    The "Other User" is a known issue with the OOBE Phase of setup, somehow there was a batch of SBs that didn't complete the reset after the last OS QA Pass, a reboot usually completes the reset.

    Alright. I feel better. Ha-ha. Been loving it so far. One slight issue where after reattaching the screen it froze up and I had to reboot. Is that still happening for others? If so I'll just assume it's a software issue that'll be ironed out.

    Before I return my SB, I'm curious if anyone else is continuing to have the same issues as I have?

    i7/512GB/16GB (the first batch 1542)

    1) video driver crashing
    2) when one sets the prompt to ask before swapping between tablet and desktop mode, do you regularly get prompted even though there's no reason for the prompt? (Yes, I know I can turn it off, but I would think it's either a bug in the software, or could be tied into the driver issue or some connection issue between the tablet and the keyboard base - I've checked to ensure it's clean there too).

    All updates have been applied, which has sorted out some issues including slow reset on wifi when waking up, improved responsiveness on the trackpad and overall responsiveness.

    video driver still crashes even on the SP4... so that will prob take some more time to nail out.

    According to MS tech support - "They've not heard of an issue..." - not surprising.

    According to the answers.microsoft.com site, there will be another Surface update this week to address the issue.

    has anyone come up with a new color profile? Or is the stock one the most accurate? Also, anyone try the new pen tips yet? Hopefully one day they'll be back in stock.
