The Alienware m15 R2 can do basically everything I'd ever want a computer to do... but at that price, should you just get two instead?

Haha my undervolted and repasted 8750H does 3.8 to 3.9 Ghz on all cores as advertised in Cinebench. It smokes every 8750H chip out there and also most of 9750H chips.

How does this compare to the R3? That one is so heavy it seems, but would it be quieter/better performance? I know nothing about gaming laptops haha! But love the look and do video and music editing.

So a year later and area 51m users are differentiated between R1 and R2. That's right they developed a new model for an upgradable laptop. Why that makes no sense you may ask? And you know what, you're absolutely RIGHT. R1 users aren't given the opportunity to upgrade to the newer chipset that comes with R2 , NO motherboard upgrades to utilize Intel's new 10 series chipset. So basically they lied. They cheated. They failed. Don't buy Alienware

Linus, this has nothing to do with this video. But I'm considering buying the dell xps 13 touch laptop at $850 dollars I currently have the Acer Chromebook R11 so this would be a massive upgrade, (this would be the biggest purchase of my life) would you recommend this laptop?

I've spoken about getting an Alienware to a friend and he just said straight up, "Yeah it's cool, but I don't want to look like a tool in public." He's not wrong...

It looks like you can't upgrade the wireless adapter either, which is annoying. That is a necessary upgrade for all Dells with the rubbish Killer wireless adapter.

I found doing a comparison of a similarly spec'd G7 and M15 R2 the R2's performance was noticeably better than the G7. I did not have the same experience with temps that Linus stated though.

Would you recommend this or the Lenovo X1 Extreme gen 2 for work as a Data Scientist / Machine Learning Engineer? I won't to any gaming on it, but I will do tensorflow modeling which benefits greatly from GPU power. I like thst the Lenovo is more serious-looking (I don't care at all about rbg lights everywhere, it's more a con than a pro for me) but it seems that the Alienware has a much more powerful GPU for the same price? Also, how do they fare in terms of buld construction (my current laptop is 9 years old and still working "fine" even if the battery died some time ago) And what about the keyboard? The ThinkPads are famous for their keyboard, but you said this one is very good also. Better than thinkpad, worse or just different? Thank you in advance for your answers ;)

Regarding the last part: they are assuming that everyone has a lot of space to fill with computers. My home only has room for a laptop so the alienware and a screen is the maximum I could afford to have space wise. Also I don't want to have to synchronize all my data, I want to have everything with me and be able to do any task wherever I go. So the good desktop + decent laptop option does not do it for me.

Got this 5 months ago worst purchase of my life. Had to factory reset it after about after 30 hrs on the phone with AW. After that thing still doesnt work and nobody calls back to finish the support calls after we both schedule an appointment. The support is beyond awful. You are basically paying to work on a computor. Maybe I got a bad one idk, all I know is the customer service is horrific. I asked to be transferred to the complaint extension and they acknowledged it and sent me to another technician. Definitely will not consider another dell product.

M17 2070 is about $2200, with $500 more you can get area 51M which has 9700k and full rtx 2070, comes with two power bricks and desktop parts. But it is hard to move around.

After spending the past entire week (6-8 hours a day) reviewing the best high-end gaming laptops with 10th gen processors and SUPER cards, I've finally come across the end of this video that has the best advice one could want. Now I am shifting my priorities to a mid-level ultrabook, great thermals, good enough performance, 16GB RAM/512GB NVME storage, and keeping the price at or under $2000. Then building a high end desktop later in time for ~$2500. I think that's the best compromise, instead of shelling out $4000+ for a high end gaming laptop. With terrible thermals and needing to repaste, purchase a cooling pad, external mouse/keyboard/monitor just to run it.
