posted on the thread on the same deal, got mine yesterday, nice computer except for the speakers, i've owned maybe a half dozen laptops over the years, i've never had such lousy speakers just dreadful, comparable to a hand held transistor radio circa 1960. i've hooked up my X-mini speaker but that kind of defeats the purpose of a portable laptop. still debating whether to return it or not. if i'm missing something when you guys get yours, PLEASE send me a message.
I got the i3 version and the speakers are the worse speakers I have seen on a laptop, worse even then a Tablet or smartphone.
The sound coming out of the speakers is just awful and ridiculously tinny! There is no bass at all, just highs and mids that hurts the ears if you increase the volume.
I am not returning it because it will be used mostly as an HTPC with HDMI cable but the speakers are a joke!
You can try use loudness and equalizer (powerful mode) in the audio playback properties but don't expect too much of it.
You will have to use Windows 8 reset option. The key is inside the bios and is automatically retrieved when you re-install the OS.
Good luck if trying to load Windows 8 pro or anything different than Windows 8 core version that comes with the laptop. The product key is now embedded in the bios so when you trying to do a clean install it picks first the bios key and says that the key does not match the OS you trying to load.
Im sure there are workarounds for this, but what was wrong with having the key on the bottom or under the battery with Win 7 machines, or was that too much access in MS eyes
