    I've looked at the MSI and the Clevo models off of Xotic but after configuring it came way over $3,000 and even though I have that to spend Alienware just seems like a better deal right now...There 17'' model is around $2,000 but with an 1070 and I really really want the 1080 version...I guess I can just wait until the 1080 is released and hope a good price is available or I can just purchase my last year of warranty for $150 off there site and use this until next year...Current warranty runs out on December 13th

    Whoa. I was just going to take advantage of all the huge instant savings and go for the 1070 but I will wait in the US for this version to arrive and then consider placing my order. I literally stopped talking to a rep right now.

    I tried configuring a model based on your UK site and everytime I selected the GTX 1080 chip it came back with a compatibility error with regards to the only CPU offered 6700

    Anyone know when the 1080 is launching in the US? Thread said it would be the 16th but still nothing.

    As others have stated, AW is not the one to get at this time due to the physical issue with the heatsink and CPU. I would wait until they have fixed this, especially if you're spending $3k+ on one. Clevo or Sager is solid at this time, but that may change in the future also.

    BGA is what it is. An un-upgradable machine. If upgrading is important, I would look at other options aside from AW. Cheers man.

    Be careful with the MSI. I got a GT72VR 6RE and it was awful. Performance when it was not blue screening was worse than that of the AW. It lasted all of 12 hours before I sent it back.
