    Oh hey yeah.

    Discovered first hand how much ATI 10 series drivers hate ATI 11 series.


    I had to go ATI 10.6 to ATI 11.2 to ATI 11.5. I couldn't just go straight 11.5

    I should actually check and see which bios I'm running. I haven't updated it to my knowledge. I'm probably on 23 or older. I haven't updated drivers either.

    well 23 is the newest.

    02 was the oldest (or 03)

    06 was the last one that worked with home made recovery discs if you made them before 13

    then it goes 13 and 23 and something probably between 13 and 23.

    then there's 24 for a few random envy 14s that come back from repair (mine only was updated to 23 from the repair center)

    I just checked and it's F.13 that I have. I knew there was a 3 in there!

    So what do you guys think? Is it worth sandybridge and USB 3.0 to upgrade to the newer Envy?

    Plus new touchpad and gestures...


    IMO, considering how I paid only $580 for the Envy after cashbacks, no.

    If you dont have any specific use for USB 3.0, there is no value in upgrading to the refresh. I like my current E14, no major issue and the radiance screen definitely a keeper.

    Oh yeah, is the newer Envy gonna start out with the radiance? If not, this is definitely a keeper.
    Great, I thought I was the only person who had ordered semi early without a coupon. Nice to know someone else paid around the same amount. So many had coupons lol. Makes me feel like a bad shopper.
