Impressive machine. It's about time someone worked toward what we want

I would never buy an Alienware 👽 again, I had bought a m14 r2 in the past I customize for over $2,000 and when I got it I tried to game on it but could never game cause temps got to 95 to 100 degrees Celsius throttling right away and couldn't enjoy no good games on it, I only could use as like only a regular laptop for YouTube and browsing. Now today I just bought a Sagar NP8356, I can't wait to get and try it. Hopefully I have better success to game with and do other stuff with it. This will be my 2nd gaming laptop after I had bad luck with Alienware.

If you wanted to go cheap on the graphics card (2060) could you later shove in 2080?

That employee guy is just a slave bee they send to the conference, he’s not even an engineer and he doesn’t know anything profound

What a stupid idea upgradeable laptop.

Technology improves. There’s really no point to upgrade a laptop unless its ram or storage. That’s it.

Everything else is a waste of time.

Power envelope of gpu changes.
Who makes mxm cards anymore?

It’s a noble idea but a stupid idea nevertheless

So the CPU is not TDP limited at all!?

ya this thing is an overpriced waste of money. for one nobody is going to be needing to go from a 9900 in 4 years, and that GPU is proprietary and any future new ones would have to be custom made for this particular computer, witch would probably be bloody expensive. this hardly compares to the wonderful upgradability of a desktop where i can physically take any video card out their now and in the future and put one in guranteed within the next 5 years, hell More to be honest. i could take a 10 year old tower with a pci express x16 slot and fit a new 2060 in, your telling me their will be new video cards for this laptop around then? nah, just get a new lapotp.

Lose fucking macro keys its useless and makes you lose feeling of where real keys are. Wtf its 2019 and still useless macro keys. Also oval design at the back doesnt make any sense. Besides that its pretty amazing!

I bet the temps are insane! My msi ge75 with a I7 8750 gets pretty warm. I cant imagine this beast!

Waring to anyone buying this system thinking it is an easy upgrade to a new gpu. Dell is selling this system with 3 different heat pipe setups. So if you are thinking of saving money now and getting the 2060 or 2070 and want to upgrade in the future you will need to buy a new heat pipes also. Don't forget a new power brick too. There is a 7 pipe config, 8 pipe config and a 8 pipe config with side pipes. Dell is not advertising this.

The new OverPowered line of gaming PC's from Walmart got slammed by other reviewers. While they do not sell these in Canada, we went down to US and got one to see for ourselves.
