    That's totally normally and that's how it is for everyone. It's the Thunderbolt controller and it works just fine.

    Yes you do

    Anyone find out how upgrades are handled yet? Are they selling GPU upgrades through dell?

    Nothing yet. Let's hope they stick to their word and release DGFF upgrades before the year is over..

    Well, my one month old second unit is now having the same audio output problem than the first one.
    The output jack only work on left channel. The input port can work as an output and work normally.

    Even I have the same issue on my older AW though I can see it on Ubuntu but not in Windows. It seems to default to High security mode that can accept only approved docks or something.

    @Papusan @Mr. Fox

    So here's Alienware Support's reply on Twitter regarding my concern of why they are updating the graphics drivers for all laptops EXCEPT their freakin' flagship model!

    Classical Dell Sw!ss Ch33$3

    Did you not once say that your machine is running just great and until and unless yours had stopped working you'd blame all the blow-ups, fires and crashes on the user? Apologies if that statement was not from you.

    I had the same on two of my Clevos, bad quality 3.5mm socket, did you try to jiggle the connector a little to see if it makes a difference?
