I am on a brand new Asus S550C Ultrabook with Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon (64 bit) installed. Seem to be having an almost identical problem with the battery state reading being inaccurate on and off. Also when the battery gets to below 7% or so, fan goes full bore and battery light flashes orange... also doesn't seem to be charging while this is happening. Have to turn off, remove/replace charger and battery and seems to be ok again.
Pretty sure this isn't the hardware. Hope a fix arrives soon, I cannot abide by Windows 8!
