    You are lucky to have on-site service. Otherwise there’s another 10-day wait.

    So far I don't like Dell's next day onsite service. The email I received from them last Wednesday:
    Also, checking the status of the dispatch, the part replacement needed for the system is currently on backorder and current ETA of the part is on: 09/04/2018.
    Are you willing to wait for the parts availability? Or are you okay with having the system replaced? For system replacement, this is subject for approval and process may take 7-10 business days once approved.

    So I agreed for system replacement but apparently it will take much more than 7-10 days.

    I just received a similar email from the representative, not even mentioning the wait time, said he'll update me on that tomorrow. I find this unacceptable for a business class product, a lot of us rely on these machines for work. I'm glad I didn't waste my time sending it in but now I'm seriously contemplating a flat out return.

    Hi everybody,
    I'm coming from a precision m6600 with 7 years of honorable works, i've just placed a order for this configuration that is intended to be used primarily for Revit & 3ds max and rendering with Vray and Corona.
    I already thinking of upgrading RAM, do you think is possible to add 16GB keeping the original without having problems?
    I also want to add some memory an 2TB or more hdd 7200rpm any suggestion on durability and data safe?
    I think after this little addition this machine should be the best for my tipe of work.
    Thank you for your suggestion.
    Mark

    Will keep updated when i can handle this marvelous machine.

    Estimated delivery on 08/20

    SDRAM DDR4 da 2.666 MHz, 16 GB, 2 DIMM, non ECC

    Just got email from the Dell for the replacement system. They offer similar configuration but the screen is a little different. My current is 15.6" UltraSharp FHD IPS, 1920x1080 AG, NT, w/Prem Panel Guar 72% color gamut LCD and they offer 15.6" FHD IPS 1920x1080 AG non-touch, Mic, 45% color gamut. What is color gamut? Is it worse because it's only 45% and my current is 72%? Thanks.

    Color gamut represents the range of colors that the screen can faithfully reproduce. A 45% color gamut for a workstation-class laptop is frankly unacceptable.

    No, don't accept it. Pressure them for a screen of at least equal quality. You will notice significantly worse colour performance with the replacement screen.

    Color gamut refers to the range of visible colors. Yes the lower the number, the worse the color range of the display on the device is. Low color saturation, contrast, and tint can be expected. To put it into perspective, you can expect a percentage of 45% NTSC to be comparable to consumer laptops with TN panels in the range of $300-800, while 72% NTSC (99% sRGB) being the standard found in IPS desktop monitors and mid-to-high end TV's. It's just another way for them to cut costs and in turn, quality. EIZO has a great article here if you'd like to read up on the topic more https://www.eizoglobal.com/library/basics/lcd_monitor_color_gamut/

    You can add an additional 16GB, but for compatibility make sure that the modules that you purchase match the timings of the modules that come in the system. (Speed, CAS latency, etc.) You won't be able to see these until after you get the system but so far everyone seems to be getting 2666 MHz CL-19 modules.

    If you purchased the 97 Whr battery, then you cannot add a 2.5" drive (no 2TB HDD, it won't fit). Even if you purchased the smaller battery, I am not sure if the system will come with the interposer and bracket needed to mount a 2.5" drive, if you did not order one with the system. If this is an issue, I suggest that you look into Samsung 860 EVO M.2 SSDs. They are a good bit more expensive than standard hard drives, but they much faster and at the same time quite a bit cheaper than PCIe drives or the extra drives Dell offers in this system at purchase time, so they are a good choice if you are more interested in maximizing storage capacity rather than storage speed. You can have up to four M.2 SSDs installed total and they are easy to install aftermarket. I got a 2TB for $550 and it is working great in the Precision 7530.

    Unfortunately, this is exactly what my screen looked like. Which makes me think it's a production QC issue. I'm currently looking at HP Zbooks which can be configured with DreamColor panels. My past experience with their wide gamut screens and elitebook quality in general was always very good.
