    Quick question XPS 15 9570 owners.
    How do I use the GTX 1050 ti over the on-board CPU?

    1. You can define any application in the Nvidia control panel of it running with Intel or Nvidia GPU.
    2. You can also right click in Explorer on any EXE=> run via Nvidia/Intel.
    3. in some games you can select the GPU

    I advise putting the default to Intel GPU and use the exclusive list to run Nvidia in the Nvidia panel.

    I want to prepare worst case scenario here, or, actually what potentially could happen with my weird XPS.

    What makes this laptop by far the better option than any competitor, what does this laptop HAVE that no one else has? I mean I will push and probably get asked if I want a new laptop or a refund as this one is not working.

    The reason I chose the XPS in the first place is the gigantic 97Wh battery, which I can't find on any other laptop. That's the only reason why I chose the XPS before Razer Blade or Asus Zenbook UX580ge pro.

    I am just re-considering my options as all the problems with the current XPS lineup and my experience with this is not really make me want to go with another one... :/

    Can anyone who has received laptops recently advise on the SSD that is installed. Looking at either the 512gb or the 1tb. Wondering if the upgrade is more than just drive space.

    It really doesn't matter what someone recently got, Dell uses whatever they have. You likely wouldn't notice a difference between a "slow" NVMe drive or a "fast" NVMe drive anyway.

    But some NVMe drives run hotter and you can see fast degradation in ssd's drive remaing life + massive throttling. A coomon problem in the Alienwares. Toshiba was one of the worst.

    Some NVMe drives do run hotter than others. I'm not sure how much it attributes to the lifespan of the drive but have seen some drives in the past throttle when benching. Any particular Toshiba drives? I've had a couple and they've never ran hot, but I haven't had anything newer than an XG4.

    At least this model... http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...4-owners-lounge.797457/page-420#post-10480924

    Also the newer model. I mean it was XG5. They really need heatsink/pads. The thinner notebook chassis with less airflow
