  1. talking about compare it to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0pO7DWIfR6Y - nice summary in that video. same story: xps 15 is a nice device, thermals are an issue.
  2. well there is broken and there is broken. maybe someone is brave enough to do an ifixit tutorial to improve on it
  3. theres another nice review at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fHz3gwW_ZQ its still hard to say whats what somehow. probably since there is not much similar hardware around to compare it to
  4. The simpler way might be starting without docker. With databases you need to be very careful with volumes and and directories so messing around with docker containers does not cause loosing data. You mainly need to make sure mysql connects to the correct (or simply all) network interface(s) and the user you create in the database is allowed to connect from anywhere. There are Stackoverflow answers to help with that: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/12358197/mysql-networking-issue - make sure the bind-address is set and the users are allowed to connect (use '%' (any remote host) instead of 'localhost' to allow remote connections when creating users in mysql) If you want to look in the manual: Bind-Address: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/server-options.html#option_mysqld_bind-address Create User: https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/create-user.html don't forget to reload users after creating them (FLUSH PRIVILEGES;)
  5. There are some mentions of cooling issues at ultrabookreview and on the western gents united youtube channel. Both talk about no visible changes - that does not mean no changes. But 6 core cpu's and a new gpu? therefore a new chipset? they probably modified something but that still could mean they ran into the same issues - or decided to not entirely fix them as the target users don't usually put heavy load on for hours. flat notebooks seem to starve sooner related to cooling? Some compromises will usually be in such devices. The guy on youtube claims the throttling is there but performance wise he does not notice (quite a lengthy video - but looks promising). The Service Manuals if you want to have a look (assuming Dell updated the pictures...): http://topics-cdn.dell.com/pdf/xps-15-9570-laptop_Service-Manual_en-us.pdf http://topics-cdn.dell.com/pdf/xps-15-9560-laptop_Setup-Guide_en-us.pdf Even with thermal throttling at some point I would put it into a cool device section
  6. Could be anything at this point :-/ Have you tried booting from an external usb drive? Also Ubuntu for example in the installer menu comes with some test tools for your ram. The next guess would be a device that fails when the driver is loaded or starts doing things. you would need to install as few drivers as possible and then one by one. Sadly Apple hardware behaves differently for Windows and Ubuntu. So the MacOS safe mode might be your best chance to figure something out.
  7. Lately I tried to run Ubuntu native on an older MacBook Pro (2013). Expected the worst but was actually quite positively surprised. Although I switched back (mainly the intel gpu could not be detected or switched and the battery life was really bad). But it got me curious. Dell offers the developer edition laptops. Some with Core i7 or even Xeon E3. So I wonder how those officially supported machines compare to Windows on the same hardware regarding performance, battery life and practicality.
  8. "fishtank" for obvious reasons: (air cooled, no water or mineral oil madness, no fish have been harmed for this build, they are all happy in there!)
  9. *wooot* only 4?! Thats not even a handful! You need to step this up a notch or six And hell show windows boot if you talk about booting. How dare you. Thats a nice one. Not sure if he booted from that. But definitively closer to replace ram with persistent storage - if that is a goal somehow.
