XPS15 9510 (2021) Owner's Thread

Just got a Dell XPS 15 9510 from Amazon.

Anyone else owns this machine?

 

I have a few questions.

 

1. Is this space between lid and body by design (see attachment)? I don't have this on an older XPS 15 9550, but I suspect it might be intentional, so want to check if anyone else has seen smth similar or knows if this is an issue or not.

I can see smth similar on a pic from this review https://www.notebookcheck.net/Dell-XPS-15-9510-Review-Multimedia-Laptop-convinces-with-new-OLED-Panel.554277.0.html , but maybe not as accentuated ?

Just wondering if this is "normal" or I should return it. csm_rechts_3bb940d8e4.jpg 

2. Not related to the laptop itself, but rather purchasing on Amazon. Do I understand correctly, that I get warranty directly from Amazon (it was sold by Amazon directly), and not from Dell? Should I bother trying to transfer ownership? (Never bought a laptop on Amazon before, so I have no idea how this works)

Thanks @astrohip! Yeah, I figured this might be a common thing and probably not worth it to go through return/replace process since replacement will likely be quite similar. Just wanted to confirm if that was actually common, which it seems that it is based on your comment and the photo from review I linked above.

 

Doesn't seem like there are a lot of owners of recent (2021/22) XPS models here on the forums. I wonder if it might be worth it to merge this thread with the one you made for XPS 17 9710, and have one thread for both 15 and 17" variants.
