    I'm actually thinking about sending back my m15 for this. Of course the Area 51 is 500 more but that's with better specs and uogradeability. My reasoning is why not spend a little more on something that could last you 5 years longer. I'm not worried about weight. Being a buff tech geek, and workin out since I was 12 it shouldnt bother me. I 'll just probably get as laptop pad if I wanna rest it on my legs for awhile. Then the other thing that comes to mind is "Unlimted Power." It excites me lol

      i really dont like the video about the part of being impossible as clevo / sager / prostar / HID / EUROCOM has been doing this for year , P750TM1,P775TM1,P870TM1 all support the i9 9900k as well all the intel desktop chip and the older gens the p750/p775/p870 support the lga 1151 desktop chips as well and you linus know this more then most!!! as i really find this funny with all the marketing saying "THE WORLDS FIRST LAPTOP WITH A DESKTOP CPU " IS A LIE , as well the thermal paste is worst i have seen lol .. on the cpu ... but keep in mind alien ware was what company before dell bought the logo ????

        If you want upgradeability/cost effectiveness, buy a barebones laptop, and/or an EGPU. Nvidia killed MXM for a reason. People will only be able to get graphics cards for these things from dell/alienware, how much do you think hey will cost?

          Once again Dell its OP. Dell is the only company moving towards right to repair. Dell has the best customer service ever. They will send me parts for me to replace on my own. I use to work for them and their policy are so amazing! Dell is the version of mac using Wndows. Apple says some to our genius bar. Dell says we will send you the part or we will have a tech to visit you. This dell warrant does not apply to anyone who does not buy a higher end. If you buy inspiron you will not get this service you will just get apple service asking you to bring it in.

                On May 6th I ordered area51m 9900k, 2060gpu custom build from Dell. They told me it would be delivered by the 23rd. On the 16th I asked for an update and the agent told me there had been a parts shortage, but that the machine was built and only lacked some kind of software update. Each subsequent day when I asked for any update I was told the same thing; the laptop would ship and arrive on time. Finally, on the 22nd, when I managed to speak to a manager, he told me the order failed to reach production, (meaning the laptop had not even begun to be built) and that I would need to cancel the order and rebook it all over again, waiting probably another 3-6 weeks. There was no explanation as to why the order was never processed nor why agents were telling me all along that the machine had already been built and would ship according to schedule.

                Dell blatantly lied to me for 3 weeks. I cancelled the order, but there was no way I was gonna trust Dell with rebooking the order. They lied to me every step of the way; they could not be trusted for anything after that. MAYBE they would fulfill the order properly the next time, but how could I trust them? There was ZERO offer for compensation for lost time and to add insult to injury, the sales consultant I spoke with said she'd make sure the rebooking price stayed the same, as though she was doing me some kind of favor by NOT charging me more! I'm currently in the process of filing a complaint with the better business bureau.

                Dell stole 3 weeks of my time waiting for them to do what they said they would do. Now I've ordered through HIDevolution; they are a little more expensive but they have a much better reputation AND they offer delidding and other services which Dell does not. MAYBE Dell will fulfill your order properly, but don't trust them. Check around online and you will see they are notorious for this kind of behavior. I thought I would be the exception, but I was very much mistaken. They will lie straight to your face and offer as many apologies as it takes to make you give up. If you want a custom laptop, do not go with Dell.

                  @haha9413 It's dishonest to pause production but still take orders as though there is no problem. This is the kind of thing I was getting from Dell day after day. They simply cannot be trusted to tell the truth.

                  They pause the production because these a few A51m people bought got on fire and melt down. They try to fix the issue before shipping it to new customers.

                    With how tightly compact those components are I'm sure the life expectancy of that laptop will be reduced comparative to that that of a regular laptops vs a computer.

                          I have an Eurocom sky x4c with desktop parts. I’m running a 9600k and rtx 2060 MXM 3.1 and it’s way easier to open and upgrade compared to the a51

                                                            Dell of all people!? They always made the least accessible, least upgradeable kit. You have to admire a company that can learn the simplest single lesson in a mere 30 years!

                                                              That is very impressive hardware and the ability to open it up and clean it, makes me think it could last for a long time, making the cost less scary. But I'm wondering; can you choose to use the Intel graphics on the monitor instead of the Nvidia graphics? The ability to use a laptop for gaming is very cool, but you still want to do serious stuff with such an expensive machine. It would be very nice if I could just run Windows in a VM, passing through the nVidia graphics to that VM, stealing the graphics using Looking Glass and displaying it as a window on Ubuntu.
