    I flew on a Jetblue A321 and i had zero problems getting the 180W power running.
    I didn't even need to unplug/replug it in. I was quite surprised.

    You sure your old one was 1.15.4? I always install the new updates and the last one I had before the one released on 1/9/18 was 1.14.4.

    Yep, checked my downloads folder and I downloaded 1.15.4 on 12/23 and I remember checking the system information page in windows to verify it installed.

    The SHA checksum is different on the two files so something changed, which I believe to be the cpu microcode update.

    Either way, I would recommend everyone install the latest 1.15.4 if you wish to remain safe.

    Once a tried my 7510 with my older Dell's 90W charger and it worked well. It did not throttle down the CPU (there was no GPU usage) and it charged the battery as well but very very slowly. The CPU itself consumes max 45W and the rest of the system (except the GPU) can run below 90W.
    The 180W is for cover all power consumption including charging the battery, running the CPU and GPU at maximum power and plugging consumers in all USB ports.

    Hi guys,
    Quick question. A colleague's keyboard space key (7510) is getting less reliable. Does anyone know if the 7510's keypad is a user serviceable part? (we don't have on-site warranty - ideally, if it is user serviceable - we'll just get it repaired ourselves). Otherwise will have to get them an external keyboard until the Easter holiday.

    Thanks,

    The keyboard is easy to replace. You can find directions in the manual at support.dell.com, but basically you pry off the plastic bezel and then take out a few screws to remove the keyboard, which is connected to the motherboard with a single cable. You can find replacement keyboards readily on eBay (or call Dell spare parts and I imagine that they'd be happy to sell you one). Pay attention to backlit vs. not backlit, and also the keyboard language/layout, if you get a different keyboard layout by accident it won't fit with your existing plastic bezel.

    Have replaced the keypad before on 7510 when I was upgrading another unit's RAM.

    It's just there are the ribbons and you've got to take off many tiny keypad screws - I've got a feeling it's not intended to be user serviceable (but then again, the RAM under the keypad surely are user serviceable - or are they?).

    Do you happen to remember if Dell considers it a user serviceable parts? (e.g. if they do - they'll be able to send out the replacement keypad, we'll fit it on; if it's not considered customer serviceable - will have to wait until Easter when the colleague's not using the system). Tempted to just go on eBay and grab one. :) Note to self: get on-site warranty next time.
