KOMMENTARE

  • But the question is why will you upgrade this thing.

  • Rgb chair in the background😂

  • Rtx 2080 ti with 6 gb of vram...... wut

  • alienware has gone f***ing insane

  • That's pretty cool. Got yourself a future customer.

  • Those who buy this are rich af Or just have a lot of money to waste.

  • Yeah, cause Intel platforms are so upgradable ROFL...

  • Close to 8M

  • Looks like they paid him to freak out. Hmm...

  • Serious question: Is there a modular laptop standard, kind of like ATX or µATX? Or is this already it?

  • I was just reading about this, so nice to be able to check it up on this channel, thanks Linus and the A team!

  • cooling system still same as ten years ago. most company just put the badass hardware in to the box. don't care users experience. especially the keyboard layout.

  • can i put a threadripper 2990XW & a RTX quadro 8000 on a 51m?? im really interesed on a laptop like that.

  • 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

  • Linus was like a Kid on Christmas on this video :D

  • Linus you dumb f... stop being a control freak and unplug the antenna cables that way i would have been easier for you to put it back in and you wouldnt have to ask em to assemble it for ya

  • Wondering why, if you are called Linus Tech Tips .. you have to ask how to disassemble a fairly obvious modular system!!

  • 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...

  • beggers wanted to ask why not goto to a dimm slot for gpu ram and a gpu socket style for the gpu

  • Oh god Linus, Be careful! Don't drop it. Lol

  • 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."

  • Dell/Alienware's site says the max GPU config is a GTX 1080. Is the RTX 2080 TI a future config?

  • is no one going to mention the RGB trackpad?

  • We want benchmarks!!! Great video yet again Linus.

  • 10:12 Really? she think this is some kind of reality show or what? hahahahahah TF clap clap clap pfgahaha

  • Conan the Barbarian

  • I checked out Dbrand, from the link in the description - they have no Nokia skins. I google 'dbrand nokia' and it comes up with a link stating Dbrand said "Nokia phones belong in the trash" well, fuck me I guess. No Dbrand skin for my phone!

  • Screw the laptop *where can I buy that rgb chair????*

  • 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.

  • Love you Linus 😍

  • We have to give dell credit on this. But I see Nivida blocking this some how Idk why but i do.

  • This is more than VR ready Does it have an PCI express slot? xD

  • How many seconds does it run at full draw?

  • Can't believe i will never be able to buy this laptop. Im sad :(

  • how can comeone so clumsy like you being professional reviewer of gadget? anyway, i still like your video. keep going.

  • wow it can upgrade plot twist : it's intel y know how it goes

  • that Alienware dude smile.... linus took it appart

  • at the low low cost of an arm and a leg

  • another bull in chinashop moment

  • it's great to see you so exited about a new product

  • 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

  • Alright...who shit on the CPU and GPU socket?

  • Nerdddddd porn M

  • Can we just talk about how ugly that thermal paste job is on the CPU?

  • Seems funny to hear a Canadian say "The bloody thing" lol

  • "And they're actually going to allow me to open this" and that was their first mistake

  • Those women back there seem to be very impressed by linus's skills and humorous charms!

  • Dell is awesome for letting you do this. This is the stuff I like to see from companies.

  • 10:12 girl behind almost started claping for Linus :)

  • Just 23000 dollar 😋😂👌

  • Its unreal the human that is Linus, love that guy

  • You keep saying desktop but you mean laptop?

  • *Finally! Alienware is back with overpriced hardware! Just what we needed*

  • You had me at upgradable

  • what? FULL 2080ti with 6GB vram???

  • wow epic laptop

  • * _Apple feeling really edgy about Right to Repair Legislation right about now_ *

  • what's with the subliminal glitch of you holding the laptop?

  • I'Dd smack you over your face if I saw you poining at motherboard components with metal screwdriver

  • I'm surprised a company let Linus take apart a prototype laptop with screws that small. Linus is already known to drop things. Is allowing him to take apart a laptop a good idea?

  • its nice to see happy excited Linus.. would be nice to see him more often...

  • I really thought at the start Linus isn't going to put this back together lol :D

  • No one? Really? 6:57 "You comin out baby? Yea you are. You want to" I lost it XD

  • wasnt there a eurocom laptop somewhere that was really nice?

  • 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.

  • Why you need to upgrade that monster Laptop desktop anyway. People must have so much money.

    • Christian Wijaya gk perlu banyak duit Tinggal nyari parts nya yang susah

    • Christian Wijaya gw ngerakit laptop tahun 2008 aw m15x pake 970m 6gb 920xm oc-ed 4ghz liquid cooling mod sama 16gb ram pake duit 8jt.

  • 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

  • that poor poor flex at the bottom left..

  • i see it 1:29 skip frame! in my 57hz refresh rate 720p hd screen using youtube vanced

  • Tightly packaging great components is of no use when you realize afterwards that the CPU is throttling down in any workload over 20%

  • Why'd you keep focusing on his balding head LOL.

  • Now I want an Alien Ware.

  • Hahaha saw that ending coming. No way he would put it back together lol

  • Can't wait for full size gpu in laptop.

  • If we also had upgradable phones

  • can you put the i9 extreme injside

  • did you say 2080 ti? really ti

  • 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.

  • Basically, it’s the opposite to a MacBook

  • 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.

  • RTX 2080 TI and 6GB GDDR6? Something is clearly not right here

  • two cheap laptops both failed in 4 years - Desktops forever!

  • ASUS won't even let people run benchmarks on their 'Mothership' laptop but Dell let Linus dismantle their machine.

  • - proprietary gpu connector (instead of available MXM3) - Intel LGA socket and chipset "Upgradeable" my ass

  • Looks like a Threadripper mounting mechanism around the intel socket.

  • Finally an Alienware worth purchasing

  • Should have asked if dbrand are going to put my laptop back together.

  • WOW, man! I hope that the screen is also upgradeable if it isn't active pen ready now. The Chuwi 2-in-1, 10.8" Tablet PC was such but degraded by its almost unusable docking keyboard case which is a pity.

  • 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.

  • I could imagine being friends with Linus, and as we're just chatting and having a normal conversation he just segues right in to a DBrand ad and then slips right back in to the topic at hand. lol

  • dell are shit, (alienware) anyone that guys it is a retard and new to computers!, HP (worst of the worst) Dell (second worst of the worst)

  • 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.

  • ...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.

  • Can't wait to play with the insides of laptops !

  • I hope you didn't really leave the Del guys hanging... 🤣 Good video!

  • Why am I watching something I couldn't buy?

  • 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.

  • Nothing screams cocaine like Linus tech

  • Am not gonna lie the entire video I was waiting for him to tell the people he was leaving and they were stuck putting it together! :D
