    I upped the dpi scaling to 200% for my parents. They said it was perfect

    On the official Dell page it states 4.5 hours on standby and 3 hours on video play back.

    Honestly that's more than I thought but these numbers are always unrealistic as this normally with the brightness all the way down and keyboard back lights off.

    So 2 hours for general purpose use is probably accurate. I'll know in a couple weeks. ;)

    Is the screen the same as the P870TM1? IPS 1080p 144 Hz

    Do any of you take your DTR laptops around occasionally? How is owning one day to day? What sorts of bags do you guys use? This is going to be my first DTR and I'm a bit anxious about the size, tbh

    I travel roughly 80% of the year, This bag so far is the only thing comfortable enough to me. I can carry a AW17R4, X1 Carbon, Vita, large E-Reader, PSU for laptop(s), and random other electronics and snacks and Im good to go.

    According to my source, there's no real process in place [yet] for them to verify the TIM. This statement sounds like an attempt to discourage people from repasting with Liquid metal products. Probably a lot of mess was made and a lot of hardware was ruined in the last couple of years. So, if you ever use liquid metal, make sure to clean and replace with a normal paste before sending it back if you ever have to. That should be enough to keep the warranty intact.

    As for your OS, yes Linux Mint is great, now how about Qubes with Subgraph next? Personally, I'm still lacking the knowledge to drive those efficiently, so using various debian and arch flavors to learn. But I still have Mint on one of my laptops, very solid OS.

    He’s, the Japanese marketing team already know Area 15m since winter 2017, and at the end of the show he told that users shouldn’t hoping too much battery life it would be around 2 hours normal usage unlike m15, because the power that is taken.
    There will be something like nvidia experience, all games would be on games library and you can optimize the game and costumize the Keyboard lightning for that as well.
