    Wow, this surprises me, I thought I only have about 6~7GB of storage space left, but after RT 8.1 update, I notice that now I have 12GB of space available!! So the update file must have been deleted automatically along with other system files!!

    Eh another firmware update came up after the install. hopefully that fixes my keyboard problem!
    some tings are snappier, but the keyboard lag is still very much there. worse in some cases. and i'm still getting the thing where upon restart or starting, the password field doesn't activate the on-screen keyboard. has only happened once so far, but i hope that's the only time. that happened to me daily w/ the preview and windows rt 8. the keyboard lag makes me think the photo editing tools and xbox music will still be very laggy. haven't tried them yet.

    on a brighter note, 8.1 is definitely better than 8 and 8.1 preview. i like it. i hope they keep pushing it to perfection.

    All done with install. Played with it for a while and liking what I seen so far. Love that "Dragon" start screen background. Oh and the email app looks so much better.

    It's not showing up for me, and no, I do not have the Enterprise version installed.

    So is RT smooth now? or is RT laggy still and apps are sluggish.
    I've been running my RT with 8.1 RTM with a few tweaks for a few weeks now and it has been very snappy. The latest fixes that were installed last night seemed to offer a very, very slight improvement over what I was experiencing with 8.1 RTM.

    No, I think that's new. It is nice to have more options though.

    Anyone else having issues with the Music and photos apps? Photos aren't showing up, and when I try to add a library to Music it crashes.

    Downloaded in under 10 mins... not sure exact time, but I was playing a game for under 10 mins and it downloaded. The install took quite some time... even though I have an SSD installed!

    I would say about 30 mins for the installation. Weird.

    Hmmm that's weird. I had to open the photos app a couple of times before the tile started flipping on my start screen. Did the photos app ask you to sign into your Microsoft account?

    Yea same with Music. When I started it said it was adding my music, but then nothing showed up. Very odd. Photos does nothing but say "Sorry there was a problem. Please try again later."

    I haven't had time to play with it much, but being able to add a playlist in Music from a text-based list off the web is pretty cool.

    You might be running an edition of Windows 8 that doesnt support the free update from the Store

    Some editions of Windows 8 dont support the free update to Windows 8.1. These include:

    • Windows 8 Enterprise
    • Editions of Windows 8 Pro that are installed by enterprises using KMS activation
    • Editions of Windows 8 that are installed using an MSDN ISO, and activated using multiple activation keys
    • If youre running one of these editions, you can't install the free update to Windows 8.1 or Windows RT 8.1 from the Store.
    • If you installed Windows 8 using an MSDN ISO, you might be able to install Windows 8.1 using a similar ISO from MSDN.

    woo hooooooooo!!!!!!

    I love the new update! Almost disappointed it didn't start this way! The new multitasking is epic! I can't believe original win8 wouldn't do the 50/50 split, it is the most useful!

    The other incredible thing is that 8.1 freed up about 6 GB more free space on my hard drive which is quite precious on a 32GB tablet, now I have some breathing room!!

    Don't forget to run the disk clean up tool in desktop mode. I managed to regain 1.5Gb.


    I just love love love having Outlook.

    Updated my At&t Asus VivoTab 4G LTE with no problems what so ever though the download and install was a little long. It is a fast RT device and even faster now after this update.
