    so are we still on track for the launch of this new XPS 15 on April 16th 2018?
    Who's buying one?, who's testing one right now ?
    Is it safe to be an early adopter or will it have endless driver issues?

    hahaha.

    The XPS 9550 was an unmitigated disaster at release; that was largely sorted out after a year with improved BIOS, drivers, etc. The 9560 launch was much smoother. Incremental improvements were made in the early months with improved BIOS, drivers, etc.

    I think both the 9550 & 9560 are relatively sorted for experienced users at this point. But for power users, both "need" clean install of Windows, repaste of CPU/GPU, undervolting. And for casual gaming/video work, the 7700HQ throttles very quickly so there are extreme thermal mods several people did.

    As the 9570 is not a new box but minor refresh of the 9550, & 9560 (same CPU architecture, similar GPU, same case, same keyboard, similar screens... ), Dell's engineers have a reduced set of areas they can screw up.

    A few reddit users have the new XPS 2-in-1 9575 and are claiming very high temps and thermal throttling; aggressive undervolts helped a lot.

    So, as the 9570 is just a minor refresh of the 9550 & 9560, I hope the core engineering and drivers are fairly well sorted. I don't expect Dell to release a perfectly sorted machine day 0 but SPECULATE it will be pretty good. Given the tiny form factor, won't be surprised to see people here repasting, undervolting, etc...

    Regardless, I'll let you beta test and report back. . .

    Well, today is the 16th midday in NY and there is no sign of the 9570 on Dell's website.

    No good for me took, I am in Canada, and the Canadian website is a couple of days behind the US website.

    New Dell XPS 15 still not up on either the Dell Canadian site or the US site. However, US MSRP prices of some configurations are available...https://www.reddit.com/r/Dell/comments/8cs2ve/dell_xps_15_9570_official_prices/. Good news is that the prices are indeed the same as the 9560. No i9 model pricing available yet. Of course, for users here, it is best to wait for some discounts to combine with coupons, as this gives you some time to check early feedback of thermals, while getting a better deal. It will probably take Dell a lot of time to ship out the first units, anyways.

    Lol Dell just can't be organized
    Says laptop will be available on a certain date and nobody at the company is sure when the laptop will be available‍♂️
    Anyway, I'll not be 'tester' this time around... I'll wait to see if they've made any progress with this model or if users will still be complaining about the same issues from previous models

    I really hope they learned from their past mistakes and improved cooling by adding a full-cover coldplate for the VRMs that links them to the heatsink-fan array. If not, I'm afraid they may end up with a disaster.
