    Almost all ODM I know of, if the item is built out of US and is for Gov. use, it must be sent to US for all software install OS, etc.

    Switching to dedicated graphics only in the BIOS was one of the things bricking laptops.

    Let's just say that Chinese businesses don't work the same as the western ones. There is no real separation between them and the Chinese government.

    Happens on my sister's ideapad lineup. But instead of bricking any OS will boot into black screen with no display output.
    Then again, any Intel based PC you buy it comes with free tracking mechanism called MEI, yeah security and privacy compromised even on US made laptop like HP or Dell.

    I was jumping up and down when I first heard of this machine. But once I got into the details, my enthusiasm was squashed. The first squash was the two powerbrick requirement. I was hoping it wouldnt need that much horsepower with an RTX2070, but no such luck. Then I started looking at M17's with a 2080 maxQ, and discovered nothing but 60hz panels! Seriously??? Still on hold, looking at Strixes and Raiders, waiting for the machine that fulfills my spec requirements.

    I reinstated my order again with HIDevolution. It will take about a month to get it, around 2 weeks till Dell ships it to them then maybe another week till I receive it after HIDevolution the upgrades which I ordered which include a Silicon Lottery 9900K rated @ 5.1 GHz

    Isn't that over 6000$?

    Is the cpu lottery worth 650$ for 0.1 ghz more?
