Old history: For CF-30 but may apply.
MK 1 had minor acpi issues
MK 2 had no issues
MK 3 had screen flash
On to CF-31 MK1 had issues but not same as MK3
MK 2 no issues but changed to Interlink Touchpad
MK 3 had flashy issues.
The point: Can acpi be part of your problems?
Have the CF-30 mk2 (where the SSD came out).
This 31 is a Mk1
Screen flash only occurs with ATI card made available/forced. When in power save mode, unit exhibits no undesirable screen performance.
I am unable to diagnose myself ACPI issues if present. Not that technical. However, if there are logs or outputs you'd like me to pull, I can do so and report here.
Other notes- touchpad works fine, no tuning required.
Performance is fantastic in mint w/o ATI card. The ATI card will be useful when I have the windows caddy loaded and want to play games or something in those long hotel nights.
Moving the SSD in its caddy from the CF-30 to the 31 was painless once BIOS settings were known. Only odd thing is that saved wifi network information doesn't get auto used. Instead, the system creates a new profile for each wifi I connect to and requires me to copy the password over.
The screen is painfully bright. NASA called asking if I could dim it so they can use their telescopes.
VMs do not result in core melt downs thus far.
Overall, a great step up.
Any other tests or observations that I can make, please post up and I'll notate what I can for you all and help further the knowledge base.
