    Just canceled my order. Reading this forum and others just makes me feel like the 51M is still in it's early stages and Dell has some issues to resolve. I ordered the Area 51 desktop instead... I'll revisit the 51M toward the end of the year when it should be more refined, stable, and better screen options.

    Anyone play Crackdown 3 on this laptop? Just played an hour long session for the first time and had some questions/observations:
    1. Seems like there is a slight stutter, even just on High settings (though its worse on Ultra), even though the FPS is 100+ at all times
    2. Apparently the game doesn't like an overclocked 2080, just crashes, have to play on stock clocks
    3. My temps get higher on this game than any other I've tried so far. The Division 2 on ultra even with a slight OC doesn't get this high. After an hour my temps (all stock) were 83 CPU and 73 GPU on Crackdown 3

    Anyone else seem to have stutter issues or have any ideas how to fix it? I'm thinking it might just be a poor port from Microsoft, because even Forza Horizon 4 gets a slight stutter from time to time and these are the only two Xbox games I've played on the PC.

    Yep same here especially in forza. Happens on my desktop too. Also, your temps are actually very low, no worries there

    The AW17R5 has a dedicated subwoofer underneath.

    It also looks as if the edge has cuts and small dents across - looks like it was mishandled during assembly.

    Come on. There is an extra woofer in the AW17R5, and I presume in other laptops too, which can reproduce bass frequencies better than the other loudspeakers mounted inside those laptops. The user gets to hear some extra bass. A laptop that's without this extra woofer (eg A51m) is missing out - assuming the same quality in the rest of the sounders. Whatever your definition of "subwoofer" is, the fact is that some laptops have an extra speaker, an extra "bass sounder", that the A51m lacks.

    I blow dusk off, then use a slightly dampened microfiber cloth for oils and smudges
