You're looking at $350 for just the headset, or $450 for a bundle with the motion controllers.

When you look at what's coming in the new code, however, it appears that the update is more of an incremental addition rather than anything really game-changing, albeit with a few caveats.

Lenovo has introduced its augmented/virtual reality head mounted display (HMD) compatible with the Windows Mixed Reality platform.

Improved Windows Defender - updated with "cloud intelligence", enabling new defenses against ransomware and exploits.

Headsets from HP, Dell, Lenovo, Asus, and Acer will launch on October 17 alongside the update.

156000 jobs created in August, as 2017 job gains lag behind 2016
The Bureau of Labor Statistics summary said the unemployment rate rose in August to 4.4 percent, from the previous 4.3 percent. In August, average hourly earnings of private-sector production and nonsupervisory employees increased by 4 cents to $22.12.

Microsoft's PC partners have been gradually unveiling their Windows Mixed Reality headsets at IFA this week, all promising vague fall or October release dates.

The last major update, which arrived on 11 April, was the Creators Update. The Timeline feature is similar to Apple's Handoff, which allows users to continue their work across a variety of devices.

The article notes that unlike the Vive, Rift or PSVR, you won't need an external tracking device for the controllers or the headset. The Lenovo Explorer device requires a PC to operate and runs applications developed for WMR or Microsoft HoloLens and other AR/VR devices.

Unfortunately, the new release won't include one of the more exciting features that Microsoft has planned. "One of the ways we're supporting that mission is by taking this next step in our Windows journey and empowering the creator in all of us with the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update". Windows users and administrators can enforce the upgrade to install it as early as possible, or wait until Windows Update selects the PC for the update.
