    What I do is on the factory image, I uninstall all the drivers/utilities, then I use Driver Store Explorer to wipe every single driver off the system, then I install the latest drivers. So this way I have the factory image/easy restore if I needed it but with the same effect as a clean install.
    True, they give us the hardware, then we as enthusiasts have to make it work.

    That's actually the only two Alienware programs I installed. Lol

    With the bags, I have an Everki Titan as well as the Area 51m Elite Backpack and Gear Bag (messenger). Of the three, I strongly prefer the elite backpack. It fits the gear nicely, is the most stylish and certainly appears more compact than the Titan (although I'm not sure the dimensions are all that different). I prefer the zippers on the Titan but build quality of the elite backpack is still pretty reasonable. The gear bag is okay (same materials/quality as the elite backpack) but it's smaller and much less comfortable to carry with the full kit inside.

    The Area 51M Elite Backpack would be a great prop to for Sheldon in Bing Bang Theory, or something @Spartan@HIDevolution could safely use in real life, since very few thieves would risk their lives having a go. :)

    I have the white one:

    It looks ok but I had a client last month who purchased an Area-51m R2 from me who didn't like its looks so we ordered the Alienware Vindicator 18 for him and he says it fits perfectly. Looks much better IMO:

    @etern4l I am not able to find the white limited edition that I ordered with my laptop on Dell's site anymore. Do you know where to find it or do you think it's out of stock as it said limited?

    No idea, I've been using this:

    https://www.thenorthface.co.uk/shop/en-gb/tnf-gb/surge-backpack-3etv

    Super comfy, takes two laptops and has the easy airport security function which of course is useless now.
