    @Rei Fukai

    First I had to run diagostics tool from Dell.nl (LOL), only then I could fill out the service form and there I asked for a 2 year premium quote (as if you do RMA on Dell.nl), then it took 20-30 e-mails and 3 weeks to get lowest possible??? 380 EUR. Definitely better than originally pushed 720 EUR.

    Okay, so it is not upgradeable. That makes me have another reason to get rid of this once I can get a Clevo again. I guess the only thing I like about this over my previous Clevos is that it maintains its value a bit better.

    Yeah they do that to verify that your system is not broken right ? If it does not pass they wouldn't sell you the premium support ( if I was correct ). Pretty lame, but yeah you got a discount so your method worked. Going to prepare myself and lower my IQ before I make contact with Dell. Using knowledge and common sense won't help when dealing with Dell.

    Thanks brother.

    Hello, I've got a WiFi issue with my laptop. I recently had the killer 1435 and after a few hours internet would get cut off! I swapped it out for the intel 9260 thought that would resolve the issue. I still have the issue where the WiFi will get cut off after so many hours does anyone know what the reason for this could be?

    When the wifi cut off happens, do you use sleeping? closing hood?

    Yes. I am in (could be specific to) The Netherlands. First I called for a quote, but was advised to do it this way (above). It worked very good because I was directly contacted by 3 different departments offering me different quotes LOL
