    Here is a shot of my Area-51m Elite backpack with the laptop inside. Note it doses not fit in the pouch but the compartment it's in has a foam pad at the bottom that the machine rests on for protection. The pouch fits my MacBook Pro 15 with room to spare. The bag is cavernous, I feel like they could have slimmed it down a bit for day use.

    Well the costumer service and responsiveness of Hidevolution makes me think that if i get the Alienware 51m, they may be the best choice. Not to mention the best thermal options such as Delidding and Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut & Fujipoly Extreme Thermal Pads. Will update if i end up going with them.

    My first time ordering from them and Ted from Hidevolution has been amazing at answering all my questions and helping me modify my order a few times. Great customer service and I did get the delidded i9-9900k and rtx 2080 option from them, I hope to have it by next week.

    Good to know. That would've been trippy if you could fit two of those mammoths in there at once. Lol. When you say cavernous do you mean to wide or deep? I'm a bigger framed man so it might be perfect for me. ;)


    Aaaaan just got my email from fedex. Mine is on its way. Possibly Monday at the earliest. Think they should work overtime and get it to me sunday. :rolleyes:

    Pretty sure I'll still be using it when zombie apocalypse begins in a few years, haha.

    It's feels quite deep, and very tall, when I measure it it's 8.5" deep, 22" high, and 14.5" wide. So depth is not so bad I guess but something about the proportions sit's funny, could be that it does not taper at the top (8" deep at the top). I'm 5' 8" and with it on my back it looks big on me, so still on the fence on if I'll keep it. If your taller I think the proportions are going to be better for you.

    The pouch in the laptop compartment will easily fit my 17R3 from a width but the laptop sits a fraction too high to close the zipper comfortably. Imagine hauling the 17R3 and the Area-51m in the backpack :)

    I’d say it’s both wide and deep. Definitely spacious and some good protective measures were added into the build.
