After some serious research I finally ordered my AW laptop!!!

But I fell for the up sell on the RAM, knowing that it would be overkill... Excited about the MSata drive!

Specs below

Processor

Toetsenbord

Harde schijf

Joined the forum and hope to share the good and the not so good with some fellow AW owners
Woohoo

Congrats on the purchase. 16GB isn't that much overkill. :) Let us know when you get it.

Congrats on your purchase. I really want an M14x now. Maybe I will win the next raffle.
And I agree with Tommy, 16GB is not overkill.

Well got the mouse and AW headset today, walked around with the headset and mic extended irritating my wife ;) with new call signs. According to the website before the 31st although order was placed 11th.

Another question recommendation on cooling pad for M14x. I live in a hot climate and apparently the AW have a tendency to run hot? Yes or No and can you guys recommend one. Looked at the Logitech N120 which is available we're I am and the Belken one.

I got the cooler master u3. It has 3 movable fans, so you can place them directly under the laptop fans. i like the fact that it does not need an external poer supply. and if you decide to travel with your laptop, the cooling pad can be used as a lid protector.

Yea your definetly going to need a cooling stand if your living in Africa without AC.
I would go with something like yikes suggested (moveable fans) I currently have a CM U3 on order.
Thanks for the tip yikes :cool:

Yeah really happy with my order! Just can't wait anymore, logging into the delivery status every 5 minutes to see if its changed! Still under production :(

Thanks for the info on cooling pad, found an outlet that stocks CM so hopefully will have the U3 in stock or can order it.

Super excited, can't wait to start gaming again!
