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.

Why you need to upgrade that monster Laptop desktop anyway. People must have so much money.
krum1985 - 13 hours ago
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

Tightly packaging great components is of no use when you realize afterwards that the CPU is throttling down in any workload over 20%

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.
Damn Linus you savage, tears apart a laptop to do a breakdown, and then leaves it to be put back together by the Dell guys. Lol.

WOW, man!
I hope that the screen is also upgradeable if it isn't active pen ready now.
The Chuwi 2-in-1, 10.8" Tablet PC was such but degraded by its almost unusable docking keyboard case which is a pity.

Clevo has been doing the i9-9900k since it came out. AW is not as powerful as Clevo. Clevo has been able to be upgradable for ages too.

I could imagine being friends with Linus, and as we're just chatting and having a normal conversation he just segues right in to a DBrand ad and then slips right back in to the topic at hand. lol

Very flipping cool! I just wish it was as easy to upgrade to future CPU's as it is for GPU's. That isn't even a laptop problem though.

...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.

keep yourself grounded Linus, i know you're "Humble" with your Chevy Volt and socks and sandals but there are signs of arrogance creeping in. Keep up the good work.

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?

We've seen this before, though. Is MSI still supporting their Titan? And remember the OCZ DIY barebones laptop? I'll believe it when I see it. It's easy to say "we'll try and let you upgrade" then just, you know, not do that.

They wont allow it to upgrade, this isn't the first time they've suggested that you could drop in a new graphics card. I'm looking at you MSI.

This isnt new. In fact this is how most laptops were up-gradable before Ultrabooks were a thing. My old gateway had a Celeron. i upgraded it to p4 extreme 4ghz. Upgraded my Dell 1500 xps too. Had AMD cpu. Turion think.

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.

This is how power of influence look like! I love how I always get a gimps of the floor room personnel just standing there to watch Linus do his shooting. And than, they are to put everything back where it was, before Linus, and even repair it if Linus breaks it. This guy is such a big name on Youtube that they let him do whatever he needs to, in order to promote their products.
