    The new F.0F BIOS adds "support for future Windows operating systems." Having already put Windows 7 on my tablet, I personally haven't seen anything positive or negative from the update. Anyone with more noticeable improvement/problems with this combo?

    Same here, looks the same. Maybe some memory allocation changes...

    Before I updated, if I were to start the computer in tablet mode the keyboard wouldn't work until I restarted in laptop mode. This was fixed with the update. I don't know if it improved Windows 7 at all though.

    The keyboard issue may have been fixed with BIOS revision F.0B or a version before that, about 6-7 months ago, so there are officially no superficial changes we can see. I do notice I'm having sporadic issues with my Quick Launch buttons and auto screen rotation when I enter tablet mode. Nothing horrible like the keyboard bug, but a nuisance nonetheless.

    I think only you have this problem. I flashed to F.0F and have no problems at all. You can try disable it from bios and reflash it again with the same bios to see if it's working.

    Functionally the computer is fine, but I noticed a slower startup time the HP BIOS screen.
