    How much did you pay for this system?(I'm sorry if I missed it somewhere)

    Also, what is the difference in performance between a regular SSD like Samsung Evo and this Dell provided 1TB (+8GB SSD) Hybrid Drive ? Is the Samsung worth the upgrade?

    Forget getting from Dell and use HID to get Samsung SSDs or you can choose w/o any SSDs if you already have one purchased during black friday sales.
    BIOS update will be through WU.

    That's the best thing you did. You see we don't know the thermals of that thing yet so it is imperative to get it from HIDevolution, let them test it and do their magic with their thermal mods.

    In that case, you'd still get the Ultra Male Tweaks as well. Win-Win situation :D

    Glad to be back in the Alienware Gaming Team man

    I have 0 $$ of that man. I'm taking a loan. Seriously. Then I will sell my current laptop when I receive the Alienware to be able to survive.

    Keep following my order thread, once they start building it, I will tell you what memory they will use as they'd test it to save you the trouble

    Are you getting it from HIDevolution BTW?
