    Yeah definitely any-day over the new gimped machines.

    Hoping to see it in the AW17 too but the bummer is no unlocked sBIOS on the Haswell Revision Alienwares which cuts down the chances to slim with LVDS and the Optimus is a headache not worth at all for the PEG capable systems - 120Hz screen ones, But for the M18x R2 it would be phenomenal really wish it works in the M18x R2.

    But the thing is P5000 + 3D panel already cost full spec GTX1070 laptop:confused:

    You can buy the Panel off ebay by part no around 90USD, from a top rated plus seller.
    Make sure you get the eDP cable.

    Yes the machine you have is Haswell, But I don't know whether the Haswell HM87 Lynx Point PCH has that FDI capability or not, the CPU supports it though - from 47xxMQ to 49xxMX. Also unlike the M17x R4 and M18x R2 as I linked in the prev page our last MXM Alienware machines cannot have those unlocked sBIOSes which has multitude options and GFX switching options via BIOS & P5000 is extremely expensive forget it right now.

    Yes It should, but imo you need to test it whether it will POST or not, emitter thing check the specifications page of the P5000, It's compatible with 3DVision but no idea If it works or not, again have to test.

    I do not know '' where to buy '', if I knew it would help, 3D is important, but it is not priority, priority is GPU upgrade.
