    I got the Vindicator 2 17 when I had the AW 17 R4 before returning it for a refund as I wasn't happy with it. They let me keep the backpack thou, so I still have it unused. Gonna be a perfect fit for the 51M! :)

    I still have a 15” vindicator for the exact same reason. They refunded me for the laptop as they couldn’t fix it and were not interested in the bag!

    Even my AW 13 has 2 options there - Fan and CPU performance. Yeah, long gone are the days when we had open AW BIOS's with TDP, voltage and Memory controls. Well, I hope they offer a way to tweak those but not holding my breath. What a bummer...

    Yeah I am a long time Alienware user and they seem to get more sparse with every release!

    At least I got the k cpu so there are a lot of options in intel xtu or throttlestop

    Huh. Well. Dell sent me an email offering me a 10% discount on cancelled order. So it would be more than I asked for as a discount. And free express shipping. I'm gonna see if they can add some extra warranty at a discount too. Don't see why I shouldn't accept this very gracious offer.

    Anybody else in the US getting a run-around with their 51M? Bought mine on the 17th of January scheduled to arrive on the 20th. Few days ago they tried to cancel my order over a configuration error (wrong power CORD of all things) Got that figured out. Statues was put that said custom-build item is complete. Then this morning that went away and not getting they are backordered on the LCD screen! Anybody else getting this many issues?

    Man I even DM Frank Azor on Twitter and he said it was going to go on the 20th. This blows big time!

    Yup. Pretty much this. I cancelled my order a few days ago. A manager reached out and told me they want to fix this for me. I told them what I wanted for collateral. . .and surprisingly they gave it to me. Right now I'm seeing if they can add some additional warranty and I'll reorder mine. So I can't tell about the monitor backorder.
