I have always been a PC gamer. The reason being, I have been playing every game I can for many years. I have never had a desktop, but I have always had a laptop. I have always loved the Alienware brand, and I have recently have been on a quest to find a new desktop. I have been looking at many different makes, including MSI, HP, and Alienware. After looking at a few reviews, I have found the Alienware m15 R5 to be the best gaming PC, and I am here to tell you why.

We have the newest Alienware gaming laptop for you. The m15 is based on AMD’s latest Ryzen series processors and featuring an eye-catching design, powerful performance and a stunning QHD display.

Alienware 15 R5 is one of the best gaming laptops for the price. The laptop comes with a QHD IPS screen which is the best display available on any laptop in the market. With 8GB RAM and 1TB HDD, it is a perfect choice for those who enjoy playing games. The laptop is equipped with an excellent cooling system which keeps the laptop’s components & internal parts cool.

Shortly after writing a review of the Alienware M15 R4, the Alienware m15 R5 was announced and released.  And strangely enough, there is already an R6 model!  I don’t have it yet – this article is about the R5, Dell’s first Alienware model with an AMD Ryzen processor. My first thought when I heard the announcement was: Great – better battery life! As you may recall, I liked the r4, but was very disappointed with the battery life as it didn’t use Optimus and also had a screen that consumed a lot of power.  I also didn’t like the FHD panel options, as many other models now have QHD. But this Ryzen model has all the features you need on paper.  A fast QHD screen with a good color gamut, an excellent keyboard, and potentially good battery life.  When I first heard about it, of course I wanted to order it. But a few weeks later Dell announced m15 r6 models with new Intel processors.  And recently they even announced and released their new x series.  To make matters worse, I dove deeper into the specs and saw that the r5 GPU has less power than the r4, and has less IO selection. What the hell is going on here? I bought one anyway, just to find out.  The price was reasonable, so it was worth a look.  I really liked it, but there are a few major issues that need to be resolved before anyone decides to make it their own.  Here are my thoughts on testing.

Design and construction

If you’ve read my previous review of the r4, you know that I was completely satisfied with the overall build quality.  I wish I could say the same for the r5 – but unfortunately I can’t.  The thing is, he’s not that good. Don’t get me wrong, it’s far from terrible – in fact, it’s pretty decent.  But after experiencing the r4 and owning previous Alienware laptops, I don’t think the r5 lives up to the level of quality I expected.  Let me explain. During some manipulations, I noticed squeaking sounds in the case.  Especially when I lift and lower the lid, I feel like the ring and hinge squeak a little each time.  There is also sometimes a squeaking sound when the wedge is lifted when opening. Finally, there is a point on the front edge, just below the trackpad, that I can only deform by pressing my finger on it, which causes a click. As I said, this is not at all what I expected.  And aside from these minor problems, the rest of the design is pretty good.  The entire laptop is made of a magnesium alloy (I’m absolutely sure of that), and the aesthetic design is very similar to the r4.  I like the black color Dell chose, and the addition of the black key lighting on a black background is very nice. When closed, the operation of the laptop works normally.  The only exception is if you are working on the vented end (rear edge).  Not only is it at a sharp angle, which seems awkward, but if you pick it up right after a long gaming session, you’ll probably hurt your fingers because it’s so hot! The lid has a smooth, dark finish with the number 15 embossed in the corner.  It doesn’t have the soft touch coating like the r4 model, but that’s a good thing in my opinion.  I thought it would be easier to get scratches with this coating than without.  An illuminated Alienware logo adorns the center of the cover. It is easy to lift the lid with one finger, but as mentioned, the lid is not very strong and will sag/break no matter how you adjust it.  I blame the rim, because when I squeeze it with the lid and run my fingers over it, it makes a noise and seems a little cheap.  This is especially true for the bottom part of the bezel, where it feels like you forgot to use glue when you pressed your finger on it. Under the cover is a fairly standard keyboard with a small trackpad.  We’ll come back to this later.  Above the keyboard are several vents for passive exhaust and the power button in the upper right corner.  This power button lights up and changes color depending on the battery status. This screen will be discussed in more detail later.  It is surrounded by a thin plastic frame.  The top and sides of the frame are very thin, but there’s still enough room to fit a regular webcam that also supports Windows Hello.  The bezel is noticeably thicker on the bottom, and the Alienware logo is in the middle. For I/O, starting on the left side, we have a headphone/microphone jack and an Ethernet port.  There are only two USB-A ports on the right side.  Not much, because the rest is on the back edge.  Here you’ll see a power port, an HDMI port, another USB-A port, and a USB-C port.  And all this with a lot of empty space in between. It’s a decent amount of OI, but it’s very disappointing to have none compared to the previous revision.  Apparently they are making the m15 a cheaper model and saving the extra IO for their Aleinware x series model. But if you look at these laptops, *all* the I/Os are on the back, which seems odd to me.  Well, not everything: the power jack is in the left corner and the headphone jack is on the right (also strange).  Looking at the X series, I think this IO scheme is better. What was missing before was the Alienware Graphics Amplifier.  Dell attributes this to the fact that it doesn’t make much sense to put 3000-series graphics cards in an enclosure.  I’ll take their word for it, but I’m sure many people will be upset by this decision, especially if they’ve recently purchased an amp. Also missing is an SD card reader, a MiniDP port and an additional USB-A port on the left side.  It’s a disgrace. The leading edge is smooth, which is also a difference with the r4.  The only thing missing from this model are the cutouts for the 4-way speakers.  Instead, they opted for downward-facing speakers, which seems odd to me. There’s nothing special about the fabric.  There are plenty of vents and the legs are high enough for air circulation.  The design of the cell is quite unique to this brand, and in my opinion, it is very nice. To summarize: It’s not my favorite Alienware design.  I could live with that if I had to, but for the price you pay, I don’t think that’s a valid argument.  That said, this 55 has some features that are much better than the r4 model I’m about to adopt, and more than make up for the changes in design and manufacturing.  So don’t panic yet.

Keyboard and touch pad

Alienware offers two keyboard options for this model – with and without Cherry MX mechanical switches.  I decided to try the Cherry switches and I’m very glad I did.  I can sum it up in one word: fantastic! This might be the best laptop keyboard I’ve ever typed on.  The keyboard not only has a good penetration depth of 1.8 mm, but also a very good keystroke and sufficient pressure feedback. If I had to describe the feeling, I would say it is similar to the tapping of better scissor switches, but the stability is better and there is also a mechanical click.  And the click isn’t even that loud, as it’s quieter than other mechanical laptop keys I’ve seen, such as… For example, the Razer Blade, the Acer Triton and the Overpowered 15. Of course, it’s not necessarily the perfect keyboard.  Why would they do that? ? ??? There is one aspect of the new Alienware laptops (including the r5, r6 and x series) that will probably bother you.  For some stupid reason,they decided not to mark the secondary features….. to stop marking them. And to make matters worse, the letters are dark gray on the black keys, so you can’t see them at night. Fortunately, the keyboard layout is very familiar, so most secondary functions come naturally if you type a lot and know where they are.  But if you’re looking for punctuation, you’ll have a hard time using it at night. For me, it was the multimedia features of the F-Series.  I found it difficult to find the buttons to change the brightness of the screen, and PrintScreen was also difficult to find.  The only solution I could think of was to change the color of these keys to a different color than the teal color I had used for the entire keyboard. Crude, but it worked. The trackpad is the same size as the previous model: very small.  In any case, it’s crystal clear and it works pretty well.  It’s a touchpad, so when you click on the corners, you get a right or left click. I didn’t like the trackpad on my r4 model because it was loose and too easy to press down.  That is not the case here.  However, I would caution you that I think this is still a potential quality control issue, as other reviews mention that this problem persists. It would be nice to have a larger trackpad, but that’s not feasible due to the space the vents take up.  I don’t think hardcore gamers will complain about it, but if you plan on being very productive with the trackpad, you better look elsewhere.

Screen

The screen on this model is excellent.  It is an IPS panel with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 px, manufactured by LG, with a refresh rate of 240 Hz.  The image is clear even at extreme viewing angles, and my panel was hardly blinded by the backlight. What makes this panel so special is that it is bright and has a wide range of colors.  The only thing that could have been slightly better is the black level, which is a bit light and gives a contrast ratio of less than 1000:1. I did some measurements with my X-rite i1 Display Pro sensor and got the following result:

  • Hardware ID panel : LG Phillips 156QHG (LGD0690);
  • Coverage: 141% sRGB, 100% DCI-P3, 97% AdobeRGB ;
  • Measured Gamma : 2.2 ;
  • Maximum brightness in the center of the screen: 375 cd/m2 at startup;
  • Contrast at maximum brightness : 902:1
  • Aboriginal White Point: 6670 K ;
  • Black at maximum brightness: 0.41 cd/m2.

Note that the screen was already pretty well calibrated out of the box, so there is no need to use this tool unless you plan to use it for professional work. This is an excellent panel to combine with this material.  To be honest, after trying the Asus Zephyrus G15, I was looking for the right screen.  In fact, this panel is superior to the G15 because it is brighter and faster. After using this panel for a few weeks, I am still impressed and would definitely recommend this panel for any gaming laptop.  The games looked great and the high frame rate made the experience very smooth.  Kudos to Alienware for finally choosing panels that make their models shine.

Equipment and power

This Alienware m15 is something special, as it is the first Alienware from Dell to be powered by an AMD processor.  It’s powered by the Ryzen R7 5800H, an octa-core processor that runs at 4.4GHz for long periods of time. This model also includes the Nvidia RTX 3070 laptop, which contains 8GB of GDDR6 video memory, which is more than enough for any game that uses QHD graphics.  The THP of this variant is 115W, with dynamic gain up to +10W. This is another point of inferiority to the r4, as that unit was able to get up to 144 watts in my tests.  However, due to the lack of steam chamber cooling, this is not possible with this model. Moreover, this model is equipped with 16 GB of RAM memory that operates in dual-channel mode at 3200 MHz. These modules are not welded and can be retrofitted on request.  Finally an improvement over the r4 model. 🙂 The SSD used is the Samsung PM991a 512GB, which is pretty solid and power efficient.  See my CrystalDiskMark test for the exact speeds I recorded.  The drive has a Pcie gen 3 x4 interface, in case you were wondering.  It takes up one of the two available slots on the motherboard. Speaking of which, if you absolutely need a second SSD, be prepared to order the extra part from Dell.  In the current configuration, there is no way to add a second 80mm SSD without using an adapter.  I think you can glue them, but I wouldn’t recommend it as a long term solution. In fact, you can’t even replace your current SSD with an 80mm drive.  The SSD that came with my laptop is half the size and has a special bracket that attaches it to the motherboard.  So if you want to use two of your own disks, order two. I don’t know what Dell was thinking.  Seriously, though: The coin you need should cost 50 cents, and it’s certainly not worth pissing off your customers.  I hope they rectify this in the near future.  But I doubt they will. I ran some synthetic tests.  There was no OC setting, and the performance profile didn’t seem to do anything, so I just left it on High Performance.  Here are my results:

  • 3DMark 13 – Firestrike: 21677 (Graphics – 24253, Physics – 22981) ;
  • 3DMark 13 – Time Spy : 10231 (Graphics – 9689, CPU – 8409);
  • 3DMark 13 – Port Royal (RTX) Graphics : 5562 ;
  • Uniengine Overlay – 1080p Extreme: 6018
  • Uniengine Overlay – Medium 1080p : 17573 ;
  • GeekBench 5: Mononuclear: 1385, multi-core: 7096 ;
  • CineBench R15: OpenGL 132.53 fps, CPU 1857 cb, Single Core CPU 215 cb ;
  • CineBench R23: CPU 11454 pts, Single Core CPU 1357 pts;

And here are the results of the Cinebench R15 Multi-Core Cyclic test, alongside some similar platforms. Good performance, but about 105 less than other 5800H laptops we’ve tested, and that’s because this laptop’s processor doesn’t run at a very high sustained power level. I’ll come back to thermal performance later, but for now let’s just say it’s best to turn off boost on this processor.  Here are my results with the boost turned off:

  • 3DMark 13 – Firestrike: 20849 (Graphics – 24307, Physics – 19877) ;
  • 3DMark 13 – Time Spy : 9383 (Graphics – 9752, CPU – 7729) ;
  • 3DMark 13 – Port Royal (RTX) Graphics : 5609 ;
  • Uniengine Overlay – 1080p Extreme: 6032
  • Uniengine Overlay – Medium 1080p : 17185 ;
  • GeekBench 5: Mononuclear: 1057, multi-core: 6392 ;
  • CineBench R15: OpenGL 111.13 fps, CPU 1724 cb, Single Core CPU 165 cb ;
  • CineBench R23: CPU 10379 pt, Single Core CPU 1014 pt ;

So yeah, these results are pretty good whether you turn on the amplification or not.  But what is strange is that there are no OC institutions yet.  I say so far because I recently received an update that changed the OC module from NA to off.  My frequencies haven’t changed, but maybe that’s a sign of an upcoming update? Some results seemed weak to me, like. B. Port Royal.  Below you can find more information. Here are some of the tests I did with the games.  I ran all the tests with CPU acceleration enabled.

FHD QHD
Battlefield V (DX 12, Ultra Preset, Ray Tracing OFF) 117 fps medium, 105 fps low 98 fps medium, 93 fps low
Battlefield V (DX 12, Ultra preset, ray tracing enabled) 71 fps on average, 60 fps on the low end. 52 frames per second average, 46 frames per second bottom.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (DX 11, Ultra preset, Highworx on) 91 fps medium, 86 fps low 75 fps average, 71 fps low
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (DX 11, Ultra preset, Highworx off) 109 frames per second average, 104 frames per second on the low side. 85 fps average, 79 fps low
Horizon Zero Dawn (Ultra) 95 fps medium, 85 fps low 65 fps medium, 61 fps low
Cyberpunk (Ultra, Ray Tracing enabled, DLSS Auto) 57 frames per second medium, low 50 frames per second 53 fps medium, 45 fps low
Cyberpunk (Ultra, Raytracing enabled, DLSS disabled) 39 fps average, 35 fps low 23 fps medium, 20 fps low
Cyberpunk (Ultra, Raytracing out, DLSS out) 76 fps average, 68 fps low 58 frames per second in Medium mode, 45 frames per second in Low mode
Valheim (high position) 75 frames per second in the middle range, 67 frames per second in the low range. 65 fps medium, 55 fps low

These are good results.  But if you look closely, they’re not much higher than the thinner 3070 laptops that run on 80W + dynamic load.  For example, these results are only 5-10% better than what I got with the Asus Zephyrus G15. However, these results are significantly lower than what I got with the Alienware m15 r4 version.  In all cases, including synthetic benchmarks, r4 performed 10-20% better than r5.  I’ll discuss the pros and cons of both models at the end, but if performance is important to you, the r4 clearly seems like the better buy. So what is it?  At first I thought it was because of the lower performance limit they put on the GPU.  But a few days before I finished this review, Andrew pointed me to a post on Reddit about a serious problem.  It appears that vBios is only using 90% of the CUDA cores on this GPU. What? So what does that mean?  At first I wasn’t sure what to do, but when I finished my report, Dell apparently made an announcement.  It looks like this is a bug and a new version of vBios will be updated and released later this month.  If not in the next two days, the above results are what I can report.  If so, expect a 5-10% improvement over the above when they fix the BIOS. Some people in this thread on Reddit were able to flash vBios r4 and get better performance, which clearly shows that the GPU suffers from this vBios.  However, I don’t recommend doing this now – wait for an official update from Dell instead.

Advanced Optimus

The last part I want to talk about is the Advanced Optimus, and I can tell you that it needs a serious overhaul. In the first two days of using this laptop, I ran into the problem of the screen freezing and programs running on the iGPU instead of the 3070. Eventually I got tired of it and disabled it in the Nvidia control panel.  Switching to the Nvidia GPU solved all my freezing issues, which is great.  But in this mode, the battery dies.  Returning to the iGPU, if necessary, is fairly simple.  The hardest part is remembering. The activation of Advanced Optimus is not always successful.  I can’t even explain why, but sometimes the option to enable automatic graphics switching was completely disabled.  I finally got it to work, but after another gel or two, I turned it off again.  Too much interference… I don’t know what to say about this, since the alternative is the old Optimus, which is known to limit performance with dGPU.  And Optimus is not owned by Dell, so I can’t blame them.  However, other manufacturers, such as Asus and Lenovo, have decided not to use Advanced Optimus in some of their gaming models, and this could be the reason.

Noise, heat, communication, loudspeakers and other

The cooling system is again a decline from the r4 and r5.  Instead of the steam room system used in the past, we now have standard heating pipes.  And on top of that, the motherboard is upside down.  This is not a good idea. In normal use, the laptop remains quite cold for a short period of time.  If the thermostat is set to Balanced, the fans will stay off normally, but will come on as the temperature rises.  The temperature of the CPU in this case remains at about 70 degrees. But over time, heat begins to penetrate the system, causing the area under the hood to become quite hot.  This can be corrected, for example, by using a different fan profile. B. by setting the offset to 10%.  This forces the fans to run continuously at 10% and then ramp up as usual. The weakness of this cooling solution becomes very apparent in games.  That and the combination of the fact that this Ryzen processor gets very hot in boost mode.  In almost all of my gaming tests, the processor often exceeded its thermal limits, with temperatures up to 103°C! My main game to test was Horizon Zero Dawn, which freely uses the CPU and GPU to a great extent without using Dynamic Boost.  The result: With CPU acceleration enabled, the average CPU temperature was 100°C and the GPU temperature was 80°C. You’d think full fans would help, but they don’t.  Even at full load, the average processor temperature dropped only a few tenths of a degree, while the GPU temperature dropped to an average of 78°C. Since lowering the voltage is not possible on AMD processors and Dell has not enabled options to lower the processor’s TDP, the only alternative is to disable Turbo Boost completely.  There are tutorials on youtube on how to do this, which requires a little tweaking of the registry.  I highly recommend doing this if you are considering buying this car. In the same game, the CPU temperature dropped to an average of 87°C and the GPU temperature dropped to an average of 77°C after turbo acceleration was disabled.  Fortunately, there was no significant impact on game performance either. After retesting the games, I didn’t notice a significant drop in performance when I turned off the turbo.  Maybe 1-4 fps in some games, but most games haven’t changed.  So that’s a good thing, to say the least. But still… I had this problem with the Asus G15, but I was sure this laptop would have enough cooling to keep the temperature under control.  At least it’s bigger.  But to my surprise, these temperatures are much worse.  Did we forget to use thermal paste? Now, for the fans.  The fans are never turned on during light duty.  They light up intermittently when working hard, but go out quickly when it gets colder.  In a quiet room with the fans on, I measured a noise level of about 35 dB at ear level. Fans make a lot of noise in games, and it doesn’t help if you have Boost enabled on the CPU.  Expect a noise level of 53 dB, as the processor always reaches 100 °C when the temperature increase function is activated.  Disabling this feature is useful for many games, and in some sessions the fan noise was reduced to 50 dB.  If you’re the kind of person who puts the fans on full blast while you play, that’s 65 dB at ear level. Either way, it’s a pretty noisy cooling system.  If the processor temperature was better controlled, these fans would be much quieter. I measured the surface temperature while surfing the web/watching a series on Netflix, and then again while playing a game.  The temperature was quite warm by normal standards.  However, the temperature of the games has become very high.  I highly recommend using a side table when playing on your knees.   *Daily use – watching Netflix on EDGE for 30 minutes, silent profile, fan set to 0-35dB *Games – Cyberpunk for 30 minutes, fan set to 50-53dB There is a Killer AX1650W module for this device which provides a pretty good wifi connection.  I achieved speeds of 378 Mbps at a distance of 30 meters from the router and had no interruptions.  I’ve seen better, but it’s still very good.  It also features Bluetooth 5.1 technology. The speakers are good, but I wish they had kept the 4-way speakers that were in the r4.  The point is that these speakers sounded better, mainly because they were forward and downward facing, not just downward like this unit.  They were 4 watt speakers, but these speakers are only 2 watts each. Expect 72 dB at best and low frequencies up to 140 Hz before they start to fade.  The sound is at least decent, as the mids seem to be well tuned (at least for me). At the top of the screen is an HD webcam.  It also includes Windows Hello, which unlocks your computer as soon as you turn it on.  Add to that the fact that the device turns on when you open the lid, and the transition from closed laptop to desktop is literally a one-finger operation.  I love it.

Battery life

The Alienware m15 R5 comes with the same 86 Wh battery as the R4, but this time Dell has done it right and enabled Advanced Optimus for this configuration. Here is the result on my laptop with the screen set to 30% brightness, or about 76 nits.

  • 9.8 W (~8 hrs 47 min of use) – Sleep mode, best battery life, screen set to 0%, Wi-Fi on, backlight off ;
  • 16.0 W (~5 hr 37 min usage) – texting with low internet usage, extended battery mode, screen set to 30%, Wi-Fi enabled ;
  • 13.99W (~6 hrs 9 min usage) – Full screen 1080p Youtube in Chrome, Enhanced battery mode, 30% screen setting, Wi-Fi enabled ;
  • 12.1 W (~7 hrs 9 min usage) – Disney+ 1080p full screen video in Chrome, enhanced battery mode, 30% screen setting, Wi-Fi enabled ;
  • 19.3 W (~4 hrs 38 min of use) – Web browsing in Chrome, advanced power mode, screen set to 30%, Wi-Fi enabled ;
  • 51.2W (~1h 23 min usage) – Games – Witcher 3, max power mode, 60fps, 30% screen, Wi-Fi enabled.

I’m glad they decided to put Optimus in this one, even if it is a little weird.  Battery life is very good, and that’s thanks to the Ryzen processor, which runs at a fairly low voltage for low demands.  The battery life of over 5 hours at the time of writing is very good for a gaming laptop. The power supply is 240W, which is more than enough to power the CPU and GPU.  It is quite thin, but wide and long, just like the R4.  It’s not an ideal charger to carry in my pocket, and I would definitely prefer something smaller, especially since they limit the TGP.

Price and availability

The model I bought is not yet available on Amazon (maybe later, by the time you read this article), but it is available on dell.com.  The price of this model starts at $1899, but count on another $100-200 if you want a QHD screen and Cherry MX switches. You can also buy other GPU options like B. the 3050 for $1299 and the 3060 for $1599.  If I were looking for a better option at this price, I would consider the 3060 with the QHD screen. If r5 doesn’t work for you, maybe r4 will.  In my opinion it has a better build quality.  It also has a higher TGP, more I/O and better cooling. What’s missing, however, is battery life (unless you find an Optimus model), cherry switches, and the lack of a QHD option.  A tough choice, but if you’re interested, you can find some models here on Amazon.

Final thoughts

I had high hopes for this model and I’m a little disappointed.  On paper, the Alienware m15 r5 has corrected three shortcomings I saw with the r4, namely the terrible battery life, the scratchy cover and the built-in RAM.  These problems have disappeared, but arguably more serious problems have taken their place. The extremely high processor temperature was the biggest problem for me.  Until I discovered that the GPU was not using all of its CUDA cores.  In my opinion, this is a questionable practice, as I wonder if it was done intentionally to lure people to the recently released x series laptops. Also the drop in GPU’s TGP compared to the r4 is a real disappointment.  Maybe it’s because they don’t use steam rooms anymore, but even that’s a strange move.  Why did they take him?  There is still hope that they can partially fix this GPU problem in a future BIOS, but that will take time and the temperature will probably be high (it’s already 80C!). The reduction in IO is another thing I’m a little confused about.  There is so much room for IO on the sides and back that I see no excuse here.  And the speakers got worse and worse.  Small, yes, but seriously, why? After all, this is a decent gaming laptop.  But the overall value is not the same – especially when compared to the r4 model.  I think Dell made a mistake in this case. But I can’t ignore the benefits of this model.  The Ryzen processor is a great option, as the battery life and performance are very good.  The keyboard is phenomenal too!  I would like to take this keyboard seriously and install it on another laptop model.  Except that the keys are not fully illuminated – but seriously, I could probably live with that. I can’t say I recommend this laptop, but if you’re determined to buy a new Alienware, do some thorough research and see what the pros and cons are of each of the available models.  The fact is that four 15-inch Alienware models have been released since January 2021: the r4, r5, r6 and x15 r1. If you are looking for an alternative, there are many other options.  If you think these specs are good enough, but you want something thinner, the Asus Zephyrus G15 might be a better buy.  Not only is it cheaper, but it’s thinner, lighter, has better speakers and better cooling. But if you’re looking for something more powerful, the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro might be worth a look.  It’s almost as big and as expensive, but has a 16-inch screen, a more powerful GPU and better cooling.  I have one in my hands now and I can already tell that the value is much higher.  Stay tuned and read my review of this product. I hope this helps you make an informed decision.  Negative or not, I’m just trying to tell it like it is.  I’ll have this unit for a while, so if you have any questions, let me know.
