    Got a call from microsoft store glendale galleria at 6pm telling me that 128gb has arrived.
    Got there around 8pm and they gave me a free no charge type cover and i bought myself a mouse for surface too.
    Charging it now and plan to update for tonight.
    Any advice guys?

    Fully charge it and then load Windows Updates. When I get a new PC I make of list of the programs I need to load, then load them one at a time and check for program updates. Then I reboot and test the program to make sure it working correctly. You don't want to load six programs, not check for updates, and then have a problem. Just my opinion.

    Windows is not like iOS that updates once a year or Android which is periodically. Windows is pretty much continuously updated. These updates are traditionally pushed out on Tuesday and therefore have become known as "Patch Tuesday". There are several threads regarding the various Tuesday updates issued so far.

    As soon as you enter the store they are listed in the Spotlight section. Top paid, Top free, and New Releases.
