    Most onsite techs read the same manual you do from the tech support page. The onsite 3rd party repair techs do not have any “on hand training” for specific computers. Most are out sourced to local or National wide provider like Unisys. Every on site tech I’ve had told me they had to look up the manual before they came because they have never worked on a Alienware.

    So, you are planning on repairing your new X17 yourself if need be? Good idea, except you would need the parts, which Dell won't just provide to you under warranty or otherwise.

    Which is why we all need to fight for the right to repair. We as consumers have to let our legislators that we won't put up with the anti-consumer practices of Dell.

    Hopefully they would do a few soon, really curious to how these new laptops would perform.

    Currently eyeing this to be the replacement for my current M17 R1.

    Good luck on those having this thin laptop. I expect it a bit hotter than the A51m even with 4 fans. A 17 inch laptop with no keypad is not good.

    Don't you want to wait for some independent reviews instead of being a guinea pig for this? Say, you end up being unhappy, how easy would it be to do a return from PH?
    BTW I assume you have AC at home? You will need it in sure.

    Don't worry, I wont be buying until either November during Black Friday/Cyber Monday or after CES next year, maybe around February or March depending on my current situation. And yeah, returning it from the PH would be a nightmare and I do, but rarely use it given Electricity costs here are the among the highest in South East Asia xD

    There would most likely be independent reviews by then or maybe even an R2 variant. Just saw someone in the AW discord say the X17 (top config) is not currently available in the US site and sure enough.. damn..
