    In theory, if I ship the laptop back to HID for repair I have to fill a form in customs and say the laptop would be out for repair. Then when the laptop get back in theory I shouldn't get to pay taxes again. Now that's in perfect world in real life is not as smooth.

    Shipping alone is around $120, plus the 2 weeks to get there, a couple of extra weeks for repair plus 2 weeks to the laptop to get back. We are talking of at least 5 to 6 weeks in best of cases. Seriously in this case I'm more in the boat of expend a few more hundred of dollars and waist less time. Plus, if HID failed the first time, how can I trust they won't fail again?

    Have you got battery saver turned on in the BIOS?

    Well I changed the screen and motherboard of my XPS M1530, changed the screen of my M17X R1, upgraded the two graphics cards of my AW 18. So I think I can handle taking apart this laptop aswell. I contacted HID and they want to talk to me over the phone. I don't have the time or I can't speak english anyway

    No problem, that's the battery behaviour explained.

    For you perhaps, not for a lot of people going for this machine. It would be interesting to see an mxm to m.2 converter though. Most people won't be able to use the speed but there is always a niche.

    tell me about it, i've been looking for this adapter for years. still havent found anything of yet to be able to use the untouched PCIE lanes in slave GPU slot.

    x8 lanes, would be a nice additional for a lot of anything, storage wise.

    just a question, do you know if laptop can only boot via primary GPU slot? or can it boot off slave GPU too like desktop. my old alienware with 2 GPUs installed without SLI cable, if primary GPU fail it will simply not use 2nd GPU to continue to work, no such option in bios too even if its unlocked. i dont see anything in clevo so im assuming not thought i'd ask.

    No as all the outputs including internal are wired to the primary card. So kissing primary = system failure as far as the ECU is concerned.
