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?

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.

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

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.

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.

...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.

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.

The i7 9900K uses (max) 95 W of power, and the 2080 Ti (desktop version) around 280 W (also max)... I don't know how much power that large 4k screen and MB need, but those will add few Watts as well. With 90 Wh battery? For how long can it work just by using it? 30 minutes in power saving mode?

I know this doesn’t have anything to do with this video, but, I have to ask because I know you can help. I have an Alienware Aurora R3 and the SATA ports are going out and I want to replace the motherboard, do you know if I can use the stock power supply with something like an ASUS motherboard? Thanks, any help would be appreciated

Lets get real for a moment. upcoming upgrades for this laptop - none. its a neat feature. but will the next intel i9-10xxx come with the 1151v3 socket or somthing else that wouldnt fit at all? and for the 2080ti. i´d be suprissed to see a successor of it in this kind of discreet laptop configuration. but never the less, holy moly ist this thing beefed up.
