NOTE: This is not my video, shoutout to Mark Perez for making such a great video on making this amazing guide to installing macOS on the XPS9360. The only difference from that to this is this is Catalina 10.15.1.

NOTE: This is also not my Source file, shoutout to the-darkvoid, for making a great folder of many supported features, drivers, kexts, and more to make this guide for Catalina happen!

I mean, how about the CPU/computer's temperature?
CPU Temps are kind of hot but ok for productive work, not sure about gaming though.

Your Laptop is showing 16gb because the guy who made the GitHub had 16gb but heres a video to fix that. I'll have the video up within 10 mins
