    Will Brick and Mortar like Best Buy Carry the new model immediately once released or it’s gonna take a couple months?

    Giving my budget.... it’s between a 7590 or a MacBook Pro 13 for which I really don’t want but I’m kinda invested in the apple ecosystem to which I have to live with the keyboard... otherwise it’s a no brainer

    The OLED screen and top camera are nice upgrades. On the downside, Dell and Intel have been refreshing the same basic chassis and CPU architecture for 4 generations now.

    If Dell has sorted out the cooling, sleep, and DPC latency challenges, I think this certainly can be a competitive laptop worthy of consideration in 2019 for thin and light systems.

    I agree, needs to sort out the major issues from the current 9570 model. I want one just for the sweet oled screen but don't want to pay for it. my 9570 4k will have to do for now

    DPC latency fix has been confirmed by Frank Azor on twitter, when asked directly after the model reveal.
    *cooling on the other hand had been summed up in "this is not a laptop for gaming" and that is it..

    I understand some audio folks were not totally happy with the outcome.

    Meanwhile, the service manual for the 7590 is up, and it appears that finally the heatspreader covers the VRM mosfets; though, no vapour chamber, no extra heatpipes, the fins don't appear to be any bigger.

    The configurator is up

    Seems like the touch display is still the top and brightest option... if you want 4K and the i7 with the minimum amount of ram and storage

    2 grand

    So now I’m still debating between the 7590 or the base MacBook Pro 15

    Dell took a long time to respond to that and the "fix" was not so good. I do not recommend the 9570 for any audio production or live work.

    The drivers for this laptop have been released and have been added to the OP.

    I took a look at it... so that means under the heat spreader is a thermal Pad? or paste?

    it seems that not all the mosfets are covered if I'm looking at it correctly
