The Alienware Area-51m's upgradable dream has failed in just one year

  • The Verge
  • 3 weeks ago
  • Alienware has announced the second generation of its flagship Area-51m gaming laptop, the Area-51m R2.
  • It’s largely similar on the outside to the original Area-51m, but with 10th Gen Intel processors, new Nvidia GPUs, faster RAM, and better display options.
  • According to Dell, the “Area-51m R1 only supports GPU upgrades within its current generation of graphics cards.” In other words: you can upgrade to the already-available RTX 2070 and 2080 through upgrade kits but not the new RTX 2070 Super and 2080 Super options that are shipping with the Area-51m R2.
  • The Area-51m was supposed to offer the best parts of desktop gaming PCs and portable gaming laptops in a single device. Instead, with its hefty price tag and limited upgradability, it’s ended up as a series of compromises that emphasize the worst limitations of both categories.
