    How is throttling these parts at normal casual-use operating temperatures considered a performance enhancement? Is that really what they do, or has sarcasm become a means of coping with the heartache associated with broken products?
    Clever marketing, but those paying attention might notice a trend.

    I suppose I should add another question onto my list:

    Does the 4 core version also get the "new" mobo layout and VRM heatsinks? I guess I'll find out.

    I’d like to know this as well.

    The 4 core SKU with no dGPU, 1080p display, 8GB ram, 256GB SSD and upgrade to the 97WH battery is $1,150. As a result, I’m thinking this would have the best battery life and thermals and good for general productivity MS office suite tasks for a person on the go like myself.

    Not impressive DPC latency despite a very short run.

    We know Dell does not unleash these to the public with polished drivers so hoping results improve in a few weeks or a few months.

    A reminder that any "XPS 15 7590 reviews" out already aren't really reviews. Wait 2-3 weeks.

    Looks like people who ordered the day before me are already getting their laptops! :D Though the few examples I can find are running a stock configuration (4k OLED i7/i9), and I chose a few upgrade options (from an i5 base model), so mine may be delayed, compared to their laptops.
