    Will see but the thermal solution looks better and I havent read about any of them having throttling issues. The XPS has throttling peoblems for ages already...kinda like it is meant as a Dell feature.

    The P3200 should be on the same level as a GTX1060 for gaming?

    Price will be higher but thats worth it to me. Wont pay for hardware that I cant fully use cause of throttling issues. Plus Thinkpads usually last a lifetime compared to Dell XPS.

    But by that time, you are paying extra for a Quadro card that is sub-optimal for gaming...why not just get a gaming laptop (if gaming is your biggest concern of course)? A Aero 15X or MSI GS65 makes much more sense then.

    Both with throttling issues. Also lower build quality than thinkpad I believe.

    I havent fully decided yet. It really depends on how much the Thinkpad will cost for my desired configuration.

    I am not a hardcore gamer either. Diablo 2, CSGO, Quakelive, ...not really the latest games :)

    But I am a linux user too if thatmatters.

    Do we have actuall confirmation about the 9570 4K being 100 nits brighter than the one in the 9560? When comparing them side by side I can't say I can really notice any difference.

    I also have a constant feeling of ther being some kind of automatic dimming on the XPS15, or my eyes are playing tricks on me again and again (but never on other screens). And yes, the automatic dimming in Windows is disabled (i believe it is by default these days).

    Regarding build quality, I would chose a Thinkpad over a Dell any day in the week. Its just a different leauge. But of course often more bulky/boring as well.

    Just some information, I reinstalled Windows (completely, ie formatted the system partition first) and the Write speeds of the SSD (1TB Toshiba) doubled according to CrystalDiscMark. And this is from an almost fresh factory installation before, ie no other software installed that what Dells includes default. From about 900 MB/s SEQ32T1 to 2100 MB/s

    - heavier
    - probably worse screen
    - probably a little bigger.

    The P52 seems to be a different product class than the XPS 15, and is significantly heavier. The shifted layout due to a number pad is a major drawback for me.
