    I have 32gb of ram and still get a ton of lag when loading 60 chrome tabs lol

    Is this bc of the 6700hq? I went through the exact same test with the 15r3 with 6820hk and zero lag.

    I miss the 6820hk.....*sigh

    *as for the microstuttering, it's back again after updating the bios lol i think we'll just have to give up until microsoft and/or nvidia comes up with a fix...

    It's strange though bc my 15r3 with 1070 didn't have this problem. Seems like the 1060s are being disproportionately affected. I wish dell would fix this via a bios update though like gigabyte did with their's although it's technically a nvidia/win10 problem.

    Well this dude says that he got his GPU up to 90 degrees without any throttling so I guess 82 83 is completely fine.

    EDIT: This guys saying he gets 8 - 18 hours of battery with his 13 r3 OO. What in the world?

    Eight hours seems like it might be true if he has the 1366 x 768 TN screen and has the brightness down, eighteen seems impossible even if he's just using excel like he mentioned (and if he really can get that much battery life then he should contact Dell as I'm sure they'd love to quote that in their advertisements if it is true and can be proven). I really don't suspect it's true though.

    Haven't purchased one yet.

    Plan is to get one once the 1060 starts to show its age.

    When my daughter is a bit older and I get time to game on the TV again, I'll get an OLED TV and hook the 13 + AGA (+1080) up for some big screen fun.


    This what I absolutely love about the 13.

    You can just game anywhere, its brilliant! ;)

    I have the same pannel. What is weird is if that panel is produced in 2015, why was there a shortage if any?
