    Any known dates for future firmware/software updates to address current remaining issues for the SP3?

    Exactly what do you see or have heard or the remaining issues with the various SP3s models at this time? I have a feeling my SP3 wifi speed is not as good as my SP2 but I need to do some benchmarks to prove whether it's true or not. We need a defined list of still known issues (problems).

    Wifi still to me the only real pendent issue.

    Performance/ Temperature can be improved by tuning the processor but for me it's not an issue.

    Correct. But Microsoft has not committed to release any specific fix that date.

    I think there are some outstanding battery life bugs that could be worked out. I'm not getting the kind of battery life I expected, averaging no more than 7 hours or so. That's not terrible, mind you, but not as good as I'd hoped. And I'm not doing anything terribly intense, so...

    Great question! :) Nope, I use IE 11 exclusively, and mostly modern IE (which I believe is the most frugal of the bunch). So, that's not the issue.

    I agree. It was difficult to keep up, when the SP3 first came out, with what were the "legit" issues, and what were issues that only a few people experienced but weren't necessarily platform-wide issues.

    So the recurring issues that I do experience now, I'm always wondering if someone else already complained about this, etc. Some kind of current "known issues" thread would be nice.
