Maybe this will work, but be careful... mobile browsers are very limited. No extensions, many websites deliver bad mobile website versions, etc.
Can't beat the portability if a tablet. Especially one that has LTE.

Try to get 10 hours or more from a notebook

On my 12.9" iPad Pro, 99,% of the time I don't get the mobile version of the web site.

Thanks OP. Bought the i7/512G XPS 15. Thank God for the timing as my $599 Lenovo flex 5 1470 died again for the second time in 15 months. Stay away from Lenovo!!

The XPS 13 has no trouble getting that time. The latest model gets 13h of web browsing time: https://www.notebookcheck.net/index.php ... s[]=302316

Now you try installing uBlock Origin on your iPad's browser.

I bought XPS 15 at Eaton Center at 8 pm. Very good deal. Cheaper than US as well.

Ok. I just checked my 9570 warranty on dell website using the service tag. It is only good till August 2019 (it must have sit at MS store warehouse for a while).

How do I get the 1 year full warranty again?

Sigh wish they had the Xps13. Xps15 too big for me... Need portability. But no doubt good deal, great for the people who needed one!

Thanks OP. I picked up XPS 15, 9570 i7, 512G. I been looking for a long time for a laptop with big discount. I finally make a move tonight. I have been comparing with Lenovo P1 and Extreme but the price on Microsoft store is so much better and cannot resist.

Ok. I figured out the warranty part for xps.
You need to phone XPS tech support line. They will send you an email, you forward the receipt. They will contact back office people to update the database.

Remember to ask them to change to Canadian depot warranty from US too.

Is the $599 15” Dell a decent computer for light productivity/web browsing?
My advice: dont buy this. its slow, bulky, ugly but most of all, NOISY AND HOT, fans go crazy.

Has anyone tried to get a better deal for a FHD/1080P screen instead of the 4k in-store or online?

Now you try installing uBlock Origin on your iPad's browser.
You can install uBlock Origin if you install FireFox on the iPad

If you use Safari, you can use Wipr. It is not as good as uBlock Origin but it works well

I find a notebook too cumbersome if your needs are basic. The form factor is not ideal.

Any thoughts on the HyperX vs the Razer Thresher Wireless Gaming Headset for Xbox One?

I like the concept of wireless, but it appears that I'll need an additional $30 Xbox Wireless Adapter to make it work with PC
I didnt really look into wireless headsets because they are not my preference.
