I bought it a few days ago and at once updated BIOS to version 1.2.4. Unfortunately I have to say that I am disappointed a bit.
Starting takes much more time than in my old MSI GE62 2QF Apache Pro.
I was given a piece of advice by a member of one forum and unselected Secure Boot. It's much better but still far from satisfaction.
I have already informed Dell Support in my country and they say that Dell is working on a new version of BIOS. I hope they are.
Have you got the similar problem with yours ?

By the way does anyone have any SSD utility for Toshiba KXG50ZNV512G NVMe ?
If you have any question you can write to me. I stay at home until 1st July

I've just received e-mail from Dell Support with new firmware to Toshiba
You see last updated 17 April 2018 - today.
I think they have a lot of work with Alienware

Also I bought very similar configuration but I didn't install BIOS update, other drivers are updated. One thing which I don't need tobii eye tracking, I switch off. Samsung 960 EVO is set up as boot drive and boot is going fast, with face recognition is taking about 15 seconds after pressing on button.
Secure booth is on.
