Dell XPS 15 9550 Blue Screen

I just got this new Dell XPS 15 9550 2 days ago (10-Aug-16) and it has already crashed 4 times with blue screen.
After the first BSOD, I thought it was due to outdated drivers. But then I updated all drivers to latest including updated BIOS. Then I ran a system diagnostic test from the Dell support page. Second BSOD occurred while running diagnostics. Today I just turned on the computer and it crashed with BSOD while just sitting idle. The I ran a second diagnostic test. This time, the diagnostics ran successfully except two.

Integrated Webcam                    Edge Detection      Test Failed
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M    Block Move Test     Cannot Run

The BSOD were CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED or UNEXPECTED_STORE_EXCEPTION.

The system just seems so unstable to do anything serious on it..
Is this laptop worth keeping or should I just return it? How does the 9550 work for others?
