Probably a BGA book but still pretty cool to see 18" make a comeback.

Wouldn't be surprised to also see an MSI GT88, a Dell 7880 or a Zbook 18.

BGA means skinny little runaround and that means NOT upgradable, they are missing the mark again!

Upgradability has mostly become a tease - just look at the last Clevo notebooks with sockets - no upgrades possible for the last 17.3" and the two last 15.6" laptops.

I still welcome the serviceability with potentially cheaper repairs and the chance to go for the highest possible CPU with a lesser GPU but there isn't something like a real upgradability any more.

 

As for being skinny I think this is a given and I resent it almost as much as the BGA build.

There is a very good chance that it will be 16:10 and slipped inside a 17" chassis.

 

And yes, I think we all have to give up on the upgradeable laptop era, it ain't coming back.

I think I will get this day 1. 
 

upgradable laptops are pretty much dead, not even Clevo has MXM anymore most likely next year. 
 

I really hope this has a 4k display option (mini led or oled) and I hope they include a subwoofer because their 17” model audio is lacking without one. 
 

Hope we get some more details soon.

 One could get the impression that you kind of like Alienware laptops 😉

Indeed truly intergenerational upgrades seem to be a thing of the past as even in cases where the hardware would easily support it for CPUs neither Clevo nor Dell have come through for us.

 

Not sure about the panel as so far only a 2560 x 1600 panel has popped up (and that would be my preference) but I would expect that we will see both that resolution and a 3840 x 2400 option. Maybe not right from the start but if 18" catches on.

Oh, this could potentially be interesting.

Assuming that Dell's Precision 7x80 will most likely be the same disappointment as this year's models, I'm thinking this might be a good "sturdy and powerful workhorse" alternative  :classic_blush:

Serenity                    -> Dell Precision 7560
Millenium Falcon    -> Dell Precision 5530
Axiom                        -> Lenovo ThinkPad P52 (work)
Moldy Crow             -> Dell XPS 15 9550

Spoiler

Millenium Falcon: Dell Precision 5530

There is zero chance it will be anything but a pure BGA laptop. I hope I'm wrong but I don't see Dell flipping the script at this stage.
