FULL DISCUSSION
 

Hi, I have Dell XPS 15 with 32GB RAM and 512GB SSD. I develop under Windows and Ubuntu with dual boot. Battery is great but neither windows nor ubuntu works stable. First of all while ubuntu, battery goes only for 1 hour. And windows 10 has still lots of problems with this machines hardware such as wireless card, 4k screen. So that I use WSL under Windows 10 to get linux in my machine without sacrificing my hardware performs in virtualbox.

So at the end, I switch back to macbook pro. macos is a great os with bash. And If I want to build a docker swarm or kubernetes, I do not have to use hyper-v or any properitial vm solutions, virtualbox is just fine.

 

Thank you Onur! 32GB RAM is sweet!

Woah, this sounds like a bug somewhere! Maybe it can be solved. My computer has a battery that doesn't last much, but after 6 years :D

And windows 10 has still lots of problems with this machines hardware such as wireless card, 4k screen.

This is the stuff of nightmares :D Doesn't Dell test their hardware before selling it?

 

I follow these articles for installing and maintaining ubuntu.

and i can cross check my battery health when i switch back to windows. in that time, the battery goes about 6-8 hours.
