    @Ultra Male had the same problem and had to uninstall and reinstall for it to show up. Most likely was broken by an update

    Loving this laptop and going to keep it for a long time. When I purchased it I just got the 1 year basic warranty, but I'm thinking of extending it since it wasn't a cheap purchase and some of the issues we've been seeing has me a bit concerned. I talked to the warranty people and was able to get them to add 2 years of premium support after my 1 year basic is done, so three year warranty total. The cost of the 2 year added warranty was $280 (ouch) but I had $80 in reward credits, so $200 out of my pocket. Decent deal?

    Disabled and still getting stuttering, I'm guessing its just a poor PC port. It does seem to get better after a few minutes of playing (or I just get used to it).

    I was looking into upgrading my Alienware area 51m display to 2k 120 hz or 1080p 144hz, has anyone done it yet or does anyone know where I can buy it.

    I nearly have the same deal, It is good because then if you dissemble and something goes wrong then you can contact them and they will help you or replace the item!

    That's a hell of a lot better deal than I got. That I didnt agree too, but they charged me anyway (I should say.)

    Was charged $358 for 2 years of basic + accidental.

    Finally delid done. Liquid metal applied. Cinebench score 4858 at 72 degrees celcius with a 100mv undervolt. :D I will detail the process with pictures for reference and burst the bubble of "third party resellers doing thermal mods" by showing the horrendous job that was on mine which I corrected after spending 7 hours on it.
