    any idea when the new quad core version based on the 8th gen intel mobile chip is likely to be released? The competitors products from Dell and Lenovo have already been announced. Thanks.

    Could you elaborate a bit more on your fresh windows install scheme? I just received a HP Spectre X360 13-AC003TU and had to do a factory reset due to a dodgy windows update (black screen after logon). Ever since its been a bit slow and windows update is now taking longer than ever. So I'm inclined to do a fresh install with minimal HP stuff. So far I have boiled it down to 2 methods:

    Method 1:
    - Create windows 10 installation USB using Media Creation Tool
    - Disable UEFI?
    - Run setup
    - Delete all partitions
    - Install Windows
    - Install HP drivers

    Method 2:
    - Use the Windows Refresh Tool
    - Install HP drivers

    Hi everyone. Been looking into new laptops, and the spectre x360 is on my radar among others.

    First question, does anyone have the new 8th gen with mx150 15 inch model? If so, how is it on gaming and heat?

    Next, is the thunderbolt 3 a proper TB3 port and not like on the xps line where it's not fully 4 lanes?

    Also anyone try an external graphics dock with it.

    I did a complete fresh install with Media Creation Tool.
    Did not disable UEFI.
    Deleted all partitions, inclusive recovery. (Made a backup to USB first)
    Installed Windows and Realtek sound drivers, all Intel drivers and Synaptics touchpad driver.
    Did not install any of the HP labeled drivers (e.g HP Wireless Button, not necessary, works anyway) and additional programs.

    Everything is working well.
