    Upgraded mine yesterday. the update to my unit was 2.7gb. if you don’t see the windows logo at the bottom right side of your screen you should check for updates from “Windows Update” and update it, it will appear automatically. if you have reservation for the update just wait, I noticed when I checked the windows logo and it was already downloading the free windows 10 upgrade(my settings allow automatic download for updates). Windows Edge is really useful, used it more often than Google Chrome now.

    Be patient you still have 1 year to upgrade to windows 10 and 1 year to hear from the early upgraders who upgraded to windows 10 about the bugs we encounter.
