    Thats nice to know......that OCD is actually ranked as a mental disorder...I am very OCD about things and imperfections nag me to no end until I fixed it.

    I saw a Clevo laptop recently with a RGB trackpad similar to Alienware. I am sure it will be implemented in more systems.

    I dont know which Clevo barebone this is exactly, but they have it at various Clevo resellers.

    https://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/custom-laptops/proteusV-15/

    It also has the RGB stripes on the front similar to the AW15R1 and R2 series.

    Strange, I saw them at other outlets as well. I wonder who the OEM is in that case.

    @Galm ?

    I remember something about the vector series but can't remember. Galm found the OEM website with really bad english.

    Correct I’d love for myself or someone more important than me to get their hands on a unit or two to review. We still know very little about them.
