    Dell Inspiron 15 7590 2in1 (i7-8565U, 16GB RAM, Nvidia MX250 GPU, 500GB SSD with 32GB Optane cache, 4K touch screen that can fold all the way back like a tablet, active stylus). Great machine for my needs, both leisure and school, updates Windows far faster that most cheaper machines, etc... I upgraded from a kludgy custom Celeron based PC that required Windows 7 to be remotely usable.

    I have the same exact laptop!! It seems nice so far but I haven't used it much yet. I got it to see if I would wean off my beloved W7 PC! So far I have not! It was a laptop upgrade from an high-end HP Pavilion with Vista sitting in a closet for 10 years!!! Never liked it. rarely used it.

    My S8 battery is showing small signs of wear so I am thrilled to find this thread. I had no idea I was not supposed to let it get down below 30-40%. I also have burn-in from Google Maps. I can see pink-red navigation icons faintly on a white screen. I was told (lectured) by verizon reps at Best Buy that I should downgrade the screen brightness, turn off display while using maps (huh?), and use dark mode as much as possible - less wear and tear on pixels... no color better than any color.

    Can't wait to check out those battery health apps. Will report back.
