    Green laptop, that is something like vaio style. I guess dell will compete with Asus "scar" laptops, good to have a choice.

    Good keyboard layout on the Alienware. It's basically the same as my 2007 Dell, which I've continued to use occasionally in part because of the great ergonomics and keyboard. It's a pity the G15 still has half-height arrow keys. Gaining a numpad isn't worth that sacrifice.

    If they ever get the keyboard layout right on a G15 successor, now that it has Ryzen and still has upgradeable memory, it would probably be my first choice for a laptop. They've got about two years until I might be considering replacing my current MSI.

    ROFL. Whoever wrote that marketing guff needs to be let go. If that's the best you can find to write about it doesn't bode well. It's like when car advertisers don't want to talk about the driving of the car, but want to major on its "uniqueness" or similar tangential aspects. You know it's probably not worth a test drive! This lappy seems to have potential, so don't detract from guff about LED dimming which we've had for a decade now.

    Good stepping stone to Ryzen 6000 series which will support USB 4
