I have a Dell XPS 9350 (Skylake), it does not have Nvidia graphics, and I'm contemplating putting FreeBSD on it. Before I decide to decommission my laptop for a time though, I want to ask if anyone has had success with it? I stripped out the Broadcom chip for the Intel...7265? AC wireless chip. I know it won't work over AC, that's okay I guess since my understanding is it requires some binary blob. If anyone can tell me, I would like to know:
- How's the battery life? With Fedora I get around 10 hours
- How reliable is sleep?
- How's the trackpad?
- Do all features work? Such as backlit keyboard, function keys
