    Looks like they're going to have a new line of bags ;)

    I just looked : it doesn't even fit my Asus ROG backpack (which is fairly large). At least 6cm are missing...

    maybe someone will make a hard shell case with wheels and a retracting handle, or maybe someone already does? I can't see throwing this on my shoulder or back when traveling

    I thought this was an RTX release? They only offer up to a gtx 1080, no rtx cards.

    Edit: Errrrr fine print. Why would they even say GTX 1080? Just advertise the rtx card lol

    I have updated first post with the 119W (136W Max) cpu info and 2x330w ac adapter info in spoilers.

    Also, I've heard from two seperate sources that 240hz is coming in the future.

    I hope Dell doesn't use Battery boost since it'll toast and kill the battery at those loads. I feel in battery mode, cpu and gpu tdp locks down below 60-80W to preserve battery and prolong it.

    They do it on the m15 and m17 but I do not see a reason why they would do it on the Area-51M. It can do 330w+180w so shouldn't need battery boost.

    Depends on if Dell's engineers allowed the laptop to utilize all available power from both bricks. The 180w psu smells more as the portable solution from what I have read (Light use on the go). The most can be done in firmware. Etc cap power at a point if it recognize that the 330w psu is connected. I expect Dell still use the middle pin.

    Ordered one, 9700k / 2080. Curious is if the Alienware Vindicator 2 backpack will fit it.
