  1. Thank you such an informative post! Will be receiving my Inspiron 7373 shortly.

    Looking at the pictures, I seem to see 2 soldered on RAMs. I would assume that the 8GB comes as 2 x 4GB, therefore being a Dual Channel RAM?

  2. No guarantee of PCI-E NVME drive at 512GB I’m afraid.
    I ordered a 7373 for Christmas in 16GB/512GB configuration.
    It came with an SK Hynix SC311…an M.2 SATA drive.

    Line item from Dell order shows as :
    1 400-ASRN 512GB Solid State Drive

    Oh well, gives me an upgrade path for daughter.

  3. In BIOS , NVME is listed as a bus type. The original shipped drive from DELL runs on the SATA bus.
    It separately and clearly in shows this information in the BIOS.
