    Actually its an old way to look at laptops. lol you are to young to remember i guess.
    Dell Compac and Spector had video upgradeable laptops and much more.
    Used to be able to swap out CD/DVD, batteries and HD from one slot. i personally beta tested and sold laptops that had a Primary HD... Plus 2 slots that swapped out the above hardware. Of course WiFi, memory upgrade, PCMCIA IV slot or 2x PCMCIA type III, upgradable CPU and Video.
    This was way back when we actually magazines with pricing and sales. Yep back when we read off paper.
    i think i stall have a few Pre 2000 issues laying around.
    Oh yeah dont forget SCSI II and Parallel for printers and 4 USB.
    Free trade and Politics killed the laptop. it boiled Laptops and tech down to a minimalist world. the Common Lemming dictated demand and customizable laptops went away for almost 15 years with rare exceptions.
    Glad Dell got its head out its .. @$$.
    ps i know my grammar sucks, gives something for the snowflakes.

    I had a horrible experience with an old Dell XPS M1730 laptop many moons ago, and Dell vehemently denied overheating problems with that machine.
    People had their laptop gpu's replaced over and over and over again, but according to Dell "Theres no manufacturer defect"
    Never again.

      @Shaun Powers I did get the old one but from every BRclip video I saw reviewing it, they all said it was upgradeable in almost every aspect. If I can upgrade the ram, hd, and hopefully graphics card, I'm good.

    • Shaun Powers
      Shaun Powers 24 dias atrás

      @Red Wave Studiono snippy comments, just bad news. Jopefully you rocked the old m17. The new one has soldered ram, nothing upgradeable besides ssd. But even the old one is only slightly upgradable.

    • Verpal
      Verpal Mês atrás

      @DirtDust Honestly, modern day Clevo have better temp, and better price, however, its competition also become cheaper, and it is increasingly difficult to get third party MXM/laptop gpu outside of Clevo themself.

    • DirtDust
      DirtDust Mês atrás

      @Verpal I have a old Clevo XRock D901c with 2 9800m gtx and 775 socket on notebook from 2008! The temps is scary (80/85) at full load with new thermal compound. The desktop processor and motherboard is amazing engineered for old era pc, I buy from America for 5000$ many many years ago and again today is good ;) (for normal use and light gaming)

    (0:52) RTX 2080 Ti has 11gb of "memory". Linus either got the amount wrong or the model. The only RTX card that has 6gb of GDDR6 memory is RTX 2060.

    ALso he said you can put a 2080ti but on their website it says 2080, not only that he said it has 6gb of gddr6 vram when it actually has 11gb

  • Kaustav Kapur

    3 problems with this. Alienware says that you can upgrade this laptop so from an rtx 2060 you can put a 2080, but you can just buy a 2080 from the beginning. Another problem in upgrading is that I haven't seen mobile (laptop) gpus for sale anywhere. Only desktop gpus. THe last problem is that it is so expensive that for this much of money you can buy a desktop with 2tb ssd and a streaming setup for less than $5,000.

    If Dell / AW is the only one out there with a replaceable GPU and CPU in a laptop. Considering how HP sautered CPU's in their laptops now and just kinda plopped them on the market for 5 different categories. I don't think I would ever buy another HP laptop. Just the GPU itself being able to be swapped for a few years makes it worth the money instead of disposable. My HP laptop is 12 years old. But it's one of the few laptops that were made with a 18" screen that still works for simple things. My only fear is buying one of those laptops that lasts 3 years then stops turning on or charging. I think, Fujitsu, Toshiba and Sony hit a wall when it came from old school to 2019 technology. Then there's desktop, but good luck trying to find convienence. Apple is out of the question for reliability and ease of repairs. They are trying to make their computers worse than Dodges electronics on cars. You just can't fix em!

    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.
