    I'm using the very first "notch" which I believe is 125% scaling.

    Doesn't work because you can't mix 32-bit and 64-bit. If I had 32-bit Office, I could uninstall OneNote and install the standalone.

    Thanks for posting this. Was going crazy trying to troubleshoot my router. Connected on battery at 6mbps last night and this morning...plugged in and immediately up to 450mbps. Relieved to know that this seems to be an issue that affects many and 'should' be addressed quickly.

    Probably another 15 or so minutes before I get off the train, but battery update: 34% and just about hitting four hours. So anywhere from 6 - 8 hours is very realistic.

    I've got mine hooked up to a Seiki 4k TV and working smooth as butter.

    here you go. I made these icons feel free to use. if you need other icons you can find from deviantart.com search for "metrostation", those may not exactly match the color and size I used.

    Oh I'm totally confused about the processor frequency management policy...Each time I play a online video (Chrome..you know, takes a lot of CPU..), the frequency drops down to around 1GHz and other tasks become slow...As soon as I pause the video the frequency goes up above 2GHz....Why not the opposite?...

    And there seems to be no way to configure my own detailed power management profile...

    How is it now, have you try to play a movie(even 720p) without making any kind of re encoding and open with the above player(I'm not using the default windows player because doesn't support Greek subtitles :p)
    Do I have the ability for full screen mode at least with the aspect ratio settings of the player.
    This is my only concern about 3:2 aspect of SP3.

    Now I see wifi speed quite stable with 5Ghz network. Try install ALL the updates (I counted 31 :]) and upgrade router firmware as well.

    And I am quite positively surprised at the SP3's audio quality. I cannot hear any white noise even using my IEMs - the very first time for me with non-apple laptop....
