    LOOL. One less screw vs. previous gen AW m15 (and on top shared screws between cpu and GPU heatsink. Same as Dell use for their XPS model (FYI. XPS and AW line share same ceo and engineers). The big questions is... Will next model come with one less aka 5 screws?:rolleyes:

    Is it ok if I officially dub this Aw 15 R2 a Jokebook? I think it's earned it.

    Jokebook and Punbook. Man I think seeing this broke me today. I need a drink. I'll be back.

    And don't you go putting idea's in Azor's head about soldered storage. Bad Papusan! Bad!

    Frank Apple and Frank Xpees don't rhyme. Frank Fruit would work too I guess.

    I thought might have been making a joke he worked for Razer or something. Frank Azhat works in my opinion.

    Well, he is effectively working for Razer. He managed to dumb the 15 inch line down so hard, the Blade Advanced is actually an overall superior option now.
    LOL, you know it's bad when customers start calling the man in charge names out of sheer despair!

    Yeah Razer overall is better. This is borderline apple level bad. We still have 2 m.2 slots, but the M15 R3 will likely take that away too. :(

    Yep both the 17 and the 15 r2's are Apple styled junk. One single part goes bad, toss the thing in the trash (lovely) and start over. But wow they are so thin! Next they'll be gluing the bottoms on because why the heck would you want to go inside the thing anyway? That way they could hide that internal design. Next step will probably be soldering the SSD onto the motherboard, like Apple. It's a really tough bar to clear when you make a "new" design that makes Razer the more serviceable brand. That really takes skill. Awesome job Dell. Now we know why they built the 51m. Because the other half of their engineering group were about to weld everything into one silicon lump. They've made the gaming laptop brand nothing more than an iPad.

    True. Since they are unlikely to resurrect the AW 15, the only hope is that they make a 15 inch variant of the A51, necessarily with Optimus (BIOS selectable if need be) to ensure decent battery life.
