I'm thinking about updating my laptop to 8.1. I already had some experience with RTM which was released on MSDN and it was pretty unstable, I had issues with power management, overheating and Bluetooth - all of these worked properly on 8.
Is there anyone with Z580 (or similar) with 8.1 on it? I'd like to know if something improved since then.

I just upgraded to 8.1
It's nice to know that this big update released day after RTM fixes some stuff. Unfortunately, I still have issues with power management. It worked well on both 8, and Linux, but not here. I get only 4h of battery life and my discharge rate is constantly jumping between 10W and 20W - on 8 it was 7-12W. I think it could be an issue with GPU drivers, because I remember having 20W+ discharge rate when using NVidia GPU on Windows 8.
Anyone else has this issue?

I am having issues with WiFi internet connectivity - Wifi works fine, but it keeps dropping the internet connection. Worked fine before the 8.1 upgrade. My Z580 also seems to running a little hotter.

I had Wi-Fi issues in Windows 8.1 Preview, but it was fine in RTM though. Maybe something went wrong during upgrade?
My Z580 is also a little hotter, weird stuff, there's something wrong with power management on 8.1. Both battery life and temperatures were better on 8.
