I've been browsing the internet a bit and I cannot find anyone stating that he/she can run Fedora on the lattest Dell XPS 15'. Is it ok, is it a lot of work ? Here are major specs:

  1. Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ [6th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ Quad Core (6M Cache, up to 3.5 GHz)]
  2. 15.6" 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) InfinityEdge touch
  3. NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M with 2GB GDDR5

Full specs from the vendor

While the model of you PC is some how important to run Fedora flawlessly if you provide specific hardware specs we can help you better. We need what is manufacture and model of your Video Card, Wifi and Ethernet card, any other hardware device information. For instants, Fedora will run fine with an Nvidia card but if you have and Intel and Nvidia video card there are config issues. Some broadcom cards have issues and you need to use nonfreen akmod-wl to install them after Fedora is installed, if you have a finger print device they have propietary drivers so normally won't work.

Well that helps, but on the specs it do not mention if it have the Dual Video Card, only the Nvidia, if so then it will run fine with noveau Linux open source driver you can install the Nvidia propietary driver. The wireless while it mention the model not sure what manufacture there are some information on the net, seems like it will work with aht10k but not sure.
