    I am having this laptop for 8 months. I know have a problem with the battery. The battery meter has lost its mind. It shows 78 percent 1 hour remaining and the other minute is showing 77 percent 1 hour and 30 minutes remaining and such. Finally when it gets to 20% it is just turning off without any warning. Also i noticed that it wont charge up to 100%. Do i need another battery or a battery calibration? I never let my battery discharge fully and i can say i treat it very well... Any solutions?

    You can go through a single calibration, sure. Chances are that you will need to have the battery replaced, however.

    Estimated times will vary a lot depending on load but yes the shut off it of course not normal.

    Looks like your battery is defective.
    If it's within one-year of your purchase you can always claim warranty with ASUS directly. You will also need to provide proof of purchase if the product hasn't been registered yet.

    Hi everyone, I have owned and enjoyed this great laptop for a couple of years and now that its getting slightly long in the tooth I was wondering if its possible to upgrade the GPU, do any of you know if its MXM? And if so which standard it is?

    This model uses a surface mounted 760M, not the MXM module, unfortunately.
