GPU : 32

Load Temps

CPU : 65

Im very very happy with the results as you can expect :)

 


I almost ordered a new 13" today, but the price difference between the 13 and the 15 was minimal (less than $150), and the 1070 with 8GB card plus i7-6820HK were the dealbreaker for me.... The OLED monitor was very tempting, but I've seen those touch screens before and they are super shiny, so I ended up ordering the 15"..... I hope I don't regret it, I wanted maximum portability, but was really hoping the price of the 13" (with awesome specs) would have been a lot cheaper than the 15.

Don't forget that the 13 opens clear up to lay flat.

Also dont forget, the 15" is no small thing. Its an absolute beast for a 15" I honestly looked at the label to make sure i didn't receive a 17" Its slimmer than the old 15"s sure, but boy.. its square when looking at it from above..


I honestly woke up with regret, and after reading this, I will be calling today to swap it for the 13" model. Thanks!


even razer came up with gtx1080, come on alienware, it is time to release those juicy gtx 1080 ones

It's done... I swapped my order and got the 13" with the 1060 card. The reviews so far are loving it!!! I have to wait until the end of Nov / beginning of Dec. to get it! :-(

The wait always seems like forever, when that truck pulls up i get goosebumps.
