Yeah I feel more than a bit foolish that I didnt realize the SSD was an M2 drive.

The boot time was not something I had noticed until the question but without a doubt it is significantly faster than my previous SSD.

For Monitors I have these Acer H236HL monitors (now 2 of them).  They fit together seemlinessly and I like them plus they are cheap $130 ea at BestBuy/Amazon etc.
Here is a review and it is very popular on Amazon

As for bloatware I dont really have a benchmark to go by but my impression on the Alienware is that it is pretty minimal.  I am still struggling with learning the new Windows 10 interface (and i am not a big fan of tiles etc) so I deleted just about all of them.  Other programs seem a reasonable amount nothing that stood out as bloatware to my eye.

People seem to still be in panic mode. As soon as a Truck arrives and we stock the shelves at WinnDixie it's gone. We've been bring daily trucks in (normal is 3 a week). Gas is still probmatic. I drove down to walmart-who was closed 3 days--and they've yet begun to restock. Stopped at McDonald's and the only thing you could get was a quarter pounder and fries...nothing else. Not even a cherry pie.

I'm in beverly hills- just south of crystal River--these are small...very small towns spread out 10 to 15 miles a part-- maybe a grocery store and a gas station in each---The largest town would be Ocala--even that is kinda small but they do have a footlocker so you can buy a decent pair of shoes-- that's a 30 mile run.

I'm not sure the White House is equivocating the Juggalos with "very fine people" the way they did the Nazis.

Portland replaced Columbus Day with "Indigenous Peoples Day."   As you read you will discover that Columbus was a murderer, rapist, robber and all sorts of bad.

This city is tough to live in for many reasons.
