    May be battery life?
    cpu clock locked at different even step numbers?

    We will never know and as long as our EP121 is working smoothly ..no freeze boost faster when we need the extra ponies andfan speed controls better.

    I bet it fixes the turboboost problems, where the CPU locks to a certain speed.

    Just updated using the Easy Flash Utility built into the bios settings.

    Bios is build date mar 22 2011, so they've been sitting on this for a bit.

    Also, I just noticed I updated without my power adapter plugged in. Probably best if you don't do that. :/

    No changes as far as I can tell within the bios / settings / options.

    The only bios we know the reason is 401 for thermal policy.. We do not know why they have 501..now 601.
