    True, but well..that brochure is more than enough to claim an RJ45 dongle for free from Dell...they put it there by mistake...they pay for that...

    Website specs mention the Ethernet dongle but it's not part of the order. Probably a screw up.

    Does anybody know if this new model comes with a backlit keyboard? I do a lot of work late into the evening so this would help with wife based nagging about needing the lights on bright!

    For people ordering the XPS 15, what discounts are you getting? I ordered the middle config on the phone and managed $165 off 1899. Dell Advantage 5%, + $50 + $15 when I asked for a student discount. It basically covered tax + $50. Anyone manage better than that?

    The manual is already online (search the XPS13 manual, open it and change the model code to xps15-9530).

    It seems to be service-firendly for such a thin notebook.
    After taking of the bottom, you can change/access:
    battery(!), RAM (two not soldered DIMMs!), HDD, MSATA card(!), NFC card, Wireless, fans (two!), speakers.

    Phillips screws, now Torx or Pentalobe, nothing glued, RAM/HDD exchangeable - take this apple.. :)

    The only thing I missed was a mention on the version 512mb MSATA / big battery. Would be interesting if it`s one big battery, but probably it is.
