Oh shit... My XPS 13 seems to slowly approach it's EOL :(

It has lost power 3 times already since yesterday. The last time it shut down while I was browsing BIOS (UEFI) settings, on a charger...

shit :(

Yes, I am drooling at the new XPS 7390 with advertised battery lifetime of 21 hour. But I'm so used to my lappy.

Shit :(

    Refiews claim they could reach 10-11 hours while doing the reviews + 4k video playing for the remaining time

    @siebe at least some yogas have soldered ram AND an empty dimm slot. Got one like that for my wife

    The dell latitude line is pretty decent. I prefer those. The keyboard is pretty good.

    if you need the horsepower - go for a precision. but for Battery life... you might want to get a low spec mac.

    @siebe that's very true, but also a lot better than most laptops these days lol

    I guess it comes down to which one has fewer faults lol

    Had 2, can confirm. Would not buy again. There's obvious basic consumer focus on the unit. Will run Manjaro though.

    @metamourge the dell workstation laptops and system76 laptops are good. Expensive though.

    @metamourge re: system 76
    PopOS! is greatness, the guys their really believe in their products. Just be careful with their laptops as all the System76 units are clevo/sager/eurocom, and they run the quality gamut.

    Top end units like the Clevo P775TM1-G are great (except the hinge and lack of dead pixel policy). Lower price units have 0 QA and you'll have trouble getting service from 76 on them as all they can do is return them to the factory in China. 2 weeks turnaround in the best case, no guarantee it will actually be fixed.
