    Brad, you should consider THIS Armstrong drop ceiling tile. I had it in the basement of my previous house.

    Paul, if the H201 reboot issue annoys you enough not to wait for the next release, when an incorporated fix is promised, there's a workaround in the Microsoft Insider forum that involves running a "shutdown" command from a Powershell or Command window as soon as you see the "Restart Now" button. When the device shuts down, power it on again, and after it boots up run a similar command with a different switch and restart it again. Then go to the Update Tab in Settings and click Restart Now, or just go to the power button on the Windows Key menu and hit the Update and Restart option. I had three Surface devices of different ages and an old Dell tower that choked on the 18999 > 19002 updates until I did this. I had to do this twice on one of them but eventually they all got to 19002.1002, which is where they are supposed to be.

    I like the new 15" laptop, but it's pretty pricey with top-end specs. I will try to wait until the Book 3 comes out, but if something dies in the interim I may go get a laptop anyway.
