Why don’t you use Dell MPP for extra 10% or new signup coupon for extra 15%? Either is cheaper than the price you posted.frugaleconomist wrote: ↑ This is the lowest price I've seen for this build of the Dell XPS15. It's $350-off right now, but after chatting with the sales rep, I was able to bring the price further down to $1959.99 or about 20% off the regular price of $2499.99. It's the 2019 model, but at this point many of the kinks should have been ironed out with bios updates. Also it is ready to ship on 8/3!

This model has completely redesigned internals so hopefully the thermal issues that plagued the previous versions will be resolved. I have a 9560 too and agree with it being the best laptop I ever owned.bargain man wrote: ↑ I have the 9560 version of this laptop , and overall it's a good machine.
There are just a couple things I would like to highlight.
1. Thermal issues, if you plan to game on this then thermal throttling/shutdowns will occur. I tried many different thermal paste/pad applications and found that thermal grizzly kryonaut worked best. It still heats up quite a bit under load and will require undervolting to control temps.
2. Mic Array: if you are working from home and take calls using the laptop mic/speakers, then this simply won't work for you. I am extremely disappointed in the mic performance, and the only way users can hear me on calls is if I lift up the laptop and place the mic directly in front of my face. A headset is definitely required.
other than that, the laptop has been great for me in the 2.5 years I've owned it. The battery is starting to degrade and only lasts me 3-4 hours vs the 7-8 when new.

I'm interested in the new XPS as well but with regards to the heat, can't you put this on low power mode to limit the heat generated to use on the lap? I presume you can use the MBP cause Apple throttles it more so?ericw wrote: ↑ While this is a good deal but the new XPS 9500 with 16:10 screen looks so much better.
I have a 9570 and I am so tempted to upgrade...
One problem I have with dell xps in general is the bottom vents.
it does get hot and your laps block the vents easily if you dont use them on a desk.
I ended up using my macbook pro on my laps most of the time and the xps hooked up to tv and an eGPU as a desktop replacement.

Actually MBP do not throttle more than XPS. MBP will allow it go full speed and 100C while XPS throttle quickly and drops the frequency to about 3.1GHz.

Yes, you can use Dell Power Manager APP to change it to COOL mode.
