    No it’s really different design language imo, Alienware just joined finally thin light category gaming laptops like MSI, Gigabyte and Asus did since 2 years ago I believe, since big tank design was Alienware image before. I actually like that Alienware existence and looks though, some users prefer the big laptops form factor, made thin one made me thinking loosing its durability.

    Alienware joined thin and light early 2015 when they pushed out everything soldered in their Echo models with Hybrid Power design + too weak PSU. They couldn't even add in 4 ram slots due the chassis design.

    @VICKYGAMEBOY has the official notebook record regardless brand with +15 motherboard replacements. None above or beyond.

    Wait...How many laptops he had!? When counted from 2015 when he joined the forum it means 3,75 motherboards per year, almost 1 mobo per Quartal...I think I’m lucky enough having 4 laptops, the newest main ones just passed half year playing games mostly on high 80ish cpu temperature. 50 50 with egpu setting...But my rtx card on the enclosure that often save the cpu temperature through egpu setting just rip;), almost 2 weeks on evga hand, damn I need it back!!

    He had odd throttling even with temps under 50C. Still has them. He got ripped off when Dell cancelled his extended warranty midway after he asked for too many mobos in a span of 4 months.
