weird, my 2016 macbook rebooted immediately when i clicked 'install', but my 2015 macbook pro is downloading (for about 8 minutes) first.

what do you peeps see? a download then reboot? or..? am curious.

EDIT: also unusual. generally, my macbook pro finishes updating faster. tonite, it's got 10 minutes to go, and my macbook's been up&running for 10 minutes already.

Yep, it took a minute or so for PB5 to show up in App Store>Updates even after clicking on "update" but it did show up, download and install wrapping up with a reboot.

for me, i think this is the first beta update i've run that didn't install similarly on both macs (and, until tonite, always faster on the mb pro). but seems all is well...

Be careful, just installed it and it's white screening on me. cmd-v and cmd-s yield nothing. Plain option doesn't give me boot options. cmd-opt-p-r doesn't seem to even activate now oddly (was thinking maybe a reset on the nvram would help). It would seem that beta 5 has really screwed the pooch as far as my firmware goes. Not sure what to do at this point.

boot into recovery (command R) and install from there...

Same thing, what I'm saying is that no key triggers work. cmd-r, NOTHING. It's looking like they obliterated my firmware. I'm trying to figure out how to get into EFI and force a firmware load (holding power button in for like 20 seconds until the lights flash). Really super concerned right now.

Do any builds of 10.13.1 fix problems like,

Sometimes Mac wont wake up after its on sleep for a while, and I have to force shut it down

Computer screen freezes at least 10-15 times a day, albeit brief, but I never experienced this before 10.13

Media key / AirPods/bluetooth device bugs - 90% of the time if my airpods are connected to my mac, taking one out wont pause anything, and double tapping wont pause anything, and then when it does, its not what I intended to pause!

FALSE ALARM. Talk about your perfect storms. It turns out, after a ton of troubleshooting, it was a USB attached FAN! The fan caused some kind of extremely strange issue where it was attached and pulling power from an old USB 2 hub I had on the system. Incredible.

these are not 'global' issues... am not sure about the airpods, but i don't have those first 2 issues. could be hardware... worth checking out. have you tried resetting the pram, and the smc on your mac?

This update has caused my 2017 Macbook to lag like no other. Here's to hoping Apple fixes it in the new release.

not everyone is having that issue. if issues aren't universal, there may not be a simple 'fix in the next release'. so, seems to be worth reinstalling the OS...

I fully understand. My friend on the beta doesn't have lag, I do. I was just stating my experiences on this beta.
