    MiniLED you say? Haha. Do have some of these panels in hand now. I am trying to find a driver to make a portable display out of it.

    There are tweaks for portable ones to make the battery last a decent amount of time usually.

    Is it normal for new releases to have critical hardware changes the same month the systems are to be shipped? As in this case the thermal design? Does it not take a good amount of time to test these things in new laptops?

    Remember Intel had to (forced to) delay the release of Comet lake desktop chips (one of the reasons was all the talk about high power consumption).

    This is true. But I’ve never had a good experience with downward firing speakers. I’ve some loud ones, but they’re never as good as front firing you up ward firing speakers. Ever. Granted I’ll where headphones when I game if I must. But everything else I want good speakers. ;)

    Yeah the M15 and M17 series Alienware laptops are downward firing. The last gen thick boys still had front firing and sounded a lot better. I don’t think they had a sub?

    I’d be ok if they dropped the HDD for a sub. Then again I would expect a third m.2 slot if they did. No desktop replacement should only have two storage slots. :D

    And no desktop replacement should have same amount usb ports as a couple of year old Applebook.

    i wouldn’t say it’s common, but when the competition is doing so well, I bet Clevo wants to take back crown of the best cooling DTR. I have test results of the new AW51m, and the figures are actually a little better than the X170SM-G, so I think Clevo is trying harder to improve the cooling, and I do believe there are a lot of room for improvements.

    Tested it different ways? Cpu only or/and Cpu and Gpu in full load? What of those did you compare with? Hotter Cpu or Gpu? Or both?
