Recommend to finally do the update? Seems there is some driver support from ASUS already. Thoughts?

I'm Running a G75VW came with Win 7 HP, I was able to Clean install to Win 8.1 using my $14.95 Win 8 Pro Product Key. I never put win 8 on at all. And I have Classic Shell running, booting straight to log in and desktop. Have redirected most things to open my software rather than the win 8 Apps. Getting slightly faster OS but then you always do with a Fresh install. Asus had the 8.1 drivers posted before I installed, I have all the software I use installed and haven't had any issues so far its only been a few days now. I'm feeling good about it, we do need to keep up with new technology I prefer to use it the way I'm used to. My Wife has had Win 8 on a new touch screen all in one, I see she sometimes use the gestures she has Classic Shell on to but I have her booting normally for win 8 t the apps page.
So I can't vote in your Poll since I still use Classic Shell, I don't think I will take it off on this notebooks lifetime

I'm sporting windows 8.1 on my G750JX without any issues what so ever.
Upgraded from Windows 8.
Never used Classic shell, but then again. I actually like the interface in Windows 8.
I'm happy. No regrets at all.

That Le Sux... maybe one of the ASUS ppl will see this and hopefully provide with a solution or at least say when the solution will be provided. Thanks for keeping us updated with your experiences though!

Check the ASUS download site for your model and there should be some bluetooth drivers posted for Win8.1 if you want to give it a try.
Hopefully other drivers will follow fairly soon.
If you're seeing any problems to get drivers, try this link for the North America region: http://www.service.asus.com/#!downloads/c1wax
