        Dell's might not be the best looking, best specs having laptops, but mine still is running strong after almost 8 years. And I really appreciate a long lasting product.

                                        Linus, if you ever buy Dell be advised that they have the WORST customer support ever.
                                        I've bought a Dell XPS 15 9560 in August 2017, spent 2.010€ and it came faulty from fabric with a lot of anomalies and I've been battling with them since then to get my refund. It's in court yet...
                                        They made talk to 10 different persons over the phone, I spoke to "supervisors" that stopped answering me out of nowhere over e-mail.
                                        I got it repaired by Dell 2 times and it stayed the same, after the 2nd repair it didn't turn on anymore.
                                        It has one of the most gorgeous designs overall and nice specs for sure, but if anything is to happen it will turn your life into a nightmare.

It's called 'fat bloom' and while doesn't look amazing is just where the fat has come to the surface probably because of the chocolate being stored in a less than optimal place, like the back of someone's drawer (where I'm guessing this one was :D).

Goodness help you if it gets snagged and rips at the laptop guts and ruins the dongle.

I don't understand this fascination - yes, it's convenient in that all cables work with all devices but that's pretty much it. Still need to carry multiple chargers and cables.
