    So you were able to do it without leaving a single trace?

    By single trace.. if you are going all CSI on this, no..

    It's going to be ok. Take the sticker off, rub your oily nose with your finger, and rub your finger where the sticker was, and wipe that off.

    Wala! No sticker mark. Magic.

    Those who have issues with touchpad sensitivity. From the Control Panel > Mouse Properties > Pointer Options > Select Mouse Speed option: slow -------------fast I selected abit faster option than the default and it helps as well.

    Enabling Touch Events fixed the touchpad delay in chrome!

    Go to chrome://flags/ and Enable Touch Events.

    I hope they add forward/backward gestures for the touchpad.

    So far im loving this laptop. What do you guys think of the matte screen compared with the Samsung Series 9?

    If your battery wore down for that much already I'd keep an eye on it, but have you actually checked it on day one? Batteries have a designed capacity that differs from what every single actual battery has when it leaves production. No two batteries are the same, so yours could just have left production with those 50.2 Wh and actually have zero wear up to now.

    BatteryBar Pro tells me mine has .6% wear (that's 52.262 Wh) and has been the case since I've received it.

    I received a replacement system today and I am noticing a few differences.

    The screen...
    On the old system, I notice whites are a lot cooler with that blueish tint. On my new system if favors a warmer color. I usually notice this a lot with cellphones and I guess it has to do with companies acquiring parts from a few different sources?

    Also my old system had this annoying and laughably loud creaky noise when handled from day 1. No creak on this new one.

    Wouldn't it be cheaper to order it from the US and ship it to yourself?

    That's what I did, since I'm in Saudi Arabia. I'm American so I wanted to make sure I had a US keyboard and I needed US power (110V). I was also able to use US coupon codes. If ordering from MicrosftStore.com, I can use student discount of 10%.

    I use a service called US Global Mail to do all my overseas shipments. I order from Amazon all the time for stuff I can't get here in the Kingdom. A mail forwarding service, while an cost, is the perfect solution.

    That's a viable solution if you don't care about warranty

    I noticed the same exact thing when I got my replacement (QHD+). The screen on my initial machine has a cooler tint... the replacement had a much much warmer tint (far too warm for my liking). I ended up keeping my initial machine since I felt the whites were a lot whiter and the screen was more crisp. I also noticed some wavy lines on the replacement machine if you look from an angle that aren't there on the initial machine. I know all screens differ a bit, but the difference was extremely significant in this case. I'm assuming they have more than one source for the screens.

    I remembered all screen should be manufactured by IGZO or something
