    Alienware used to have pretty impressive and interesting systems. Did order a few for work, including a SMP system, Clevo DTR based, mind you. But those days are long gone now.

    So would you bet the farm?

    I think it would certainly have to be epic. Titan class GPU, X299 up to 18 core support, max temps of 70C at stock, 4x m.2 supporting raid, pair of 2.5" bays, 4x memory slots, 17.3"/18.4" 4k 120hz display.

    I would say starting at $4999 and going up to $10000 with 18 core CPU and 4x 2TB M.2.

    Still a damn better deal than the $10450 I have to pay for the AcerBook X21 here home:D

    Oh, I followed that link...

    One can only hope then?

    You know, my fear looks like: The next generation has less performance than the current generation. This is what I fear. And that is because my work is very heavy and I always need more performance, things need to always go up...

    Yes but that's like selling the Titan-x to say the 1080ti is good value :p

    At least, you will get mainstream Intel 6 cores i7 and a bit more performance. More is better than less:rolleyes:

    With AMD in the picture at all I doubt you will see a regression.

    I've just read the title of this topic and I must say:
    [​IMG]

    To be honest:
    1) Keyboard in P700 and P800 series sucks as hell. And 17'3 laptops still utilizes 15'6 keyboard! Use the damn space you have!
    2) P870DM 970M/980M heatsink is too weak. 3 pipes? Big nope. There should be 4th over VRM/MOSFET or at least all 3 should be wide (not only middle one). Same with DM2/DM3/KM heatsinks.
    3) P775DM CPU heatsink/heatpipes should be redesigned and improved.
    4) Stock BIOS is quite trashy...
    5) Rework CCC, it's good but lack's of some useful functions -> look at MSI one.

    Rest of all is awesome. Performance, audio (at least in P870DM it's badass). Nothing else to cry/yell at.

    The heatpipes on the DM3 act as guides for the vapor chamber, they are not really the load bearing parts.
