    I cant get my new Alienware 15 to setup Raid 0 ssd drive configuration. Nothing in bios or in intel rapid storage lets me attempt to make a raid 0 with my m.2 drives. Why would they take this feature out???? I may return my new laptop already..........

    Yea, i'm shocked as well, I got a second m.2 to raid-0, i almost fell of my seat when I went into the bios to find out no raid option. I'm hoping next bios update might fix that.

    Yes, at the moment there's no option for a RAID setup on that machine. We'll submit your feedback to the developers for them to review your comments.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Thanks I really appreciate it. I purchased premium support so in the mean time I'll call them and see what can be done. Not too happy right now, however.

    Seriously, these models are nearly identical to the 14, 17, 18. There shouldn't be an early adopter beta phase. Step up your game, Alienware, or get left behind.....

    It feels like the latest 2015 lineup of alienware is completely not targetted for "us the enthusiasts", which begs to question who are these "gaming notebooks" aimed towards?

    just realized that they also took away the ability to turn off battery charging as well. There goes the battery life on all our laptops because they will all be forced to sit at 100% charge all the time....... feature after feature is getting axed.
