    Just got myself one and loving it! Btw, are you guys facing some blurry text on some programs? Easiest example would be the text in the Synaptics settings GUI.

    HELP!!!

    I'm on Windows 10 with 360 i7/8GB/512GB. The audio has been stuttering and popping...and I'm talking about the system sounds and going from there. Sometimes it will pop when there aren't any sounds coming out.

    I'm on Realtek HW Audio Codec Driver 6.4.10041.127 and Intel SST Driver 8.4.2.105.

    Any tips? I've already deactivated the DTS, etc...and I dont' want to ruin the speakers.

    Help!!

    Change scaling to not be a partial perecentage, for example, 100% or 200%. Partial percentages do not work well for some win32 apps.

    Thanks for the tip! Oddly, I just checked the touchpad GUI and it looks pretty crisp (could be my eyes!). Though it's true some other apps have scaled fonts kind of poorly for me. I'm at 125% BTW.

    Are there any particular recommended settings to increase battery life?

    My i5 model lasts about 3-4 hours on a night. I read somewhere Chrome was battery intensive, is that true?

    I use a Bible study application (SwordSearcher) and the text is a bit blurry in it. I'm hoping the developer may optimize for higher resolution displays. Mine is QHD and I'm using it scaled to 125% (been reducing it gradually towards 100% as I get used to each level so I'll have more screen real estate). My other apps all look crisp, many just have small menus!

    I like my Spectre x360 more every day - it's an awesome workhorse that switches to a nice toy when the work is done ;)

    100%?

    You must have great eyesight. Moving to 100% will get rid of that blur most likely.

    I agree 100%.

    Actually, make that 125%!!!

    I managed with 100% scaling just fine with this laptop. Definitely recommended if your eyes are up to the task (I technically cheat because I wear prescription glasses 24/7 so my eyesight with them should be almost perfect).
