    Yes... Good... Join us...
    It is worth the wait though, you really have to see the OLED because pictures don't do it justice.

    Absolutely worth it.

    I was very happy with the screen on my Razer Blade Stealth, which I was running until I bought an 13 R3. When I turned on my 13 the OLED immediately jumped out at me - it was mesmerising. But I actually failed to realise how awesome it actually was until I went back, after a couple of weeks of it gathering dust, and reset my Stealth for sale. I can barely look at that screen without wondering how I was ever happy with it; and I truly was, it's a good panel too. It's just the OLED on the 13 is amazing.

    Side note, I see there's new signed Killer drivers that apparently stop the disconnect issue and I have installed them. To be honest, I'd only notice a problem if I was downloading a large file for a long time, and tried to do something else demanding concurrently. But then, I am in a terrible location for wi-fi currently (living in a basement with the router two floors up) so who knows where that problem stemmed from. Hopefully these new drivers do fix the (intermittent) issue. They've done nothing detrimental to the speed of my connection at least.

    Anandtech does. In their consistency tests, the 950 Pro behaved close to the older SATA 850 Pro/Evo drives, while the newer 960 Pro was an apparent improvement.

    Dell replacement team have reduced my skylake to kaby upgrade fee to £100 for the same spec (except the 1535).

    Can't get them lower than this, so will pay the difference.

    With the 10% refund due to the poor service, pays for itself really.

    Hopefully get it sorted by end of week :)

    I might be interested in pursuing this as well, what was the email address?

    Was this on the back of issues with your current one or just because you want the 7700?

    I don't think it's an option really.
    My dell tech requested it due to then taking forever to get my issues sorted. He's been really great.
    Can't say the same for the replacement team. Pretty poor tbh.

    If you having issues, speak to your Dell rep and request a replacement. Once accepted request an upgrade to kaby.

    Depends who you get really.

    My laptop was from the batch that was seemingly plagued by bad battery wear.

    It started with 5% wear, then went to 11% the next week, well it's week 3 or 4 and it's back to 3% :D

    Mine stayed at 20.4 and never recovered after I did two complete battery cycles to try and fix it

    I have seen quite a few wear levels settle down and reduce over the course of this thread.

    I have tried to do full drains. Then charge up fully (powered off) a few cycles.

    But nothing sorted my wear levels out.

    3%...thats not too shabby.
