    Mine was £1850 for 8750h/1070/144/16gb/256gb90wh/nebula and a 15" vindicator bag (as we don't get a free bag in the UK)

    The 1070 is Max-Q between 80W and 90W

    180W should be just fine

    Razer's power issues are firmware related not PSU

    Lol. The original Area-51 m15x was a gorgeous laptop. I loved that skullcap design, so much so that I bought a M9750 lid for my OCZ whitebook back in the day.

    If anyone ordered the m15 and have a older m15x, m17x, m11x, m14x, or m18x In nebula red, can y’all post a side by side pic?

    I’m curious if they kept the same shade of color.

    They said in one of their videos the red was different on the new one.

    Considering this to replace my AW 13R2. Would miss the touchscreen though, but I hope the serviceability on the m15 is better. Hoping more configurations become available over time, and I wonder what would happen next year to this when supposedly mobile Turing comes?

    The new gen CPUs and GPUs should be a drop in replacement with minor motherboard tweaks into this same design. They will milk this for at least 2 gens before doing a broader redesign - that costs money. Look at the current gen Alienwares, Intel 6th, 7th, and 8th gen CPUs all in one design (and only one gen of Nvidia because they have been lazy in the absence of competition)

    Ordered the 8750H/1070/144hz/512ssd/16gb/90whr
    With Tax it came out to $2005 ish. Military discount. Still debating on canceling and getting the same specs but with 1060. Watching videos on 1060 OC vs 1070 Max Q makes me a little weary.

    Before I made this purchase I had a G7 for about a week. The build quality on those things are atrocious. Was on the fence for a MateBook X Pro with a Razer Core..but decided this was the one.

    First reviews are out: https://www.laptopmag.com/reviews/laptops/alienware-m15
    The laptop seems to get quite warm under load, but the fps on games compared to the gs65 are equal / slightly better so the cooling appears to work. Sadly there is no detail about the temperatures of the components.
    So it seems to be a solid slim and light gaming laptop.
