    How is the new keyboard, Guys? Solid/flimsy? Can any of the fast typers comment on the accuracy?

    Right before the launch of the M15 alienwarearena.com was giving out 15% discount codes, but they seem to be gone now :(

    I also completed a fresh install from a USB drive as my windows reset failed.

    Mine is set to arrive tomorrow... I will give some impressions :)

    Although I only got the standard 1tb drive because I have a 512 950pro spare sitting around, I still plan on initially using it with the 1tb it comes with to test it before I waste any time swapping hardware around.

    So I have never done this before...

    My m15 is expected in a week. How do I make the bootable USB drive. Won't I require the activation key. I noticed on the dell website that they don't include the recovery disc with the purchase..

    Bob, Love your channel, had to say it.

    Secondly, I know this is a rather superficial issue, but has anyone skinned or matted their bezels or their laptop shell on this? I'm getting mine next week and I've looked into vynal black matte but wasn't sure how clean I could get it to look.

    -- So, easiest thing to do is go here [ https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 ] and download the tool.
    -- Put in a 16gb or so flash drive, and go through the prompts. Once it's done - and you're ready to install windows on the Alienware - insert it, power it on, press F12 (If it's anything like other Alienwares) and choose your USB. Go through the setup, format your drives and once Windows installs, it should activate without issue due to the key being imbedded in BIOS.
