    I have finally decided to get away from gaming laptops. While they are great I have to have to latest and greatest and you can't upgrade laptops much. Last night I called Dell and ordered an Aurora R6. My question is can this thing be upgraded whenever I want? I know I can change ram and graphics card put how about the processor? I did upgrade to the i7 7700k with the liquid cooled 850 watt power supply. Really my biggest question is in a couple years can I upgrade the processor if need be? IMG_1670.JPG

    I don't have an Aurora, but after watched some videos around, i think it's fully upgradable cause the components are standard. However I don't know how it works with warranty, better start some upgrade after warranty expire.

    Warranty is in effect only with the base components, if you put in a 7740K and the whole system breaks, you will still be honored warranty but the 7740K will be on your part.

    As long as Intel sticks with the same socket you should be able to upgrade. Might require a bios update.

    The 7700K should last you a long time though. By the time you would want to upgrade the cpu you would probably want to replace the whole system.

    Fairly easy to upgrade the GPU's so that will keep the system going for a good while.

    Haha...you would have a better chance at hell freezing over. Intel changes socket types more often then some people take a bath.

    Hi. As Mobius1 said, the warranty will cover the base components or upgrades made by us. But in regards to your questions, you should be able to upgrade most components as long as they comply with the system's specifications (sockets, power consumption, space inside case for the components, etc).

    7740K = HEDT socket. 7700K is most likely last gen for this socket. Aka no better processor options!!
