    I'm honestly sad to see the A51m disappear. The R2 chassis was very capable with cooling, and it would have been nice to see an A51m R3 w/ Ryzen 5900X and 200W RTX 3080 Laptop.

    They should, but those that do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it. The fact of the matter is they do not learn anything from their own successes and failures, so the chance that they would learn anything from a competitor that isn't crApple (whom they aspire to be more like, unfortunately,) is near zero percent.
    Well... it was uncommonly good for the brand, and they simply cannot allow that. This fits the thought above. For the first time in roughly 10 years, they finally released a product that might come close to qualifying as something other than a disposable malfunctioning turd. These nitwits outright cancel it rather than make it better. If this doesn't highlight what kind of losers they are in bold italic red font with a yellow background, nothing will. What is really stupefying is the fact that there are people who will continue buying their broken garbage because, like Dellienware, their customers also do not learn from their mistakes.

    Eddy Ernie and Umar say they listening on their customers. Whom told them that they should castrate the 3080 Mobile from 140W down to 110W TGP in the x15? They even capped the TGP with +40% on the 3060. Not so sure all gamers is happy with near 30 up to 44% lower TGP due the need for a few mm thinner. And they did this for all Ampere mobile. And why not keep 3060 at 110W as the rest of the Ampere SKUs ? The chassis and the cooling should handle it. Oh'well... All get exactly what they asked for...

    OLD VS NEW
    3060 130W 90W
    3070 140W 110W
    3080 140W 110W

    The new thin x15 2021

    Edit.
    See also the m15 R5 + R6 with 3060. Slightly thicker models.

    You can clearly see why they also castrated the graphics in the R5 and R6. Not a pretty sight if the newer x series model perform lackluster compared to the old. Maybe they hope for the best?

    I am curious who has ever seen and thread, forum, YouTube video asking AaW to make them thinner? Who and where do they come up with this crap? All I see is people wanting upgradeable and more powerful machine. Not castrated lachijes that run 100c all the time.

    Probably an internal market analysis. If, by everywhere, you mean here, Reddit, Alienware Arena, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, then that's the only thing I can reasonably think of. I don't even think the data they were analyzing has to be just respondents of a survey; just looking at trends, what sells, what doesn't, etc from other companies.

    I know, right? So stupid. The problem is they can't distinguish between Alienware enthusiasts from the past, whom they have betrayed, and ordinary consumers that are mostly ignorant, and go with cute or whatever clique they want to be part of tells them to believe.

    Comparatively speaking it was better than their newer showings but ultimately it was an Alienware. It had its own plethora of problems like the VRM burnout issue, later bioses castrating the gpu to lower power limits, locking undervolting and so on.

    Yeah that's what happens when you have an army of designers that are not PC enthusiasts and don't know what the hell they're doing. They build desktops and so-called DTRs like a chintzy disposable turdbook.

    Time have changed bro Fox. We both is too old for this. A nice looking rgb touch pad is enough for some to jump on the unknown. The more bling bling, the better. And they know it sells.

    Who else got New Sexy Alienware X Series?

    Edit... According to the manufacturer, the Alienware x15 is the world's most powerful notebook with a height of less than 1.6 centimeters, while the x17, with a thickness of 2.1 centimeters, is at least the thinnest Alienware notebook with a 17-inch display.

    And this may help on the sales as well... The manufacturer emphasizes that the packaging consists of 75 percent recycled materials and 25 percent plastic from the ocean.

    The same thought process applies to people that believe the words of a prostitute that says she loves them. She might look pretty on the outside, but her heart is as dark, cold and loveless as a chunk of coal. She loves their money, not her "customer", enough to sell her own soul. All she really offers in return for it is lies, emptiness, shame, embarrassment and disease.
