Yeah, well, it's all a bit specious, 'cos the thing's temporarily bricked.
Plugged it in and waited until the charge light went out.
Booted up and did the usual Win10 first boot stuff.
Told me it had to update now - no option to do otherwise.
Plug in the charger again, knowing it would take some time.
Get on with stuff.
Click the power button to see progress, but it does a cold start.
Screen tells me 'Restoring previous OS'.
Repeatedly fails, so go to boot menu - need to reinstall.
Currently downloading Win10 for a USB stick re-install.

The problem is simple - the idiots who packed it put a 1.3 amp charger in the box, instead of a 2 amp - battery died during the update (2 to 3 hours before I checked progress) and screwed the pooch. Mad | :mad:

Teach me to go cheapskate and get a refurbished item from eBay, but I only need it for week or so!
