8th gen performance increases will be substantial. Personally waiting until Jan/Feb when dell rep said new chip upgrade.
Unless Intel releases a new 8th gen H replacement chip for laptops between now and January there won't be much of a performance boost between the 7th gen i7 7700HQ and the 8th gen 8650u. So far the only chips announced and released for mobile platform is the 8550u & 8650u on the i7 level with the purpose of replacing 7th gen U chips. This is where most of the performance gains are on U chip comparisons, not compared with the 7700HQ. May see some better battery life with the low wattage chip compared to the 7700HQ, but from what I understand that will be about it. Correct me if I am wrong. Now if Dell can upgrade the graphics card to a 1060 and fix any heat issues that will be significant. Did the Dell rep mention what chip upgrade is planned to replace the i7 7700HQ ?

Good deal... I assume you applied discounts to get the price down to that. Just keep in mind, there's no guarantee the 512GB SSD will be a Samsung. It's more likely to be an SK Hynix or Toshiba drive.
RFD mods are on a power trip... how about messaging me before changing my signature. Some common courtesy would have been nice.

I bought this laptop in Thanksgiving sale, but I found the wireless network speed is very slow, did anyone experience it? What's the return policy? Within 30 days, can I return it without any charge?

4K one is on $500 discount. Contemplating to pull the trigger or wait for Black Friday. Any suggestions?

depends how bad you need a computer.You can get down to 1800 with coupons but peanuts from ebates.

Plus 8th gen xps15 should be coming out soon, seeing a lot of dell models now have 8th gen in it

Thanks.

I am not in a hurry and 8th gen is looking great with 40% increase in performance / better battery but with the new launch I am assuming there will no discounts.
It will be certainly out of budget then.

The drive has performance issues in Ubuntu. Kept on getting I/O errors (was referencing a thread I found). I needed a better supported drive for Linux, and one would cost around $150. I told the CSR I would have preferred a Samsung SSD instead of the SK Hynix SSD, and then she gave me a few options to keep the laptop. Credit towards the purchase of a new drive off the Dell site, or credit towards my laptop.
Got my 9560 and it came with the 512GB SK Hynix drive. Could you please send me the link to the thread that mentions the issues with this drive in linux/ubuntu?

Just wondering how you got that price? Best I can do is 2049 plus tax for the same config but with only 16GB.
