    Just ordered mine today, took out the £25 1 years accidental damage, less the £50 offer and it should have come to £824 but the sales rep offered my a price of £821.56 :)

    For this spec:

    Components
    1 Inspiron 15 7000 Series (7559)
    1 6th Generation Intel Core i7-6700HQ Processor (6M Cache, up to 3.50 GHz)
    1 MOD,LCD,15.6UHD,TCH,LGD,PDR 15
    1 LCD Back Cover for Touch UHD Screen -Black
    1 8GB 1 DIMM (1x8GB) DDR3L 1600Mhz
    1 1TB (5400rpm) Hybrid HDD with 8GB Flash
    1 Power Cord UK
    1 130 Watt AC Adaptor
    1 74WHr, 6-Cell (Int)
    1 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 Processor Label
    1 Palmrest label for Touch, English
    1 NV GTX 960M 4GB GDDR5
    1 Intel(R) 3165 1x1 802.11ac Wi-Fi Wireless LAN and Bluetooth
    1 Internal UK/Irish Qwerty Backlit Keyboard
    1 McAfee(R) 30day Trial
    1 Intel 3165AC + BT4.0 [802.11ac + Bluetooth 4.0, Dual Band 2.4&5 GHz, 1x1]
    1 Additional Software
    1 Fixed Hardware Configuration
    Software
    1 Windows 10 Home (64bit) English
    1 MUI Microsoft(R) Office Trial
    1 McAfee LiveSafe Consumer 12 Month Subscription

    Given the ease of access of the previous model (7548) and the images submitted on this thread of the internals, it looks like it's going to be an easy upgrade to 16Gb RAM (1 RAM slot used in my spec) and a 256Mb M.2 SSD

    Thanks for all the info so far in this thread, very helpful and made me confident I've made the right choice and saved myself a packet over the XPS 15.

    Will come back with pictures and to answer any questions when it arrives.

    Here's the official promo video from Dell's youtube channel in case you want to see the design in a bit more detail:

    I've ordered the entry version via Dell uk (699 quid after discount) to replace my Lenovo X220i tablet which was stolen in a break-in, expected arrival on 5 Nov. Overall experience of ordering is positive so far. I'm no gamer, but this could convert me. I was very close to ordering XPS, but it's heat dissipation is the main concern as I use it in bed to watch iplayer a lot (lenovo isn't famous for cooling). I didn't know that the addition of this model is so recent. I will share my experience when I get it.

    I'll write up a review once I get it too.

    I'm (pleasantly) surprised that Dell is including the 4GB version of the 960M in this laptop. I got the base version with the i5 for around $1139 CAD ($876 USD). For basic tasks and gaming, there really isn't much advantage to the i7 over the i5. Certainly not enough to justify the extra $200.

    I'd be careful with your expectations - this isn't a gaming laptop. Dell's recent offerings (including their Alienware) haven't been very good performers, throttling while under load, shipping with inadequate PSUs, etc. Hopefully they learned their lesson. This Inspiron model is an entry-level gaming device as far as I'm concerned. I'm just hopping its noise emissions and thermal management (including keyboard surface temperatures) are acceptable.

    For anything that isn't taxing on the GPU/CPU, the XPS should be fine. It's when you start heavy rendering programs or heavy gaming that heat/noise become an issue with these thin laptops - they're not designed primarily for those heavy tasks, as their thin chassis and lackluster cooling solutions can't handle the load.

    It's a problem many ASUS, MSI and Gigabyte machines (and especially the Razer Blade) suffer from - a thin chassis just can't handle that kind of hardware while maintaining palatable heat and noise levels.

    Indeed, I'd have gone for i5 if this was one of the made-to-order models on Dell uk!

    Haha, I doubt that dell 7559 will convert me into a gamer. I was shocked that my lenovo gets hot when I was only streaming online videos! I hope this dell won't break a sweat (and requires full throttle of two fans) for less demanding tasks. But it's good to know that it won't take ages when you need to convert a video or run heavy-going stat analysis.

    I'm following this thread, i'm interested. Let's hope that reviews are good. I'm a little bit disappointed that the grey colour is avaible only in the US and of the absence of the thunderbolt (the new nitro has one)

    The grey colour is only available on the touch screen models (at least in Canada), and the cheapest model only has black as an option.

    Thunderbolt 3 should've been included as far as I'm concerned, but given the pricing on the cheaper models, I'm not surprised. That being said, once you hit a price point of $1500 US+, TB3 should be included in a model.

    Anyone know if the 1080p screen is decent? Not sure I need the higher res and touch, I take it Win10 handles the higher res screens well?
