    Can you replace the drive in a UX? I never powered up my N56 with the windows drive installed, a new SSD was about 10 percent of the total cost of the machine.

    I have an N56VJ with 12.10 loaded. The latest kernel update to 3.7.0.4 now has the screen backlight function keys working. They only work within the top 10% of range though.
