    I just upgraded to 4X8GB 2667MHz memory but the system still shows it running at 2400. Not sure what's going on, the specs on the laptop clearly state it supports up to 32 GB of 2667????

    I've been having bluescreens and graphics glitches after doing the last windows "feature update".
    I get some soft page fault bluescreen on startup, and after the auto restart, i get no video anymore.
    I can close the laptop, (to let it sleep), then when I wake it up the video is back.

    Is it 4K or Full HD?

    I think there is a good chance that this would work. It has a TDP of 60 watts compared to the Nvidia M2000M that has a TDP of 55 watts, so it's only 5 watts more power consumption (Max). As far as I know Dell does not whitelist the video card but I could be wrong. That would be the main stumbling block. it's just about impossible to get around the whitelist limitation if it's in play.

    At least up to the M4800, Dell definitely haven't used whitelists, and odds are good they haven't started since, either.

    Dell doesn't whitelist GPUs so that's not an issue. Any GPU "should" work — You'll likely have to modify the driver INF file to get it to load, though. I don't know the AMD side very well but I'll mention that many newer GPUs require eDP and older M4800s have LVDS displays instead of eDP, so you'll have to check on that. There's always a chance that some quirk of the BIOS will prevent the unsupported GPU from working — this is blocking NVIDIA Pascal GPUs in this generation of systems. No way to know this until someone tries it.

    Was a question, now just some notes as I've figured it out (I think):

    I'm going to take the 7510 on an airplane shortly.

    This thread:
    https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/travel-technology/1660532-high-power-laptop-flight-power-4.html

    Shows someone getting their 180W power brick to work on an airline, by unplugging/plugging it in repeatedly until the power brick is 'charged', after which they can plug their laptop into it.

    I'm going to try that on the airplane. I'm currently making an 'airplane' power mode in windows 10 advanced power options, to attempt to self-throttle the laptop so it doesn't ever pull more than 110W (or whatever the actual power plug cap is). Should be interesting to see how this goes!

    It shouldn't be difficult to keep the power drain well below 110W under light usage conditions. I think that the dGPU is the biggest power hog on these notebooks so that the component you need to throttle. Get a mains outlet power meter so you can experiment at home and see how the mains power consumption varies with different usage patterns.
