    Will do, currently the expected delivery is March 1, 2019 so its going to be a while. That may be a placeholder though.

    Ordered off the Canadian site, was a while behind the US site.

    Does this system support only 2400MHz memory speeds?

    Might be a placeholder. Post some pics of the BIOS screens when you get a chance.

    Congrats on the system!

    No, they said higher speed memory is coming later. The RAM sticks being shipped are actually 2666Mhz but they're running at 2400mhz due to some "architectural limit" w/e that means.

    This is what I'm looking at the moment. Seems a little steep considering I haven't added any extended warranty to it. [​IMG]

    I don't like where this is going, Can't trust Dell to do the right thing. I mean last 5 years have been pretty miserable.

    Just wait for reviews then. Everyone is giving this new laptop crap when we haven't seen any reviews, no one owns one, etc.

    It's a different class laptop from what they're been selling since after 2013. After six years they've gone back to upgradable laptops.

    I'd wait if you're skeptical on this machine.

    I'm waiting it out a couple of months. No $$$ and need to see where things go.

    My order was similar, chose windows 10 pro and 2080. Also did 512gb m.2 + 1tb sshd. Honestly the price seems fair to me, years ago I purchased a alienware 17 r4 for $200 less (returned it due to heat issues).

    30 day return policy my friend, thats what I did with my alienware 17 r4 in like 2016 I think? Returned it a day after I got it for a full refund.

    I agree. I've been waiting for AW to launch something like this and I'll buy this system as soon as some of my doubts have been cleared. For me personally, nothing beats a Dell warranty.

    AW with desktop processor has me sold from day 1.

    21-days in some cases but yes! This is the one good thing about Dell, their return policy is quite good.

    If any of y'all return one , let me know, I'll look for it in the outlet. :rolleyes::D:p

    Seeing your sig, you've owned one of their best 17" laptops (M17xR2 being best)

    So you know how their glory days were.
