    Some benchmark results:
    Cinebench R15 CPU: 798
    Geekbench 4 Single: 4761
    Geekbench 4 Multi: 15816
    3DMark Fire Strike: 6262
    3DMark Cloud Gate: 21082

    The review also anwers my 1st question (@14:30).
    HP offers some limited remapping options, however it doesn't look like middle mouse button or custom key mappings are possible :(

    And WiFi is soldered on board unlike I assumed socketed based on the service manual (@20:40).

    Thank you Lisa! @MobileTechReview

    As I said no throttling issues so far and frankly I don't mind having the fans on full load if that is the price to pay for using the unit at full power.

    P.S. when I heard about the stunt Dell pulled with XPS in terms of thermal management I remember thinking that it might turn out well for your legs/lap but not so much for the CPU/GPU.
