    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.

    This needs to be a standard in laptops, Think of all the E-Waste that can be cut down if we had some sort of standards like this in laptops today instead of constant soldered on jobs

    this laptop is the laptop that many people wanted including me, it sucks that you can't upgrade your laptop nowadays because of the sacrifices that have been made for the thinner standards. I just don't want my graphics card and CPU soldered on to my motherboard.

  • krum1985

    now THAT is one sexy laptop =) I bought a alienware laptop 6-ish years ago, and it was the best laptop I've had (but also ridiculously expensive xD). My biggest gripe with it was the lack of upgrade-ability, so when I felt the need to upgrade, I went back to a desktop PC. This laptop is probably not for me, as I don't "game on the go" much anymore, and it probably would cost me more than a whole years worth of disposable income xD

    So this is just like the eurocom supermachines that have been out for years. Wait for the heat tests, and the wifi connector breakage issue due to heat, and the unreasonably expensive GPU upgrade options.

    This takes me back. You know this used to be quite the norm as little as 10 years ago before the overpromising and underwhelming ultrabooks obliterated the laptop market because people are into designer handbags rather than reliable and future proofed machines.

    Clevo has been doing the i9-9900k since it came out. AW is not as powerful as Clevo. Clevo has been able to be upgradable for ages too.

    Very flipping cool! I just wish it was as easy to upgrade to future CPU's as it is for GPU's. That isn't even a laptop problem though.

  • Angela Walker
    Angela Walker 3 days ago

    ...Up to a 2080ti with 6GB GDDR6? That HAS TO BE A MISTAKE at 0:50! All other sources say the top GPU will be a regular 2080 with 8GB of memory. I'd LOVE to believe in the rumor of an eventual mobile 2080ti GPU but there's no way it would ever have 6GB of VRAM. That doesn't compute. I think Linus just oopsied and nobody caught it.

    No, this is the exact opposite of crazy. This the RATIONAL way to design a laptop and in fact, they should have gone all the way and used standardized MXM GPUs.

    The i7 9900K uses (max) 95 W of power, and the 2080 Ti (desktop version) around 280 W (also max)... I don't know how much power that large 4k screen and MB need, but those will add few Watts as well. With 90 Wh battery? For how long can it work just by using it? 30 minutes in power saving mode?

    We've seen this before, though. Is MSI still supporting their Titan? And remember the OCZ DIY barebones laptop? I'll believe it when I see it. It's easy to say "we'll try and let you upgrade" then just, you know, not do that.

    This isnt new. In fact this is how most laptops were up-gradable before Ultrabooks were a thing. My old gateway had a Celeron. i upgraded it to p4 extreme 4ghz. Upgraded my Dell 1500 xps too. Had AMD cpu. Turion think.
