  • Aha! So that's all the updates I got today. Very awesome, Microsoft! Thanks! :)
  • I love companies that continue to tweak their hardware. Once upon a time I had an HP tablet PC and they updated a few drivers in the first couple of months, then ignored it's users. The trackpad was virtually unusable upon release and fortunately they patched it a couple times during that brief window. But, the second patch introduced a bug, which they never fixed. These days their hardware looks impressive, but if their support is the same, well, best to steer clear. Lenovo is another company that supports their hardware long after release. We need to support and encourage these companies.
  • My firmware update fails to download / install from Windows Update - is there a way to download the firmware update separate ? (other updates installed perfect). The Book2 download page show only a 8-1-2018 version…

  • "Improving stability"? Since updating all the new firmware, I have never had so many BSOD's on my SB2.... I hope this improves over time...
  • So far so good. Install went smooth and 15" SB2 running fine so far.
  • Me too
