@bodhi.zazen I have used powertop on Live CD and found that the battery discharging rate is around 16 - 18 W, when I didn't open any applications. The screen brightness was at 2 / 3 points. So, is that supposed to working fine??

You mean, I can switch graphic cards using Catalyst Center but I have to reboot the system! right? | Unlike windows, where we can't switch dynamically..

But vga_switcheroo only works with open source drivers. Its having trouble with AMD proprietary drivers.

Upgrading kernel.. well, how could I do that. I think my current kernel is v3 (not sure). To what version should I upgrade and how stable it is on other functionality
