Any Experience with hi res Dell XPS 15" portable?

Recently, I purchased and have been using the new Dell XPS 15" - 9530 with QHD 3200 x 1800 resolution screen. The screen comes with Gorilla Glass for greater resistance to breakage.

The resolution is pretty awesome but it needed extensive configuration and calibration out of the box as it was wildly over saturated. That resolved I have had some discussion with Dell about the reflectivity of the screen which especially on darker colors hinders good post processing.

Question 1. Was yours poorly calibrated out of the box? After all, this model is intended in part to photographers.

Question 2. Does the Gorilla screen reflectivity negatively affect your post processing? I have even resorted to black foamboard at sides and behind me and tried working in a dark room. Even there the screen is so reflective so as to show a nice reflection of my face just from screen illumination.

Question 3. Any experience with Gorilla Glass 4 that dramatically reduces reflections? Has it been released yet?

Question 4. In anticipation of an answer above that it's not yet on the market, any good products that work as add-ons?

Thanks for any insight and/or experience!!!
