    My turn to start one. I am holding out for the fingerprint reader before I order one but I expect them to start showing up at peoples doors within the next few days.

    Please post when you have one or if you have a confirmed order.

    I will have an XPS 9550 to compare the XPS 9560 so I will see what parts can be swapped over and supply the usual pictures.
    I hope they fixed the screen flicker issue in this one as no fix to date has fully worked on the 9550.

    Handy links (will try to keep this up to date)

    Drivers

    How to enable speedshift by hacking the BIOS (edited for the 9650 with the correct variable)
    How to add the options needed to the power options so you can adjust the settings.

    Internal pics and also nit picking to show how piss poor the QC STILL is

    Expecting delivery of a 9560 with 4K display, 32 GB RAM and 1 TB SSD in the first week of February. Have been using an XPS 13 9343 for about two years now, and it has been flawless. I'll keep you guys posted.

    I have ordered one of these. :)
    Decided I need a 2nd more portable laptop.
    I look forward to ripping this thing a part and applying magic pads and liquid magic.
    Nice to be here. :)

    If the BIOS is related to the 9550 that 960 pro won't work ;)

    People fitting the new Samsung pro drives to the 9550 with the latest BIOS cannot detect it in the BIOS, almost as though Dell are back to restricting drives that will work to the list they use again.
