  2. Looks good. Though for the price of the XPS with the i7 in it, you could get a Precision with similar specs and better overall build quality. Most consumer grade machines are constructed all from plastic and really cheap metals, if any at all. The commercial grade Precisions are made out of aluminum, magnesium, and another metal I believe.

    IFA 2017: Dell unveils mixed reality headset, new laptops, and 2-in-1s

    Resolution during 360 viewing

    Good Day, In a nut shell, my resolution during viewing of youtube 360 videos seems limited to 480 when using Mixed Reality compliant headgear. I don't think this is a simple answer.

    1) The network tests at 20Mbs at this computer and using Edge and the Microsoft 360 Viewer (outside of VR) a resolution of 2160s (4K) flows smoothly after initial buffering and fills this 25" monitor nicely. A great experience so it seems the data is arriving
    quickly enough.

    2) The VR hardware I have is a new DELL Inspiron, with 32GB RAM, AMD Ryzen 7 1800X @ 3.6GHz, AMD Radeon RX 580 graphics. This system is using new DELL Mixed reality headset and controllers. The Microsoft Mixed Reality PC Check utility gives it solid marks.
    Seems like the hardware is set.

    3) From the Microsoft Store segment for 360 Viewer the following dialog is presented which implies the VR environment should start but alas it does not. I'm not sure what the "Mixed Reality icon" is that I'm looking for. Is it the Mixed Reality Portal Icon?
    If so then that too does not seem to work.

    "Note: you can navigate to a website in Microsoft Edge on your desktop (not in Edge in the Cliff house), play a 360 video and click on the Mixed Reality icon. This will automatically launch Windows Mixed Reality and start playing the 360 video in your
    headset as long as you have your headset plugged into your PC."

    What am I missing?

    Thanks, Marty

    I just got an Inspiron 15 5577. I'm impressed. It has a 7th gen i5, 8GB RAM and a 256 M.2 SSD. Its sold as a "gaming" laptop. I won't be using it for gaming but will be using it in my recording studio for "on site" recordings. I got rid of McAfee and a couple other things. Resplendence Latency Mon shows no problems and visually it loads as fast as my Desktop DAW system which is an i7 6700K and a 500GB SSD. I'm not a fan of laptops due to the keyboards but this one is speedy. Having a "Plastic" case does not bother me as it won't be mistreated.

    FWIW, I use Cakewalk Sonar (Platinum) for my recording studio DAW program.
