Alienware 17 R2 2015; This laptop should come with a 230W AC adapter, not 180 watts. Throttles immensely.

@lilw, invalid link but this is correct (deleted part of the url you posted); http://www.ideastorm.com/Idea2ReadIdea?Id=087700000009mDXAAY
"2015 Alienware R2 17" Laptop Heat Fix, Here is how."

That is not having to do with the 180W AC adapter. Just better fan speed profiles (which is a good idea too). I also am all for CPU overclocking without needing the Graphics Amplifier installed.


Alienware 15 bios supporting both 240 watt as well as 180 watt solutions, and custom fan profile selection

Actually that idea is just pertaining to the fan profiles and i've made this new thread to request power options (180 watt and 240 watt) so that hybrid power is disabled on 240 watt PSUs , saving battery while also lifting the 36 watt TDP cap on the CPU which u can find is a problem for every customer... 
I am upvoting the linked idea , please upvote this idea as well :)

Yes I'm trying to work with Dell to release the unlocked Bios.  Even though Alienware 18 has been discontinued they should still release Unlocked/Unprotected Bios to public with VT-d and other features available.  I have warranty on this laptop and need it fully functioning.

At the moment it is just a giant brick and the weight and functionality does not justify until the Bios is corrected and unlocked and full advanced menus to enable Fan control, CPU control, Vt-x and Vt-d for I/O.

Leave your comments and hopefully they will listen.

Did you look up the laptop I mentioned? The Yoga is a lower-end laptop, actually.
i7-5600u vs. i7-5500u
16GB RAM vs. 8GB RAM
512GB SSD vs. 256GB SSD.

If you're desperate for the oversized two-in-one, look at the Inspiron 15 7000 2-in-1. It is bulkier and heavier, but big 2-in-1's are always bulkier and heavier.
