So I am thinking of getting the alienware 15(http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/alienware-15/spd/alienware-15-laptop/dkcwkblf002s) over the helios 300 because someone told me that I can swap out the GPU and the CPU in that model (and it is supposed to have a lot better cooling)
Could someone please tell me if this model (http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/alienware-15/spd/alienware-15-laptop/dkcwkblf002s) of the alienware has a swapable GPU and/or CPU?

The GPU is almost everytime soldered to the MOBO. In some cases the CPU is swapable.
You should check YT searching the CPU changing o the total dissasembly.

Extra: upgrading old laptops void guaranty and is no fully recommended for compatibility.
