    I wonder why Dell has the x17 with full specs but the 3080 is only 8GB.

    Either way that’s a hell of a price tag and with a basic 1 year warranty.

    I'd like to get ahold of that gallium based thermal paste and put that in my own systems. The electrical conductivity of liquid metal has been a real turn off for me, but I'd like a paste with encapsulated liquid metal.

    Since Alienware has introduced this as a new exotic thermal paste, I hope other companies will produce something similar.

    I find it amusing that you only get a trackpad with lighting if you spend 1k on a graphics upgrade.

    they charge for 1 year warranty when they supposed to offer FREE 1 year on parts and service in the US but they charge you 110 bucks if you take monthly or 1 time payment. i fight that and get my money back normally. price tag is disgusting. its over valued by almost 800 bucks. 2 tb nvme is priced at 420 when a 2tb pci 3.1 with 3500read and 3200 write is priced at 193. thats a 227 dollar saving right there. minus the 110 for warranty they arent supposed to charge that 337 the cherry mx keyboard is a 120 dollar upcharge my opinion it aint worth it just get the per key thats another 90 dollar saving we at 427. 50 dollar charge for " intergraded battery" ummmmmm hello thats part of the system why are you charging us for a battery that should be included in base of laptop...minus that 50 bucks i usually fight this out with a rep. and win 477.50 they are not offering any discounts currently.......yeaaaa talk to a rep you can normally score 200-400 discount. i once scored a 1000 with a purchase of 2 desktop systems with 3090 in them. i purchased them just for 3090 to mine and resold the system. paid 3.7k for 2 3090 system tax and shipping included with 11400f 8gb ram 2tb 7200rpm system 1000w psu. which in my opinion that was worth it if you can resell the system only. Sold both systems at 700 each. so 2300 for 2 3090s. i did install rx 580 8gb in them i purchased on ebay for 100 usd before the whole graphic boom. so it really dependant on how good you talk to them.

    They are drunk[​IMG] They write whatever they find:) But from what I know... There is no QHD displays for the x17. Several is angry because of Dell's choice of panels. Maybe yooo remember Azor promised new/more choices of panels for the Area-51m ? Messed up as you remember.
