    first of all that area 51m wont be upgradable at all honestly, if youre already on 9th gen intel what are you going to upgrade to in the future? nothing because itll be a new chipset so have fun with that lol

  • VinayKanthRao Kodipelly

    Here is my experience with the Area 51m and Dell customer service. I bought it from HIDEvolution on Amazon. They apparently tell us that "It is rare for a product that we have quality checked to fail so quickly, but it does happen from time to time." They are of no help either so far.
    Update: I posted the same review on Dell's website and I received an email that my review is against their guidelines. So they cannot publish my review on their website. I did not use any vulgar language or gave any inaccurate information. Tactically, they sent me the email to which I cannot reply. I am going to call them up and ask which part of my review is against their guidelines. They simply don't want us to put negativity be reviews. If they moderating what reviews we are supposed to put, what's the point in having such an option? No wonder they only have positive reviews for this laptop on the Dell's website.
    My model: i7-9700k, RTX 2070, 16GB RAM
    If you are planning to do some serious work on your laptop. I would suggest stay away with this Area 51m. It is still in the first generation and I can see there are too many defects with this model. I am a doctoral candidate in mathematics education and bought this laptop a month ago thinking it will be perfect to render my video lectures, animation, and also might as well finish writing my thesis on it. I don't play a lot of games. The laptop was faulty from the day I received it. I had to reinstall Windows 10 to make it work. Now a week ago there are artifacts appearing on the laptop screen. I thought it is a driver's issue and updated it. It didn't help. I cannot even get into the windows desktop as all I can see a black screen and weird artifacts after login. I bought premium support from Alienware and contacted them via email. I told them how important this laptop for my academics but they didn't reply promptly. Their responses are days apart. They gave a set of tests to run to make sure it's not a big issue. They are just waiting time as after all those tests, it is apparent that I had a faulty GPU. I gave up and called the customer care and told them the issue and updated with run tests. Then they created a job order where I had to send the laptop to their repair center. I paid for premium support so there is a In-home repair service but they did not listen to this at all. They said there is no other option but to send the laptop to their facility. They promised me that end to end service time will be less than 5 business days. After four days, I received an email saying that there are some failed parts in the laptop and they don't have those parts right now, those parts MAY arrive in five business days. They have no idea how it is affecting my academics. I relied on this thinking it is a powerful computer. They are ignoring customers suffering because they will have to answer for packing defective parts. I searched Reddit and other forums only to be surprised that I am not the only victim here.
    The bottom line is : buy this laptop at your own risk and don't rely on this for serious works. If you badly thinking to buy this laptop, I would wait for the next generation of this model so that they will have some time to understand customers sufferings and ensures not to pack defective parts.
    Another update: I received an email saying that they may get a hold of new parts in another 4 days and if the laptop still has an issue after replacement, they are going to extend the repair time to another 10 business days. I spent more than three thousand dollars on this laptop thinking it will help with my doctoral projects. I had to spend more time in the repairing than actually work on my academics.
    It has been 12 days and they still have no idea when the parts will be available. They just stopped replying my email.
    This is completely my personal thoughts coming from my experiences and readings on online forums about the product.

    Which Laptop Has These Features?

    • Windows 10 Pro
    • Convertible 2-in-1
    • Maximum Weight of 2.8 - 3.0 Pounds
    • 13-14 Inch 1440p And Higher With IPS Display (1080p Would Be Okay)
    • Intel i5 OR i7-8565U (Whiskey-lake)
    • 8GB RAM or Higher
    • 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD or Higher
    • Dedicated Graphics (Intel / Nvidia GTX / AMD RX / AMD VEGA)
    • At Least One Thunderbolt 3
    • Microsoft Precision Touchpad With Macbook Keyboard Layout
    • 8-10 Hours of Battery Life
    • Between $999 - $1099

    BTW I’d Recommend HP Spectre X360 13-T (@ $1049.99) And Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) (@ $1079.99) As They Probably Meet All Of The Above Listed Specs.
    However, If You Got More Budget Around $1500 Then Dell XPS 13 9380 Touch Laptop (2019) (@ $1499.99) Would Be A Great Option.

    Hey Dave, you mentioned the Samsung Notebook Odyssey. I really want this laptop. Yes, it is ugly but specification wise it's on par with the other laptops you described in the video. I want this because it links with my Samsung Cloud and keeps my phone and tablet backed up on it. Also the RTX 2080, 16-32GB of ram, and upgradable storage options are awesome for video editing which is what I need.

    Hi. I like your vids. I am an architecture student. I kind of need a everything. Ram for editing and using lots of programmes. Good graphics card for rendering. (Sometimes I need to play games for de-stress.) Long battery life. Fabulous color screen. also for art i do. I also want Japanese signs not to be pixelated on the screen. yuk!) Light weight. And i also like design. I cannot decide and I dont want to pay a sh**load of money. (Maybe have to tho). Which one would you recommend? ThX

    I might be stupid but i actually want to go over to gaming laptop and wanted for years but the prices seems like double so much as a desktop you build yourself. I have a desktop PC with msi gtx 1080 gaming X, i7 6700k, 16GB ram.
    I could consider paying 2000$ is there a equal good or better laptop at that price?

    What about the Lenovo Y740? For $2k you get RTX 2060, 32GB RAM, i7-8750H, 256GB SSD M.2 PCIe-NVMe,
    a 1TB 7200 rpm drive. I think thrre is Thunderbolt 3 when you outgrow the RTX 2060. Seems like the extra $400 you spend on the 2070 isnt wotth it.
