    Money no object for a veteran...Wouldn't despise the people who ultimately pick up the bill though. I suppose you must be fairly high rank or special forces. I understand low rank vets, i. e. the bulk of boots on the ground, tend to experience modest living conditions to poverty in America and elsewhere, but I digress.

    Hope we are wrong about your new x15, although we rarely are and the specs speak for themselves.

    Has anyone seen any information directly from dell regarding the vapor chamber for the higher end models of the x17?

    it’s mentioned here: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Goodb...-newer-sleeker-kid-on-the-block.541589.0.html

    But in a video directly from Alienware that came out today () around the 4:36 mark she shows the heat sink off. It doesn’t seem to have a vapor chamber...

    She also notes in the beginning of the video that it’s the highest spec version, with the 3080 and 11980hk. If there’s any version of the x17 that should have a vapor chamber, it’s the max spec version.

    Thoughts?

    Looks like the fan assembly is from the 15" version.

    Why oh why oh why

    Yeah, I expect more people will see it the way I do. Hot to touch and you mayneed magic eyes. Or good feelings in your arms/fingers. I hate struggle in blind.
    Are you planning a RYZEN EDITION for M17 or area 51?

    If I did want this notebook can't consider it. Dell flipped the motherboard again. I really hate that. Gonna be a pain to repaste. I guess since they will be using liquid metal on the CPU may not need to be repasted as much. Dell seems to want to innovate but this is the wrong route.
