    No but the drives are supported so long as you don't mind an additional password at startup.

    So I think I fixed the sticky touchpad left click. I opened the base cover, removed battery, and added two pieces of electric tape between the trackpad and the dome click switch. Somehow that seem to help the trackpad bounce back.

    However, I just found out that the headphone jack isn't working. Left side not working. Hopefully it's a software issue... Will look into drivers.

    It should ask you what you have plugged in so it can use the correct connections.

    I tried both headphone or headset. I'd select the appropriate headphone or headset setting, but it'd only play sound on right side. I could kind of hear left channel when the headphone is pullled out slightly.

    Agree with you about matte screen. I running mine laptop (9560/UHD/16GB/512GB) for one week, I missing matte screen ... but ordered matte screen protector so i'll get rid of that glare very soon + I have external matte display - so not hurts very much until ordered screen protector arrival.

    The one thing I can disagree with you - you're blaming windows about horrible scalling in "some apps" ??
    Are you joking? Are you really developer/programmer? It seems like your knowledge just little above zero about how scaling in apps appear. Its not operating system draw apps. It apps itself arrange their controls e.t.c. Properly developed app doesn't have scaling problems at all... it just not scaled by OS ... it scaled (taking into account current DPI settings) by design ... . Please blame programmers who does apps even not bother about others who have higher than 92dpi displays. Bless to MS they implemented automatic stretch for that badly designed apps so we can use high-res displays. Of course you'll notice side-effect of that stretch - just like you zoomed low-res picture by scale-factor.

    You don't need C6/C7 states
    As C8 - is replacement for those C6 and C7
