    Same for me, updating now. Thanks for the heads up! Glad it’s finally here, but annoyed it took them three freaking months to throw WOA users a bone. Come on Microsoft, do better!

    1903 installed without issues. Already enjoying it. A brightness slider in the Action Center, frickin' finally!!

    Update: one thing I noticed is that Edge Chromium Dev 78.0.249.1 is slow as molasses on 1903, at least on some pages. Switching to the ole' Edge, those same pages just absolutely fly. Hope they get telemetry on this, and that the next auto-update resolves whatever bottleneck 1903 introduced.

    @JoeS . You are right as I sit here typing this on our lab unit. It looks like what's happening is that 1903 is replacing some libraries that Chromium based Edge uses with the older "certified" ones. We opened a bug with MS about it but since it's still beta on the Chromium based Edge, i'm not sure what the response will be.

    One way to avoid this , though I don't recommend it, would be to join the MS insider fast ring for OS updates. Because it is a dev type build it wont replace anything newer regardless. However running the fast ring on these devices seems to be a bit of a rollercoaster ride. aka, proceed with caution :)

    Hi all, I have just updated my Book2 on Windows 10 Build 18970 (20H1) and it flies!! I don't recommend to do if your book is your daily driver but in my case I so hated 1903 version due to lags. There is huge improvement in terms of smoothness and all seems work fine.

    How is the battery life? I'm looking forward to a Book3 that isn't locked to AT&T for LTE, hoping we'll see one by the holiday season.

    Hi, it is comparable with what you can get on 1903. A full working day for sure and no draining issues. After couple days of using it I still haven't found any significant bugs. There are occasional crashes of the setting app but it run so much faster that you in the end spend less time.

    In my opinion the new Surface with next Gen Qualcomm that will presented on 2th of October will be better than Book3.
