    I fry my morning eggs on the 180W PSU. Taste like kryonaut.

    I'm probably missing something again, but it looks like you cannot order the A51m with the RTX 2080 at the minute through UK Dell.

    Not sure if this suggests anything, just thought I'd throw it out there.

    Yeah places still sell them and have no doubt Dell will have them back ASAP. I'm just wondering why they've taken it off, I'd imagine if it was just stock, it would be there but maybe have sold out next to it or something?

    No, you probably have a the Windows Store apps running in the background making the CPU busy.

    Go to Settings > privacy > background apps

    Now turn them all off except for apps that have to do with drivers (ie. Realtek Audio Console, Alienware Pointing devices)

    Guys, curious if it's possible to install M.2 22110 drive? Maybe some custom mod? Would be great to do upgrade with Intel Optane 905P 380GB.

    I have a 4tb Samsung m.2 110 and it is just too long, no way I could see adding it. If you find a way please share.

    If Dell sends out a technician to replace a part on your laptop can you tell the technician just to give you the part and let you do it all by yourself and you will send the bad part back ? I would never let a tech touch my laptop so I’m curious

    I have always asked the technician to let me do the servicing personally and make him sit down, grab a cup of tea and play with my pets. And, it has always worked. Most technicians don't have a prior experience with a brand new AW system anyway so they're very happy to oblige and learn a few things along the way. And this is from a 10+ experience with a AW usage. Try it.
