    Can this case be treated as false advertising? I hope someone sue them:mad:

    Not so sure it will help... As long people continue jump on it it won't change. This apply most companies. But some has to be... Or better say prefer to be the bellwether/bell sheep.

    Nothing have changed the last 15 months...

    As I've said repeatedly over the last year... You won't see a change.

    Best thing you can do is point stuff like this out, so that others are aware of the corporate nonsense slop they're being fed.

    In the exploded view you can see the simplified render of what the 2080S looks like, and it looks physically different to the R1 2080, the heatsink is confirmed different, so won’t fit physically either. The palm rest has an indentation around the keyboard to fit it under the screen, as well as cutouts for every key, meaning it is a chiclet keyboard like on the m15 and m17. Also the vents under the screen are now around the alien head power button, hex shaped and much more prominent (“47% more airflow” claim comes from that I’m sure). The SD card a lot means the layout within is different to accommodate it.

    This makes my choice in kid 1s new laptop easy...MSI Raider for the win.

    I did not really buy the 51m to upgrade graphics internally....BUT...this is obnoxious and feels like an "FU" to brand loyal buyers.

    Perfect time to visit, didn't even realize the R2 was announced today LOL

    So first off, I am going to wait and see the R2 MB design. It's quite possible the 2080S does work in the R1 and could be something as stupid as the heatsink being different (looks like we got some friends in China working on that).

    I am mostly interested in that 4K display. When the R2 does come out, I will be definitely on the hunt for one.

    Further confirmations from Alienware that we won't see any upgradability on the Area-51m concerning the CPU and the GPU.[​IMG]
