    Usual Dell MO which updates newer models from Day 1 almost everyday instead of doing all that in factory and baking all features from Day 1.
    He has taptop transformer cube along with many phones that keep track of SW updates with voice input and those devices are powered by Cat Power.

    Confused by something... which dell/aw app is recommneded for updating? There is the Alienware SupportAssist app and also the Dell Update Application. Don't they do the same thing?

    I've been using AW SupportAssist app (what is the plugin? Is that so you can run checks from the web?).

    It's driving me crazy though... continually says that my Intel chipset "driver" needs updating. I've had this same behavior from several AW laptops I've owned as well.
