Working away fine, but I haven't stressed it with video editing or anything yet so I don't really have an opinion on the performance yet.
I got the USB-C power, though not sure what advantage it has over the bog-standard one. If anything, doesn't it tie up the USB-C port? Am I right in thinking that with this option, only the external power adapter changed, and the laptop internals are all the same? I haven't spent time googling this yet, so there's probably a simple explanation.
One very minor fiddly thing annoying me is the fingerprint sensor sharing the power button. With my previous machine, when finished up for the day, I'd lock it (Windows-L) then press the power button to sleep. With this one, after locking it, when I press the power button, it unlocks it because it recognises the finger. Now I either manually 'sleep' it using the mouse from the lock screen or else press the power button with a finger not registered for fingerprint. I always configure machines to stay awake when the lid is closed in case I'm leaving something running. This actually just spurred me to google it, and I've setup a shortcut I can click now to sleep the machine.
noticed the fan kicking in now and then, but I think that's when I don't leave any clearance underneath for air. I have it resting on a book for height and if it's sitting back too far, the 2mm rubber stand thing at the back may not rest on the book, leaving the air intake obscured, so it's probably my fault.
I find the screen resolution excellent, so much so that I have it on (the default) 125% scaling.
I initially was a bit disappointed in only 2 USB ports, as I generally use 3 all the time (mouse, keyboard, headset) and sometimes another for a USB key. My old laptop had 3 ports. I was keeping a lookout to replace my keyboard & mouse with a single set, but have since found a spare USB hub so it's not annoying me any more.
