    What a stupid idea upgradeable laptop.

    Technology improves. There’s really no point to upgrade a laptop unless its ram or storage. That’s it.

    Everything else is a waste of time.

    Power envelope of gpu changes.
    Who makes mxm cards anymore?

    It’s a noble idea but a stupid idea nevertheless

              ya this thing is an overpriced waste of money. for one nobody is going to be needing to go from a 9900 in 4 years, and that GPU is proprietary and any future new ones would have to be custom made for this particular computer, witch would probably be bloody expensive. this hardly compares to the wonderful upgradability of a desktop where i can physically take any video card out their now and in the future and put one in guranteed within the next 5 years, hell More to be honest. i could take a 10 year old tower with a pci express x16 slot and fit a new 2060 in, your telling me their will be new video cards for this laptop around then? nah, just get a new lapotp.

                          Waring to anyone buying this system thinking it is an easy upgrade to a new gpu. Dell is selling this system with 3 different heat pipe setups. So if you are thinking of saving money now and getting the 2060 or 2070 and want to upgrade in the future you will need to buy a new heat pipes also. Don't forget a new power brick too. There is a 7 pipe config, 8 pipe config and a 8 pipe config with side pipes. Dell is not advertising this.

                                  Someone needs to make an itx/atx laptop case with different screen/monitor MHz accessories. There is a market for it, matter of fact it could get rid of most of the bullshit laptops on the market.

                                    it seems m17x r4 could run rtx series better than 1080 since it has lower power requirements
                                    Taken from eurocom discord.

                                    Chinh Phan but we have m15x, m17x r4 and this thing, they using the standard 3.0b in fact almost 70% of these kind of laptops were using 3.0b and 3.1b, that's standardization you're looking for.

                                    +reza wahyu look, I believe we both want the same thing here. A fully customizable laptop. This can not happen until there is a standardization of components. This starts at the base aka motherboard. The smallest form factor supported by AMD and Intel is the itx, it sounds like a good starting point.

                                      OMG, when he removed the heat sink from the mobo, the sloppy thermal paste all over the side of the socket surprised me. Also, not surprised to see that Dell hasn't done anything to improve their crappy monitor hinges. I had an MX-14 R1, within 3 months of using it the plastic hinges cracked. I superglued that hinge back together and got rid of it asap. Since then I've never considered an Alienware laptop ever again.

                                            Anyway an used m17x r4 would cost probably 200usd or 300usd
                                            While a gtx 1080 for laptop probably as much as 800usd.

                                          I really want to see more laptops like this, future proof laptops not only brings a good opportunity for competition in the pc market, but also allows for the benefits of a laptop without the shortcomings.

                                            That thing still able to run gtx 1080 at full power with i7 3920xm.

                                                                I have seen a news that alienware will present in March oled monitors 4k for desktop computers and laptops, I would like to know if this is true and if you can see this screen in the area of 51 m. I would settle for placing the 4k screen of the m17 since this is the reason that prevents me from buying it, since I find it disappointing that the most powerful laptop in the world has a total HD resolution.
