    Sorry for the off topic thing - do you have any charging issues on 1.2.13?

    Nothing specific to this BIOS. I've had the whole 'plugged in not charging' issue a couple times on other BIOS releases though. Had to open her up and unplug the battery from the motherboard, and press and hold the power button for 5 seconds then plug the battery back in to fix that. I'm almost exclusively charging via my TB15 though and rarely use the stock charger.

    Great. The beta from the Intel website didn't do anything for me at all. Will give this one a go.

    It seems better OMM - but I wasn't affected as badly as some folks (plus I could be suffering from the placebo affect).

    I rolled back 1.2.10 BIOS and with the latest Intel drivers off Dell's website, the flickering issue is gone.

    BIOS 1.02.13 + latest Intel's from Dell website, still equals screen flicker for me on the 4k panel.
    It's time to pull your finger out and fix this, Dell!
