7/5/2012 12:59:09 AM From time to time I will need to reboot it but not all the time. Start up is kind of slow and internet is somewhat slow. If I click on a link it seems that it can't find the page. If I click the link a 2nd time it will pop right in.

3/1/2013 4:09:11 PM My only dissatisfaction has been the sound(volume) of the external speakers.....not loud enough!!! But, I have not checked it out since I ran the PC TUNE-UP and I did notice that one of the drivers that was updated was the audio driver. Will check it out and let you know. Thx.
