    Indeed. TBH I would seriously look at that with 9980HK if I was shopping now. Can even get a fingerprint reader lol There are a few downsides like the lack of AGA, unknown thermal performance, and a slightly underwhelming GPU (seems to be in the 2060 ballpark), but overall a strong option for the pro customer. The 16GB RTX 5000 in the 17" variant looks badass though. I wonder what the TDPs on those GPUs are and what PSU they provide.

    Edit: moreover these laptops have DGFF graphics cards rather than soldered GPUs...

    @Mr. Fox ! Glad to see you are still around. You most likely do not remember me. I have not been around since a couple years after I bought my m18xR2. It is getting old and I am looking for a replacement. I was looking at the new ones. Man did dell shoot themselves in the foot or what. Clearly, the ones making then decisions on the product line have not got a clue, again. When will they learn. Build a solid product and DO Not Get GREEDY or Stupid. They are going to run the alienware line in to the ground, if they have not already.

    In case they do not pull their heads out of there butts, what should I look at instead?

    In the mean time I think my alienware options are the alienware 17, m17, area 51m. For overall performance and reliability what would you advise?

    It's not very difficult to look up the dimensions on Dell website... It's not exactly the same. The Precision is about 0.2kg lighter while being 5cm deeper.

    So, is it confirmed that, it doesn't have any free RAM slots?

    [Wait...how? M15 R1 had big bezels. I am confused. What are you talking about.]

    Edit: Sorry, I misunderstood a comment,

    I was about to buy one but couldn't find any other ram configuration so I talked to one of the agents and was told that it was soldered :) not sure what they were thinking there :)
