  1. Hey Everyone, I have a 2018 Dell XPS 15 9570, ordered it directly from dell back in August 2018. The past couple of months the battery has been acting weird. It'll work great from 100% down to 45% or so lasting its normal time, and then once it gets to about 40% it will randomly say "low battery, 5%" and then run for a little bit and shut off. I can turn it back on as if battery is not dead, but it will still say 5% and repeat the shutdown after 10 mins or so. I haven't used this laptop a huge amount, I have a desktop I spend most of my time on, so this battery doesn't
  2. Well it isn't available to buy until July 22nd so no ones tested it yet. As long as your not looking to overclock much then it seems like it'll be a good decent x570 mATX board.
  3. Well I'm currently looking at laptops to buy for college and the XPS 15 has been a big contender on my list. Hearing about your fulfillment problem is not very encouraging
  4. How do you like the gaming chair?
  5. The screen started blacking out after about a month, would only work in one specific position and if you moved it just barely the screen went black again. Troubleshot it and went as far as taking it apart and making sure the display cable was properly connected to the mobo. Didn't really help. It was(I still have it, although never use it) a Asus N550J. I can agree with not rushing to get a laptop now, I have no need for one this summer, so at a minimum I can wait till the beginning of August. I don't really expect any new laptops to come out by then, but hey maybe they'll be a
  6. I did that a few years ago with what I considered a pretty nice ASUS laptop(spent about $800 on a refurb on Newegg) and majorly regret it. Might've just been my luck, but I'm definitely buying new this time.
  7. I just realized the laptops 40% off its starting price for small business month(I assume its only for small business month?) , so I would need to buy it this month if I want it
  8. I'm not to current on CPU news, when's that supposed to happen? I need to have a laptop by August.
  9. Thanks. I think I should stick to pure engineering laptops, I intend to bring my desktop pc to my dorm so if I ever want/have time to do gaming I'll have it for that. I'm really liking the Precision 7520, although to get an SSD and upgrade to a quadro 2200 it would take me a bit over $1500, but I do have some wiggle room on the budget. Mechanical Engineering. Programs like Matlab, solidworks, autoCad, etc. Not 100% sure all be using all those in my classes, but I want to experiment on my own as well.
  10. Been awhile since I've been on this forum, anyways, I'm headed off to Engineering School in the fall, & looking to get a laptop sometime this summer before I head off. My budget is around $1500. I want to be able to do things like 3D modeling, maybe some video editing and light gaming, but mostly focused on Engineering type things, and in a thinner profile, as I will be carrying this around campus...Ideally would like to have 16gb of RAM along with an SSD(would be nice to have an SSD & HDD, but I can definitely deal with just an SSD). There's a LOT of laptop options out th
  11. Is there any other way the program could I gotten on there? I will re confirm to make sure it's never been used for work, if it has, it would have been for nothing more then remoting into an office desktop, but I'm pretty sure it hasn't even been used for that. As far as the reinstall, that's a last resort.
  12. Okay so I just got onto my parents computer because they complained about it being slow. I checked how full the HDD is, it says they've used a good 650gb. Well, considering the only thing they do on there is web browsing, excel files and some photos, this didn't make any sense. So I downloaded a file scanner to see what was taking up all the data. Here's what it found Under program data, in the folder iecache, there is a folder called nspscr. It alone is taking up 433.4gb! Upon looking that folder up, it looks like it could be a program called "Net Spy Pro" as it
  13. Are you actually a sea plane pilot?

      Ahhh, well darn. I'm in flight training so it caught my eye when I saw that by your name.

  14. I'm still on the line about whether to cancel. I just found out about this so I don't want to cancel and then regret it the next day since theres not really any other phones out I want that I've seen.
