Now, looking at the promises Dell made for the laptop, it hasn’t broken any promises technically. The company said that the laptop would support Intel CPUs that used the Z390 chipset, which was compatible with he 8th and 9th generation Intel CPUs that powered the Alienware Area 51m R1 laptop.

However, when the Area-51m R2 was announced the following year, it offered 10th Gen Intel CPUs and new GPUs including the RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super that were not available as upgrades for the R1.
Now, while Dell may have a way out of the initial claim that the laptop is not upgrade-able despite the promise, the suit alleges that Dell should have been aware that Intel and Nvidia’s unannounced products wouldn’t work with the laptop. It claims Dell works closely with both companies, and that it should know the specs of their products prior to them becoming public.
Dell declined to comment on the lawsuit. The customer is seeking damages, relief, and attorney’s fee for himself and other affected customers in the filing.
