Has any fellow G3-572 users upgraded to BIOS v 1.21 yet?

Just want to know if it's stable enough and doesn't come with any downgrade in performance.

    There's no useful information about what these bios updates do, which bugs are corrected or any improvement. Maybe someone has already updated and can share a word about it. I have concerns about fixing what isn't broken, specially in the dark, as acer is leaving lights off.
