    I'm having a horrible time with my 9365. Stock OS, spiked at 100% whenever I use Chrome on battery. Really disappointed so far. Anyone else?

    Video is great, however, but frustrated by performance issues under relatively minor loads.

    I've had this glorious laptop for a few days. Has anyone found a non-Dell USB-C external rechargeable battery that works with the 9365?

    I've just picked up one of these earlier today. I have a regular XPS 13 that I've been enjoying since summer of 2015. No issues to complain about really after updating drivers and bios but I do notice when I was using the machines side by side earlier that the new 9365 appears to have slightly off colored whites/lower luminance maybe in the upper portion of the display. My regular XPS 13 (9343) is a tad more uniform. Anyone else notice this on their 9365 on sites with mostly white background?

    Well the screen backlight has evened out which is nice, but I'm finding the toshiba ssd to be a bit noisy/chattery at times? It's not the coil whine as I also have a little bit of this but it's not bad. Anyone else have a chattery hard drive at times?

    Has anyone replace the SSD m.2 drive? Can you get off the market brand? What does Class 40 means?

    Is the memory removable by user and get a bigger memory?

    From what I've read - SSD yes but ram no.

    Anyone here did a clean install of this machine? What files are not needed to install? Any tips?

    Thanks.

    Cross post from another thread .. sorry ...

    Has anyone successfully clean install of a retail Windows 10 for the Dell XPS 2-in1 13" laptop, the 9365 model?

    What are your steps?

    Can I use a bootable micro SD card that I create using Rufus and put it on the microSD slot and do it?

    Any settings I have to change in the BIOS or do in the Boot Screen (F12) ?

    Thanks for your help.
