    The exhaust certainly has changed and even the overall shape from the backend looks different..

    Looking at the picture, it's definitely still an aluminium chassis. The thickness of the red frame corresponds to the metal chassis and not a plastic one so that would be good news.

    The screen does not look RGB as Joker mentions but there is a film on top of the screen that has not been removed and with the effect of taking a picture that could easily dull the colors enough for us to not know the difference from those pics.

    I love the refreshed design, too bad no pics of the back are shown or the bottom this would have helped us understand the difference in cooling. Also the audio plugs are now on the left side.

    yea more alieny is a good thing! umm...is there usb 3.0 in there, i cant tell I dont see any.

    Once they throw in an extream sandybridge cpu and duel 6900's were going to see 30k in 3dmark06 lol. That will be exciting.

    As much as I like the design alienware has nothing to do with muscle cars so why design a laptop around it? I think making the machine look less like a car is a good thing and hope they completely redesign the case sooner then later.

    The bigger touchpad is nice but after looking at the frontal view again, I don't like the new grill design at all nor do I think the control cover with the alien design looks nice--bit too kiddy looking. So far I think the R1/R2 look nicer but we all know that it's whats inside that counts. I'm super curious about the cooling they employed. If the design is 16:9, we'll probably see a standard WLED and/or B+RG like the XPS series have. Both are okay but not as good as RGB LED.

    Exactly! The media buttons look out of place and doesn't quite integrate into the overall design. Even I prefer the R2 design.

    Yeah I guess I agree too about the buttons but it won't matter as long as the cooling and performance are there. On the other hand if the screen is 16:9 I am not going to be happy.

    Wonder when they are going to release it though.
