    Custom Area-51m -
    With an i9-9900K and desktop grade RTX 2080 running at 200W, this is an incredibly powerful laptop. The CPU is on an LGA 1151 socket, the GPU uses a custom DGFF connection from Dell. Both the CPU and GPU are upgradeable. Starts at $ 2300 goes up to like $ 5300.

      Not yet, I trust in the future generations of this laptop, it'll probably be simpler, lighter and more customizable. but time depends on the company.

    There have been upgradable laptops in the past. A long while ago, Sager made a 20 inch laptop that held 2 desktop graphics cards in the laptop, and you could buy new graphics cards and swap them out with new desktop graphics cards when you wanted to.

      Who says? You? I’ve built my desktops for many years, and I have a great desktop config for games and whatever I want. But I want a laptop for gaming and other purposes because I’m moving from my current location for about a year, and I don’t want to take my desktop with me. I don’t think I’d buy this Alienware because it is over priced for what you get, but using a laptop for video games is completely acceptable.

    Hi, thanks for the review. I had one question regarding this pc:
    Im an animator who works 2D and 3D. I also do some video editing. I was in the looks for a replacement for my desktop pc, wich is getting old. Was also interested in portability in case the need to travel arises. Also, I was thinking on making an investment on the long run, ie, buy something powerfull so that it lasts for many many years (my current pc is over 7 years old and I still work on it)
    Of course I also enjoy my games, but Im not too demanding. I dont really care about having a billion fps. As long as the game looks good and is playable Im ok.

    Would you recommend this pc to me?

    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.

    • Daniel Daring
      Daniel Daring 18 days ago

      @Deaunta Dukes Pretty much the same for me; parts on order. I was told it'd be roughly 3 weeks or so. -_-

    • Deaunta Dukes
      Deaunta Dukes 18 days ago

      Nice I went with the delidded option as well placed my order last Thursday from HIDevolution didn't receive an ETA... The order status shows parts are on order so can't wait to get it

    • Daniel Daring
      Daniel Daring 18 days ago +1

      @Deaunta Dukes Around June 12th, I think. I also went with the delidded option, since it was fairly inexpensive.

    The Acer predator Helios 500 chip swap from 2700 to 2700x will reap quite a bit of gain. So if Intell has something similar then you may luck out with a desktop CPU.
