    Will do this :) should be here in the first week of may

    I had premuim on site service from Dell. They tried to repair it since mid of january and after 35 mails and hours on the phone they told me to exchange it with a new one. Had to pay 400 euros to upgrade from 1070 to 1080.

    Rinneh, I would like to have a conversation with you on the DC-IN cable issue on AW 15 r2 which melted the case. I will create a separate post.
