    Unfortunately I made a miserable choice. I bought a top end XPS 15 rather than continuing my years long relationship with Lenovo's workstations. I find the Dell unusable. Its guts are fine and likely equal to the P52. No throttling at extreme performance and a great 4k touch screen. However its input systems are simply unusable. The keyboard has little feel and the keys are very flat and hard to use for touch typing. The touchpad is amazingly bad. Given I am used to our great little red nub for mouse navigation, so likely I just can't convert to using a large touch pad that does all sorts of extraneous things when it is touched.

    Even though I just spent $2800 on the Dell and the P52 is about the same cost, I am going to put the Dell in a dark closet and will buy a P52.

    I hope others will avoid this same mistake.

    If you like the stick and it's the best one out there by a good margin, nothing else can scratch that itch. Why not return or sell the Dell, unless you've got a $2800 to waste?
