What is the latest firmware that the Samsung updater software (on Windows) provides? On the Samsung support site latest version is 188.8.131.52 from May 9, 2012. I am thinking about getting this model, so am thinking if there is even a slight chance that this bug is ever going to get fixed.
#55: "they told me that the Samsung Series 5 was already discontinued" - The whole Series 5? I doubt. Must have meant this model only - there's already a new touchscreen version coming with Win8, and there was a 530U3_B_ before this 530U3C.
