Windows 10 August 14, 2018—KB4343909 (OS Build 17134.228)

Addresses an issue that causes high CPU usage that results in performance degradation on some systems with Family 15h and 16h AMD processors. This issue occurs after installing the June 2018 or July 2018 Windows updates from Microsoft and the AMD microcode updates that address Spectre Variant 2 (CVE-2017-5715 – Branch Target Injection).

Addresses an issue that significantly reduced battery life after upgrading to Windows 10, version 1803.

No wonder my AMD Laptop suddenly become more responsive

Thanks! Btw is this the best value laptop as of now? I actually been looking at getting a new laptop for almost 2 months already. I see the usual intel ones but thought of just wait awhile more. I thought of trying out a Ryzen laptop hence looking into this Thinkpad. I don't think are other Ryzen laptops selling in SG right?
There is but below 1k for 2700u? Not seen anywhere yet.

Harvey Norman selling Envy x360 13 with the 2500U but you can save $400 if you go across the causeway, making it only $1200

(華) 戴爾自Win7之後就沒有在本地市場推出採用AMD處理器的膝上型電腦了。惠普,我完全沒有印象,它們可有曾經在本地市場推出AMD機款。華碩也一樣。
宏基無論在視窗系統的哪一代都有AMD機款,但是選擇性少。。。聯想這次的Thinkpad,該算是市面上最平價,最值得買的一款了吧。。。

回頭看看,市面上有哪一些平價機款可以平價又有規格的顯示器能打線上遊戲的?

I chatted with the HP store customer service agent (Malaysia store one, but doesn't matter because Singapore store one also use the same office)

I can buy both the laptop and 3-year warranty from the Malaysia online store, bring it to Singapore and the warranty will be valid in Singapore because the model is supported in Singapore. Only RM3980 (about $1350)

But I'll pay the higher price because lighter, better battery life and touchscreen.

To each their own.

Looking at comparing between E485 and E585 but for some reason with the same configuration E485 is around $210 more expensive as compared to E585 due to the preconfigured Window 10 home and SSD size.

But iirc e485 is 14" and e585 is 15" but all configuration is almost the same selections.
