    So I was just watching an Alienware holiday shopping list video from the Alienware channel and when the dude got to the Alienware 51 backpack, he said he was just throwing this idea out there but even though it's meant for the 17 inch notebook, what's to stop you from putting something bigger than a 17 inch notebook in it and then winked and said he was "just saying". Seems like a pretty clear hint.

    Lack of proper +18 inc panels will stop this dream. Alienware don’t even have proper panel options for their 17 inch Area-51m.

    The current 2019 standard for 17” gaming laptops pretty much is the 1080p 144hz with or without Gsync.

    The wink is odd though......what could he mean other than an 18 inch (or larger....) laptop? Maybe another ITX desktop?......

    Could you imagine a return to a 19 inch machine like the old mALX??

    Yeah seems pretty obvious to me something is coming, 18, 19, hell even 21 inch curved like the Acer Predator 21x. Something is up.

    Indeed we would at least need something with 2560 x 1440 or 2560 x 1600 resolution and a refresh rate of 120Hz or higher but which panel manufacturer would be willing to produce that in 19" to 20"?

    Please note that I am not mentioning 18" as I think that it is too close to 17.3". 19" would be a more substantial upgrade in size, especially with a 16:10 panel.

    Hoping for a 21 inch curved with dual GPU's like the Predator 21x. Loved that thing.

    Not taller than a classic 17" DTR screen so I was not impressed with the 21x. Now if ithe screen was at least 16:9 or taller...

    $10000 and in a few hundred units. Expect a huge jump in price vs. the standard with custom made 18,4/21” screens. How the quality will be for low samples sold is another question. Panel maker’s doesn’t run charity. It’s about making profit!

    This is the biggest hurdle for getting a good bigger screen - numbers. It does not help that some want 4k while others (me included) would prefer some kind of QHD resolution and everybody of course wants a higher refresh rate.
