    My mistake, it was 3:2, but for some reason I remember it being 16:9. Something about the bezels being off-balance. It didn't feel right.

    Welcome aboard Probie...glad you came out of the shadows - especially for your arms cache. Sorry I don't have an answer for you on the GB12 and 1809. It installed cleanly on my GB12 Lite first time. Sorry about that.

    Thanks, dstrauss! Happy to finally join the conversation and give some kind of purpose to my hoarding! It is odd that I seem to be the only GB12 owner with 1809 install issues. Maybe it was just a fluke, but to be safe I'll just try to prevent future updates. I can live without Windows Explorer Dark Mode (Classic Shell broke it anyway).

    Updates are such a nightmare since Windows 8 - two identical machines can go great and fubar on the same release - even on two Surface devices. If they can't get it right (consistent) on their own hardware, what's the hope for the rest of the industry.

    PS - it is NOT hoarding - it is keeping a selective number of backup options as they inevitably break down, like the 1809 failure on your GB12...:rolleyes::cool:

    Variety is the spice of life. I have a different thinkpad for every day of the week at this point.

    Anybody having issues with stylus right click (either using 'hold pen button and tap' or 'press and hold tip') in Chrome or Edge on the SGB? It's not behaving like it does on my Surface Pro. I'm not using AutoHotkey or the Wintab driver and all the Pen and Touch settings in Control Panel are checked. Firefox and Edge seem to work with press and hold though.

    With the AHK Spen hack by Serega, Firefox seems to work best with stylus hover right click, not so much with the other two browsers.

    Touch works as expected though.

    Went ahead and ordered the NKMOS AirStand (black). Should arrive next week. Will report my findings then!

    Amazing - except for adding a little bulkiness, I can see gluing that thing permanently to the back cover of the GB12 folio and never having to play origami again...looking at their site right now.

    UPDATE - I ordered one as well for my GB12 Lite, which I may be using for a while (again) because neither HP nor FedEx can now find my Elite X2 - it is apparently lost somewhere between China and Memphis...

    Put on its blue HP shoes
    And boarded the Chinese plane
    Touched down in the land of the Delta Blues
    In the middle of the pouring rain
    Hewlett & Packard, won't you look down over me
    Yeah, I got a first class ticket
    But I'm as blue as a boy can be

    Then my tablet's walking in Memphis
    Walking with its feet ten feet off the warehouse
    Walking in Memphis
    But do I really feel the way I feel?

    Saw the ghost of X2
    On Union Avenue
    Followed it up to the gates of Graceland
    Then I watched it walk right through
    Now security they did not see it
    They just hovered 'round its tomb
    But there's a pretty little GB12 thing
    Waiting for the King
    Down in the Jungle Room

    When X2 was walking in Memphis
    It was walking with its feet ten feet off the warehouse
    Walking in Memphis
    But do I really feel the way I feel?

    Awesome, hope the stand works out for both of us. Sorry to hear about your X2 though.

    Thanks - no problem on the X2 - I'm practicing my sour grapes routine and just imagining it is no better than my Spectre Folio or Surface Book 2 experience, and I'll either end up back with the GB12 Lite or not returning the SB2. When it comes to computers I am cursed worse than Boston fans before the broke the Curse of the Bambino
