    I just got the Ativ Book 8 - US version at Best Buy.
    I returned the 1st one because the track pad was lower on the right side (right click area).
    I got an exchange unit and looked at the track pad and it was good.
    But I noticed yesterday that a spot was wearing on the bottom near one of the fan vents.
    It seems there is a bulge in the bottom of the case that extends beyond the rubber feet causing it to rub when sitting on a flat surface.

    Should I return this one too, or am I being too picky?!

    I used Company of Heros 2 performance test to test the video drivers. I used the Samsung factory drivers, the 13.10 beta 1 and 13.11 beta 1.

    I got 18.03 fps with the Samsung drivers, 17.6 fps with the 13.10, and 17.9 fps with the 13.11.
    (880z5e, win 8.1)

    So I see no difference in using the Samsung video drivers.

    I got the 880z5e from US Best Buy. One had a low right corner of the track pad. The exchange one has a bulge in the bottom near a fan vent that contacts a flat surface like one of the rubber feet. I'm thinking of exchanging that one too.

    Mine has the same problem. The spot is right below the HDD and the wifi chip.

    I "fixed" it by putting some transparent tape on the spot that started to get scratched really badly.

    I have the same problem after an update from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. SW Update keeps ending with:

    Sound Driver Essential Installable 463MB Failed(-10)

    Did you find a solution?

    First try reinstalling Samsung's Settings program. The installation process includes system software optimisation.

    If that doesn't fix anything then temporarily install Soluto and let it figure out what is taking up all the time. Some anti-virus programs do a scan as part of the boot process.
