Just spoke with an agent
I'm afraid that the offer was valid from November 27, 2017 to December 1, 2017, while supplies last. I have checked and we do not have any notice of it coming back in stock.

I never tried to replace a hard drive from a laptop before. Is it possible to open the hard drive area and replace without them knowing its been replaced? (Obviously switch if the laptop requires repair).
swapping a hard drive, replacing the wifi card and/or adding more ram does not void the warranty. they are trying to get you to buy extended warranty because that is where they make their money and probably commission too

Its probably more difficult to take the bottom cover apart than insert the M.2 SSD. Check the thread summary for service manual.

Probably the same 'noise issue' like it was in case with redflagdeals - [Microsoft Store] $449 Dell Inspiron 13 5378 . There were a lot complains concerning noise in the reviews on the Microsoft Store but it was fixed by the firmware update (presumably by raising temperature threshold for the cooler:). Anyway I'm more than happy with that laptop.

BTW, how is the battery life and CPU heating under the load? How many seconds can this CPU stay on the Turbo Boost frequency?

Didn't test battery. Can accepte the noise. No interesting it . Bought a MBA instead.
