    How is your Aero 15X holding up any issue?

    I would say not worth it to upgrade if you already have one.

    Anyone have pictures of this thing stacked on top of a XPS 15?

    There's the occasional keyboard chatter. That might be it really. The new CPU does not seem like it would have any advantage for anything I do, and I did want the 4k screen but forgot that they do draw more power. Strangely the only thing that seems like a worthwhile upgrade is if the revised keyboard types any better.

    Yeah, same. A little bit of chatter which I have a soft fix for. I love how they haven't even fixed the backlight on the right shift key. Also, that new logo is horrific.

    I don’t think the new logo is bad at all. Seems like they fixed the keyboard. How’s the trackpad since they kind of dodge that question At the new launch yesterday.

    I want to say that the trackpad is tolerable, but I recently had to drag and drop files from one folder to another for hours and it was awful because clicking is on the hinge at the top and movement is less than accurate.

    You don't notice it on light use, but back to back with my Razer Blade or my old Asus, the user experience with movement feels so much better.

    It is really too bad that this thing has nearly perfect specs all the way around but the basics are tough to love.

    What form factor SSD does this 15X Aero have? 2280 etc? Or what sizes can it take?
