    could someone explain how we install windows 7 x64 on 9550. I have flash card (Rufus) and W7 ISO with USB3.0 drivers. Will be all necessary drivers available on dell site. Somebody had experience with it?

    You can see the W10 ISO in the footer of any post from @GoNz0 . He has a thread running through clean installs of W10 so that gets you most of the way. I think there are a few windows 7 threads for the 9550 also that can resolve any issues you might have.

    The 9560 has the most graphics and processor horsepower. The 9370 is a lower powered unit.

    If you are going to push the 9560 hard, you might want to look at the thermals threads as this is a furnace. There are a few fixes to resolve a lot of the throttling. A repaste of the CPU & GPU, undervolt are very helpful. But this will throttle when the vrm ambient sensor hits just 76*C so if that is a problem, then @iunlock has a thread to fix that (it takes a bit of effort but seems to work for several "extreme" users here).

    hahaha.

    Depends on your hearing.

    Hello, i have xps 15 9550, 512GB SSD, 16GB RAM. Recent windows update (KB4093112) disabled wifi (no wifi icon would appear when selecting lower right corner), solution for me was to uninstall dell wifi peripheral and restart would re install it).
    Hope it helps ;-)
