    Ya, it's a scam no doubt.

    If you guys can find a Kingston KHYXPX-MIE 8GB sticks RAM anywhere on the internet, please do post links as I want to upgrade my RAM without wasting more money on this laptop.

    I was planning on giving Donald a call when the time comes to pick up a 51M, this is disappointing to hear. Do you know if Xotic is any better?

    Yeah, optimize the Platforms reliability! And not a single words on why this was really needed:D Maybe due what I have said before? Do whatever needed to reduce the RMA numbers. Swap out burned out parts for own costs ain’t cheap. I wonder what the next firmware update will contain.

    Someone needs to tell him Alienware support is telling people that 1.5.4 is garbage and not to install it.... WTF?!

    Whilst I agree with you, practically there is not much choice for those who want to buy a powerful laptop and customised to their own needs right from the word go. You cannot do that with any other brand except the Clevos. With MSI for example you will buy whatever the retailer has in stock, the combination of screen type, RAM, disks etc is determined by the retailer, not by you. And I do not think any others have the structured support the warranty of Dell.

    Guys I need some help. I finally managed to get dual booting working again. When I press F12 I can select the other SSD and it works great.

    Now the option has mysteriously disappeared and all I have is "Windows Boot Manager" again. What gives?
