Dang. Bought this a couple of days ago, but got the single license option and not the household option. Don’t know how I missed that. Gonna have to send an email to see if there is an option to upgrade.
Came up with 29 driver updates for my XPSOne which aren’t even tracked on the Dell website. Worked well for me.
Also like the driver backup/restore in case something goes wrong.
I have found that new drivers don’t necessarily mean better performance. If I am not experiencing any problems, I have a tendency to leave them alone. Just my way of doing things, same for my BIOS.
I do agree Tony, but sometimes when you have drivers showing as a few years old it is time to update – and there is the driver backup feature here which made me feel safe to update.
