    A new lounge for Alienware's mobile return to AMD CPUs. It's distinct enough from it's R4 Intel brethren to deserve its own owner's lounge. More information to be updated in this post.

    I am excited that they are FINALLY going back to SODIMM RAM instead of soldering it on the motherboard. Albeit a small one, its a step in the right direction :).

    With the removal of the AGA and mini-DisplayPort outputs with no extra USB-C with DP-alt mode, I'd call it one step to the side (bringing back SO-DIMM RAM that should never have been taken away in the first place) and one step back.

    Good stepping stone to Ryzen 6000 series which will support USB 4 (Thunderbolt)

    OLED is overrated. This is one thing I'm glad has been left out here.

    Alienware posted a longer teaser for the m15 R5, and if you watch in slow motion of the back of the laptop, you can see a "D" next to the USB-C port. I believe this means that USB C port does double as a Display Port.
    Either that, or it's just there to show it can do power delivery like it says in the tech specs sheet.
    EDIT: Well, apparently, one of the renders is wrong. On Videocardz' article, there's a lightning symbol next to the USB-C port, so I don't know which is correct.

    I'd be more inclined to believe the video that comes straight from Dell. The "D" next to the port indicates DisplayPort output. The lightning symbol is typically reserved for Thunderbolt, though it could mean the capability of charging the laptop. However, that would contradict the spec sheet, which says the USB-C supports power out, not in. Will have to wait for reviews to see what is what.
