I grabbed these updates for Surface Book last night and the one thing I noticed immediately was the sensitivity bump for the devices touchpad.  I now have to be more aware of how far I am moving my fingers on the trackpad to avoid scrolling straight to the bottom of my current screen.

Have you received these updates yet for your hardware? Any issues to report so far?
