I just wanted to let anyone that is interested know that I have an Asus Republic of Gamers G55VW laptop that Ubuntu 12.10 is working - finally - at 100% fully operational. The machne specs:
Intel Core i7-3610QM, quad-core, 2.3GHz
nVidia GeForce 660m, 2GB GDDR5
Seagate Momentus ST9750420AS 750GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s
HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GT51N
Intel Centrino Wireless w/ Bluetooth 4.0 (I forget the exact model, and can't find it within Ubuntu at the moment)
12GB DDR3 RAM
The only thing I can't confirm is working at the moment is the turbo speed boost for the processor, but the system reports 8 cores available due to hyperthreading of the 4 physical cores.
It took quite a bit of work to get the nVidia drivers working properly, and I finally got the backlight dimming working just this week thanks to these forums. The only bug I am aware of is that the network manager crashes on every boot up, but networking is functioning perfectly well.
