    They use Samsung and Micron memory, haven't seen Hynix on the 51m yet.

    SSDs they usually use OEM Toshiba drives.

    My Alienware Area-51m Originally came with Kingston KCRXJ6-MIE 64GB 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM then I upgraded it to the Samsung M471A4G43MB1 128GB 2666 MHz DDR4 RAM but yeah I haven't seen Hynic on the Area-51m as well. Seen on the m15 though.

    Zero, one small thing I noticed, when I had 64 GB. In the system properties it showed (64 GB, 63.8 GB Usable) but now it shows (128GB (128GB usable). Very weird but who cares.

    I didn't even have to install them one by one. I installed all the 4 SODIMMs together and when I booted, the system took longer to boot then I got a message from BIOS that the system memory capacity has been changed. Nothing else to do.

    Yes. Much more convenient for when taking it on the road. I would get one if I had an Alienware Area-51M. But I would not pay that price as I have known it was cheaper before the price hike.

    Edited: this is the one for Alienware

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/780-Watt-AC-Adapter-110V-250V-for-Alienware-Notebooks-/113255526244

    Does the Area-51M use the same power connector as MSI ? One or the other lol. BUt Still expensive ..lol
