Default How good or bad is old Bios A00 ? - 02-14-2009, 10:40 PM

Hello,

I today learned I am on A00. What am I missing if I don't upgrade?
I read some people were not sure about A04 this is why I decided to ask?
Do I just close my eyes and upgrade? To which version?
What features have new versions introduced?

Thanks!

PS. I actually like the low battery beeping...

A04 fixes several annoying problems, including the incorrect resolution on boot, and adds support for F11 and F12 function keys. I don't know of a reason to choose anything but A04.

I'm on A00, and have not had any issues (or the need) to warrant upgrading at this point. Though, I do check whenever an update is announced. It would be nice if Dell supplied a clear-cut list of all enhancements/changes for each update. :roll:
