Thanks for posting that. I have a fairly dated Wireless N router, this made me look up its limitations and when I switched to channel bonding (40 mz) I was able to reach 90-100 mbps, which is good enough.

Did anyone else receive a defective unit?
The screen flickers / cuts out on mine during use and when tilting the screen back and forth

Yes, I have this issue, it doesn't cutout but there is minor flickering problem and dead pixel. I can live with the color but not the flicker. Too bad MS Store doesn't have stock for exchange. My panel is M140NWF5 R3.

Ordered two, one is defective. Hard drive (I'm guessing it the HD) on one laptop makes clicking noises all the time but the other is silent. Returning defective unit.

Is the Precision Touchpad software layer handled out of the box with this model and Win10 1709, or is this still needed? I guess you can tell by looking at the touchpad Settings area to see if it's the same as the screenshot. If not, I think but am not sure that it's Elan.

It's selling for $599 now. Try and get your $50 to those who already purchased.

This laptop sounds pretty ideal for me
for web browsing and doing light work related things.

However, sounds like there is quite a few things wrong with it though?? Screen display, wifi dropping out, hard drive defective??

I missed out.

Might go to store to buy.

Looking at the manual it looks like it has only one RAM slot.

Reg. yellow/orange tint, the laptop color is warm but I have adjusted the color settings in Intel Graphics Control utility and it seems to be okay now.
the major gripe I am having is some kind of chirping noise coming from the laptop randomly. Its so low, my wife is not able to hear it, but when its silent and when I work on it, I am able to hear it. Could it be coil whine ?

Did anyone try to reapply the thermal paste with arctic silver 5 / MX400? Just wanted to see if it was possible to do this and help reduce temperature slightly further.

I still have not returned mine if someone is interested. I bought it at the earlier price of $650 + tax. PM me if interested.
