Alienware’s Area-51m is a gaming monster that tackles some of the biggest problems with overkill laptops. It’s the first laptop from Alienware to use desktop components, so you can swap out the storage, RAM, CPU, and GPU for newer guts in a few years, even if it takes a while to disassemble. But how much value does this upgradability add to the computer? Considering that it starts at a hefty $2,150… it’s an important question to consider. Here’s what you need to know, and check out our story/bio for more:
