    Hi all!
    There is an updated version of the XPS 13 with 8-th gen Core processors. I would like to get the model with the Core i5-8250U processor and FHD matte display, but I'm afraid it still has that horrible CABC-'feature' making it pretty much useless dor me. Can anyone confirm that it still has the same Panel and that CABC still is not deactivable for the FHD-model?

    Btw.: Is there any recommendable matte-foil for the QHD+ version? I can't live with a glossy screen. I'm too ugly to stare at me all day..

    Thank you in advance.

    I recently bought the i5-7200U FHD model and tried pretty much everything to get rid of the CABC. After several phone calls with dell's technical support I accepted the conclusion: CABS simply can not be turned off on the FHD model.
    That horrible piece of code is flashed to the panels rom and can not be accessed via BIOS, etc. to be overwritten.
    So, why does Dell not simply flash a CABC-free Version of the panel's firmware (for newer models)? I really don't get it. Its so increadibly annoying and simply 'stupid'. I want that laptop, but CABC is a dealbreaker and QHD+ Version (here you can turn CABC off) is unaccaptable for me due to the mirror-like reflections. I guess Dell does not want my money..
