Full disclosure: Sitting at the airport with MBP and my own Dell Latitude 7370 in my bag. Also Dell is the best computer company of all time. True fact.

I did exactly that. Ordered the DC jack port from Amazon with 2 day shipping just now since I can’t wait another full week to have them “get through their back log.”

Need to practically disconnect everything inside (battery, WiFi card, antenna cable, remove the entire display from the rest of the body, etc etc etc)

... but shouldn’t have to go through this bullshit for 2 weeks previous to today to get a working laptop up again. Especially at the premium price point of the XPS 15.

The DC jack - which is the likely culprit from some diagnostics that said the battery had “excellent health and it couldn’t recognize the charger” - was only a $10 part. The charger is $90........ and the laptop was $2k and I’m a whopping 5 months in. I really shouldn’t be paying for any of this.





Horrible CS. The first person said at the end, “OK well I’ll personally be taking care of this issue until it’s resolved. I just emailed you my contact info and don’t hesitate to reach out.”

I reached out all right....... and was bounced around to a total of 7 people now, and I’m not exaggerating.

The PC itself is still loads better than my MBP it replaced... but ffs.

What'd you end up buying? Cheap PCs are garbage, no matter what manufacturer. You couldn't give me an Inspiron (Dell), but the Latitude/XPS lines are really nice for the money.

Supposedly we can get MBPs again and trade in our Dells (the image on my 7370 is really weak), but I'm not super jazzed about that either. The new ones are just not good

Man that blows Bill.

Gotta admit though, one of the upsides to buying windows laptops for me is I buy em used and dont rely on a warranty or anything... got a Latitude 7470 for like 800 bucks last yr with everything it can possible come with.

Yeah, that's a very nice little machine. Mine is a rung down (m7 vs i7 ?), might be smaller though, I can't recall. It's a bad image in my opinion (and many other professional former support dorks), but I forced a GPO update last time I was in the office and it's been pretty good since.

Yeah 14", i7 6600, QHD touchscreen, etc... It as everyhting, so I am wondering if it even has M.2 PCIe... I need to rip it open and check it out one of these days.

I stopped using a desktop at home, I wanted everything on one machine... and I dont game, so I dont really need the power with how capable todays laptops are. So now this is it and I hook it up to a dock with 2 27" 2560x1440 monitors when I am at my desk. I've found it simplifies my life. I got sick of having 2 machines.
