    Don't see no difference at all. Is there any changelog. BTW, after the flash, the laptop could not power up the first time. The 3 LEDs kept flashing, like the motherboard is struggling to start. Maybe it's just a mote thorough POST check, because it restarted automatically and all was well.

    I like it that ASUS is posting stuff on Megaupload, because that seems like we are made lab rats to test their new releases before they go gold.
