  1. I get your point but I've already made up my mind on the msi gt76. that liquid metal cooling option seems cool but also increases the price as far as I can tell. and I'm barely able to afford the normal one now. I've considered buying anything less than rtx2080 during the black friday but got cucked as they kept turning down my payment for a great value laptop (msi gp65 with rtx2070 for $1500) so now I'm just not gonna settle for anything less than rtx 2080. I cant and wont get a desktop until I get settled in my own place. I move between countries every 6 months due to either school or wo
  2. now I'm thinking about this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07WWH8LC7/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza it offers so much value for its price. and some cool gifts as well just gotta wait and earn some money before I can afford it
  3. thanks for the update yea I think its an obvious choice between those 2 laptops
  4. even if its not 100+fps, at least having 60+ should be good enough, I think I'm gonna go with MSI RTX2070
  5. Hi there, months ago I was planning to buy an area 51m and I've seen some desktops with same specs for much lower price and it made me rethink I decided to spend half the money I was going to spend and I spent the day sifting through many laptops and decided on these two laptops that is the best performance for the money I'm willing to spend https://www.newegg.com/aluminum-black-msi-gp-series-gp65-leopard-9sf-240-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834155295?Item=N82E16834155295 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-i7-9750H-Keyboard-PH315-52-78VL/dp/B07QXLFLXT/ref=sr_1_10?keyw
  6. In all the videos I watched are 51m performs better in games while staying cooler. It's just weird that none of the videos mentioned what you say, are you sure this problem wasn't specific to your laptop? With a very bad luck maybe. I was kind of building up my hopes to buy area51 as it costs less than msi gt76 while performing better. I'll do some more research about what other people are unhappy about are51 I guess.
  7. But that's kind of what I'm looking for. I move between countries often(about every 6 months), but when I set my laptop somewhere it stays like that until I move again. So it is important for me to have a portable laptop and I want it to be strong. That's why I'm going for the "desktop replacement" laptops.
  8. hi all, I've been looking for a gaming laptop for myself for about 3 months now and whenever I find a new laptop I compare it with the rest of the laptops I've found and Alienware 51m always comes out on top. I just wanna confirm if area51m is really better than the rest of the options I found. you can recommend me other laptops as well. here are the options I considered: (I stayed away from the "thin" gaming laptops as I didn't wanna have troubles with cooling in the future) https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/alienware-area-51m-gaming-laptop-aw-headset/spd/
  9. Thanks for your answer, I'm glad my curiosity is over
  10. I just Google it and apparently the laptop already ships with 2666mhz Rams and people are waiting for a bios update to support xmp.
  11. Hi all, I'm planning to buy an area 51m It only comes with the option of 2400mhz Rams Would it be worth to buy higher MHz ram and replace the brand new ones?
  12. Thanks for the reply, maybe I didn't clearly state it but I'm not planning on using my laptop after buying a new laptop. I'll probably but Alienware area 51m with rtx 2080 and i7 9700k With the fan my laptop doesn't go over 80C degrees When bdo is fullscreens or minimized, Excel runs slow but when I put bdo on background(tray) the GPU usage drops down to 20% from 99% Does Excel use GPU?
