Pressing F12 on boot up will bring you to a boot menu where you can do many things such as diagnose problems, flash your BIOS, recover the OS, or enter the BIOS. The UEFI BIOS has a mouse, but keyboard control is also present, and the BIOS/UEFI looks more like a Windows program than a BIOS/UEFI.

You can monitor battery level and health and easily configure boot options. Although, you can't really add in any other internal storage device.

Everything from audio control to keyboard lighting and the ability to disable the touchscreen is available.

Dell Update compliments the rest of the notebook's software. Dell Customer Connect allows you to reach out to Dell, or rather for Dell to reach out to you.
