Alienware Area-51 R2: Upgrade/Replace Video Card
Background and Identification
The Alienware Area-51m is a 17-inch gaming laptop released by Alienware in 2019. This device has a Gen Intel Core processor, an NVIDIA RTX 2080 graphics card, and an advanced cooling system which includes a copper heat sink assembly, two air intakes, and two exhaust outlets.
On the right side of the computer there are two USB 3.1 ports. On the left there is another USB 3.1 port, a jack for the headphones and microphone, and a Thunderbolt 3 port. The back holds two DC jacks, an HDMI 2.0 port, a Gigabit Ethernet jack, and a mini DisplayPort.
This device advertises its CPU and GPU upgradability, almost making it sound like they want you to open it up and make your own modifications. This device supports a maximum of 64 GB of memory. A common complaint is the lack of a 4K display option.
The Alienware Area-51m is available in Lunar Light (white) and Dark Side of the Moon (black). It comes with a limited one year warranty.
