MX-17 on Dell XPS 13

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Sun Dec 31, 2017 11:32 am

Woot! I have had this machine reserved for work only, when proprietary software was required. BitJam has had it working for a while, I know, but he had to futz around a bit. Now with MX-17 it's a piece of cake, and it seems like everything works OOTB:

I would love an XPS 13, but used prices here are just too much. I keep waiting for them to come down in price on ebay, but no luck so far.

Good to know MX-17 runs well on them.
