    The 7567 and 7577 both have m.2 slots in addition to SATA connections for a standard laptop hard drive. The stock NVMe SSD occupies the m.2 slot and the stock HDD (if equipped) occupies the SATA port.

    I wanted to actually use my old intel 5100 wireless card from dell latitude e6400 due to its linux compatibility. I dont think it will fit on m.2 slot due to different ends.

    I dont know but the new intel card used in 7577 cannot go to packet injection mode. So i am relying on my old intel 5100 for that purpose. I dont have my machine right now so cannot confirm.
    However few geeks managed to install ubuntu on a 7567. So i think there nothing like we cannot boot linux in these machines.

    Which ubuntu version are you talking about?
    Give the linux firmware 1.164.x a try. https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux-firmware
    I hope you know how to install the deb package via Gdebi or synaptic package manager. I also recommend using Linux HWE tweak to download latest kernels either 44.11/4.13. Use 16.04 to best performance.

    What are you talking about? The Dell user manual lists Linux as a supported O/S...

    @vibhawa the mPCIe standard is physically larger than the m.2 standard but the underlying communication protocol should be the same. If you really wanted to I'm sure you could rig up an adapter of some kind but it wouldn't be discrete or convenient by any means.

    You're better off just buying a compatible external USB-based plug in WiFi module that has the driver options and control you need.

    EDIT:

    Look here for more discussion:

    And here for an adapter example:

    Thanks for the adapter.
    I guess an external wireless card is a better option.
    Finally my Intel 5100 will retire after 7 years.

    Hi everybody, I received the Dell 7577 3 weeks ago. It is my first Dell and Its awesome, great temp compared to my old Vaio F136. But is there anyway i can adjust the screen color? it is pretty bad :(

    Does Dell have "battery care" function? The battery stop charging at 80% to reserve charge cycle ==> longer battery lifespan. My old Vaio has this function.

    I think you right click on the desktop and you will see intel video controller there. If I remember correctly.

    Dell uses QuickSet app to set charge thresholds.For screen calibration I'd check this site and see if you have similar screen model described here https://www.notebookcheck.net/Dell-...HQ-GTX-1060-Max-Q-Laptop-Review.264134.0.html
