    The ultimate mobile command center for storming Area 51. Would you use this? do you like the design?

    Thank you for your video. This allowed me to make my choice for a new laptop. I took the model 15 ", 4K Oled, I7 (9th Gen), 16Gb RAM, RTX 2070 Max-Q. It's just amazing !!
    In your video, you talk about undervolt CPU. Do you have please a good tutorial for a beginner like me ? Or, "command center" is a good option with the "thermal profiles" settings" ?

    Sorry to say I cant recommend Alienware laptops. Purchased in February, and after a recent software update all the lights have stopped working. Dell say the motherboard is faulty so the unit needs to return to base. As the issue is largely cosmetic this isn't worth the inconvenience to me. It also seems to be quite a common fault when I was googling potential fixes. Next time I drop over £2.5k on a laptop it will be with a company that has better assurance processes in place.

    Can someone explain why the soldered ram is bad? I don't understand laptops 😅

    • Itaku
      Itaku Před 2 dny

      Most people complaining about the soldered ram has never upgraded their laptop ram I guarantee lol. 16gb will be good for the next 4-5 years at least. Realistically most wont even keep the laptop that long they’ll probably upgrade to the next model that comes out next year or the year after. It’s like people complaining about iphone ram not being future proof but only keep their iphone for a year 🤦🏿‍♂️

    • Thomas Fisher
      Thomas Fisher Před 3 dny +3

      Pretty much, the RAM is stuck to the motherboard, and completely unremovable, which means that if you get an 8gb model, and later need 16gb, you have no options. This also means if you need 32gb, you’re toast

    I just don't want ANY gaming laptop without a g sync screen.. If I want to game, I want no tearing. It's that simple. This is why all these 4K non G sync screens are useless to me. Different if I was a content creator.

    I can't decide between OLED 4K and 240Hz IPS.
    OLED 4K Pros: - OLED
    - 4K
    - 400 nits (IPS is 300)
    - More accurate colors
    Cons: - 60Hz vs. 240
    - $200 more expensive
    - More power hungry
    OLED 4K looks beautiful and is something I've always wanted but 240Hz also sounds good. Is such a fast refresh rate necessary if I play game like Starcraft 2 and Civ 5 mostly?

    • Álvaro Mosquera
      Álvaro Mosquera Před 9 dny

      If you play those types of games the high refresh rates are totally unnecessary, especially for a 240Hz. Only for FPS games it is "crucial".
      If you still want that fluid experience, don't go beyond the 144Hz, you won't notice the difference.
      I recommend you an OLED display, however, be careful of the screen burns, always check the reviews first.

    Soldered single channel RAM & Wi-Fi card, flipped motherboard, worse battery life and thermals than last year, all while being thicker than a Razer Blade? Literally the only good thing about the m15 and m17 is the keyboard.

    R.I.P. Alienware...
