    Be happy you didn't spend money on a desktop card on top:) Too small? Maybe so but when the design is flawed as this mess below it will never be as you think.

    Introducing the new XMG APEX 15.

    * Desktop Ryzen 3950X @65W - CHECK
    * 64GB of 3200Mhz RAM - CHECK

    Well, no AGA obviously and battery life not clear, but def a very promising 15 inch Alienware killer. Fingers crossed for Dell to beat that!

    Well, I think it's no more a dream or wish list. We are getting much anticipated and improved m15 R3

    In this day of more streaming and Zoom/Skype/Teams meetings it might be nice if we had at least the option to up the cam/mic levels at least to a decent quality 1080 level. If it were an option not everyone would have to buy in.

    Unforntunately, they didn't do anything to it. The new refresh still has - Soldered RAM, inverted motherboard, expensive, thermals are unknown but I doubt it will be any different than the previous one.

    That's right. Nothing more than a bunch of broken dreams. Time to start looking at other brands. XMG looks good on paper here in Europe.
