"I could get a standard XPS13 and a new intel 8260 wireless module right away.

The one I have now is the "Developer Edition" version that didn't need any surgery to just work."

Hacking WD Greens(and Reds) with WDIDLE3.exe | FreeNAS Community
from hdparm manpage: "The factory
default is eight (8) seconds, which is a very poor choice for
use with Linux. Leaving it at the default will result in hun‐
dreds of thousands of head load/unload cycles in a very short
period of time. The drive mechanism is only rated for 300,000
to 1,000,000 cycles, so leaving it at the default could result
in premature failure, not to mention the performance impact of
the drive often having to wake-up before doing routine I/O.

WD supply a WDIDLE3.EXE DOS utility for tweaking this setting"
