    Has anyone found a usb-c (m) to USB-a (f) adapter that will power a standard 10/100 ASiXS Ethernet adapter, or a cheap usb-c Ethernet adapter that works.
    Does this tabley need a powered USB hub to connect an USB to Ethernet adapter.

    Just installed Windows 10s and the HP608 is like a different machine, so much more responsive. All the drivers are working no issues.

    Is there anything available now in the USA that's like this HP tablet (8" screen, Windows 10)?

    How did you do that? Why is it more responsive?
    I have some old atom tablets that have really slowed down to the point of being unusable on Windows 10. I wonder if 10s could bring them back to life.

    I'm on 1.06 BIOS - no touch screen lag issue.

    I thinking about carefully updating BIOS.
    So I have a question:
    do you think that absent of HP's "Prevents the BIOS from being rolled back to an older version" or "Due to security changes, after this BIOS update is installed, previous versions cannot be reinstalled." disclaimer/note in BIOS update files description is reliable?

    I plan to update to 1.07 (considered lag-free), but this version can't be rolled back ("Prevents the BIOS from being rolled back to an older version" - but is not clear that for this version only or for every future versions?).

    Then I plan to update to 1.09 (considered as probably with a touchscreen bug) and this version don't have any above disclaimers - so theoretically could be downgraded.
    Same for 1.10, 1.12 and 1.13.

    The next version with non-downgrade note is 1.15.

    What do you think?
    It is safe to update to 1.09 and still have option to downgrade?

    Hello,

    Injust got mine 608, great machine except this screen lag.

    I'm wondering if there is any way ti downgrade bios from 1.18 to 1.06?
    I cant even find exe file for this old bios.

    Thank for that link. I just tried it. Unfortunately, even I had warning about downgrade its still 1.18 bios version.

    What I found is that in bios setting there is no touch lag issue. It seems to be higher software level problem like windows or drivers.

    I'm wondering how that would work with Windows 8.1.
    Do we have anyone here with 8.1 and Bios > 1.06?

    Is possible to downgrade my win 10 to 8.1?

    Also, anyone with Linux experience on hp 608? I'm wondering how touch is working here.
