    The last model had probs with the heat? And only 2usb ports! Two of the reasons i didnt buy it. 3usb ports, well we getting somewhere. I cant wait for some tests to see how it is on a longer gaming sessions! May worth it for me this time. Also upgradeable, sweet.

    I have been watching your videos for about 2 years and I`m not too good with CPU and GPU upgrading but I fell that your videos are great and that I can learn a lot from them thanks Linus or Mr. Linus

    Upgradable graphics isn't that hard, all you need is a PCIe connector and power source. Migrate all the power to a single connector, and the PCIe connector can be made relatively small. It's not rocket science. Is Dell/Alienware planning on truely keeping this upgradable though? If I buy one at release, will it have components for it in a couple years, 5 years, maybe even a decade later if the chassis survives that long? There's no point in hyping upgradability if the product is killed within a few years, or if a new model is released every year. Are they going to have a solution for older components, like maybe a cheap case you can throw everything into to have as a backup desktop, or something? What about the case of the laptop itself, if the chassis does last 10+ years, is it planned to have different I/O plates for future standards of I/O? Say USB type C becomes the bottom line but also has a generation or two of successors, would I have to get an all new chassis for this, or could I just swap out an I/O plate with a new motherboard that has the newer I/O? Again, there's no point to the upgradable hype if the idea doesn't work after a few years.

    Why is Linus going crazy when Sager, Clevo, and many other laptops come with non BGA Processors and graphics cards? The GFX is cool I will say.

    Hey! Did they mention when they’d release the 240 Hz panel? You say “later this year”, did they share a specific month? Quarter? FHD @ 144 Hz for this beast is kind of lackluster. QHD @ 144 or 240 Hz should have been offered since now... like on the m15 and m17. I’m on the fence for this sole reason and would spend 4.5K immediately were it not for this.

    This is unbelievable. Imagine 10 years into the future, we'll have 128GB worth of ram, 1PB in terms of SSD M.2 storage, a core i11 (if they exist) and dual RTX 2080TI's with 20GB on each card... as an available option for those who love overkill, all in a laptop! Made super "easy", by your friends at Alienware! Have you guys seen their overkill pc towers? :D

    I Bought an Alienware back in the 00s I think 2006 the top of the range ALX with the custom spray job. Amazing Laptop, however after just 4 years there was an issue with the main motherboard which couldnt be replaced or fixed.... £2500 laptop turned into an expensive drinks mat.... I would never buy another ever again...

    I can already foresee a huge increase in security for CES 2020, as they need them to keep an eye on linus to not disassemble all the hardware that is showcased. "I wasn´t supposed to disassemble that? Ok, well here have this bag of screws and those pieces, i may or may not have dropped some of them."

    Did... did DELL just allow you to tear down a several hundred bucks computer with bare hands? On a carpeted floor? With no ESD strap or any other means of grounding?

    what is it missing? up-gradable screen, up-gradable keyboard, up-gradable motherboard. Having worked at HP, DELL and now IBM, I can confidently say that this is clearly possible at the same or smaller form factor; but they won't do it yet unless they have to, to survive.
