"Excellent machine - minor volume fix"4.5 starson by wallachia
Pros: battery life, wireless reception quality
Cons: Low Speaker volume
Summary: I was considering returning the machine because of the low sound volume but I was able to tweak a little more volume by increasing all the sliders in the equalizer located in the Realtek HD Sound Effect Manager. (I got there through control panel). I researched netbooks quite a while before deciding on this one. what did it for me was the battery life. I can just grab it and throw it in the car as we go out and not have to worry if I've charged it recently. I've found the hibernate feature really works like it should on this machine. You just close the lid and it saves your place and shuts down. The next time you use it the boot up takes only a fraction of the time a full boot would.
