    I wouldn't let the thermal limits hold you back, you can roll back BIOS to bypass the limit, you can use HWInfo to control the fans which also bypasses the thermal limits or watch some of @Helifax videos in this thread. His most recent shows that even with the thermal limit you can still setup the machine to stretch its legs.

    If you are solely into benchmarking etc. Then its going to hold you back on somethings, but for every day normal gaming use, I reckon it'll be up there with best laptops you can buy today.

    Wait for R2 man! Unless you really have the need now...

    Or go for the Clevo X170 linked above... seems like another solid option since there are no promises on whether this R1 will get DGFF GPU upgrades (what I thought would be the differentiating factor)

    Hi
    I have just seen Dell are doing a 14% Discount.. + £150 cash back that save's me about £650 off the price! Of the Area51m that i am thinking about buying ..The Offer runs out soon and i am very tempted to Buy one..Do Dell do these offers often or do you think they are about to Release newer Models?..and getting rid of old stock..

    They regularly do deals off to be honest, so if you are in no rush you could wait. No one knows if the R2 version is due out soon. Its all down to personal choice.

    Is this new clevo better than the p870dm? I think I said that model right.

    Oh man, you're gonna have to define what you mean by "better". P870TM1 was the last SLI model that's now EOL.
