    Update: NONE of the IMEI drivers will work 100% in Windows 10. Essentially, Dell is lying by stating this device is Windows 10-compatible. They really need to be held to account on this!

    i'm looking for a 13 inch notebook for my girl...

    we have some options...like

    hp spectre x360 ( 6200u , 8gb , 256ssd ) better weight and battery
    dell xps 13 ( i5 6200u , 8gb 256 ssd ) better weight ever , no touch
    dell inspiron 13 7000 ( i7 6500u , 8gb , ssd 256 gb ) bad weight and battery ( by reviews ) but price much more better...

    other options are asus zenbook ( but i hate dedicate video card , my girl use it for business and don't need it ) and hp envy 13...

    for you, the inspiron 13 7000 is a good choice ? the battery is so bad like the reviews explain ?

    I found a pretty good profile to DN here: http://www.notebookcheck.net/uploads/tx_nbc2/W64C6_B156XTN.icm

    You will be way more confortable to work after applying it.

    From here: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Dell-Inspiron-15-5547-Notebook-Review.122261.0.html

    Yet it's still not what I'm looking for: a decent profile for quasi-pro photo editing.

    I have the same problem after upgrade to Windows 10 and a few minor, for exaple with update nVidia driver. There was no Bluetooth option in the system settings (resolved it).

    I'm looking at the Dell as well and right now I have the option of buying the core i5 with a M.2 SSD directly from Dell or a core i7 with an HDD from B&H. Both are $850. If I buy the i7 version from B&H, I will have to spend another $100 on an M.2 SATA SSD.

    I need to run a quad monitor external setup with excel, multiple browsers, and a trading platform and I'd like to know if the core i5 will suffice? My previous PC had a Core i7 3630QM (2.40 GHz) and I thought it was perfect for my needs. Given this, should I go for the 6th gen i5 or i7?

    I originally got the i7559-763 i5 model, returned it and got the i7 model (the Slickdeals/Dell $699 special). For $85 on Amazon I got the Samsung 850EVO 256Gb M.2 SSD and made it the boot drive. For $35 I added another 8Gb of ram.

    I'd go with the i7, better to have more horsepower for when you need it than need it and not have it.

    Hi,
    I need help with my dell 13 7348. I am trying to find some good icm (display profile). I have profile from notebookcheck at this moment, but the gamma is to high, but still much better than default.

    Hi,
    My friend's inspiron 7447 has strange touch pad behavior. When using battery, touch pad works okay, no lag. But when the laptop is charging, touch pad become stutter/lag. Already tried to re-install driver with different version but still have the problem. Is there anyone having the same problem?
    Thanks.
