Can I check with you guys if you all experience missing keystrokes too? Particularly sometimes shift+2 results in a 2 instead of an @. Wondering if this is an issue of the current bios as well. If so, I can wait. If not it's going back.

I have seen it, but with me it does not happen as often as key transpositions. It seems like it also has to do with timing, as it does not happen when I am slower and more deliberate with the keypresses. I have not tried the beta bios yet. Has anyone seen this effect and had it fixed with the bios update?
EDIT: I think this must be a key transposition as well. If the driver registers the 2 keypress before the shift keypress, I guess the shift would do nothing, which would make it look like the shift keypress was dropped entirely.

Same issue with my E585
Typing too fast results in swapped characters. Weird issue. PM'd Andy for beta, anxious to try it out. This drives me insane. Definitely needs to be fixed at the bios level, the issue is present even before booting into an OS (GRUB for example)

As a result of the increase in members reporting this issue in the last few days I have requested engineering to package the the ECP (Embedded Controller Program) in a manner suitable to risk free distribution and installation. I hope to be able to confirm and provide more information on Tuesday.

I also asked for this beta BIOS but don't get an answer I hope the new BIOS or Embedded Controller firmware will released shortly, because this problem is really annoying. The E485 has a bunch of problems like low performance and a very short battery life of 3 hours.

I am having the issue too with missing characters and lag on the keyboard. Also the 3 trackpad buttons are unresponsive sometimes, resulting have to click again, a time waster and frustrating problem.
