Also @nexero could you run a test for me? As I said above my wifi goes incredibly slow when a VGA and HDMI monitor are BOTH plugged in. Any chance you could see if this happens for you?
Mine came with 212 and the first thing I did was update to 216. Haven't upgraded to 218 yet.
My UX31A just got bricked today. I shut it down, and when I try to turn it on, only the power led turns on. The screen is blank, even the "ASUS" logo does not show. Caps-lock also does not respond, so I think it is a UEFI problem and not a screen problem.
I just updated the kernel today to quantal-updates latest 188.8.131.52.32. I don't think that it is related, but I'm posting it here to see if other people are having the same problem.
I have issues with the new kernel too. Mine goes past BIOS and shows grub, though, so I was able to select an old kernel and boot. Could however somehow be related to the fact that the crappy SSD that's bolted to the motherboard died.
