Thank you @Richylitschy Do you recommend finding a XPS with 7th or 8th gen cpus ? Also on my 9343 it's recommended to go for the QHD screen as it's possible to disable the adaptive brightness via firmware upgrade... but not on the HD version of the screen... is it the same for the 9360 ?
I have the I5-7200u FHD variant, dont know the generation. Tbh its even snappier than my work MBP 2017, everything works as it should be. But consider that I only do office stuff, no media production.
You can also disable CABC (adaptive brightness) on the FHD variant, but you need to do it on windows. Dell released a tool last year. I would go for the i5 FHD tbh, as its cheap as hell and the battery lasts me with safari and office for 8-10 hrs daily.

@Richylitschy Could please post your EFI folder ? Also did you replace the wifi with a DW1560 ?

I'm trying to find a laptop with same specs as yours


Thanks!

Sorry a small question on CABC - I have a DELL XPS 9360 FHD with Sharp 1449 screen.

I've disabled CABC with the firmware update but got the FW update failed looping with messages "loop:1, err:1"... did anyone see a similar thing ? Last DELL Intel driver was installed. CABC seems disabled even if the update failed... but I'm a bit OCD about failed FW updates...

Hey guys, just realised that my webcam seems to be reported in use, after wake on Mojave. So for example, if I open photo booth, it will report that "There's no connected camera", and clicking the "Camera" menu bar, shows that FaceTime HD camera in use tried to kill all processes related to camera, but sill no luck. Is anyone having the same issue? Thankss

You can find my EFI Folder a few pages back in this thread

I have an Apple USBC to Ethernet adapter, was wondering if it should be visible under the Thunderbolt section in System Information. It does work
in Ubuntu FWIW

and last question for today how many Watts do you get in the intel power gadget...i'm around 2, but I recall my XPS 9343 doing 0.80...

I have a I5 7200 CPU

Thanks everyone for the help and support so far, I do have a working system just trying to squeeze a little more out of it..


@maxchen @Richylitschy @Coletz What it your watt consumption when idle ? I have try the latest darkvoid repo and Richylitschy config too... but at best I reach 1.70W

pkg at 0.7W. You need to use the USB-C fix from the dark void repo on GitHub. This is also in my EFI, so if you used my whole EFI without updating anything, you should have the same draw. Btw turn off your touchscreen and the sd card reader in BIOS, it saves you a little bit and it may be the culprit.
