After applying some tweaks, the speakers were very impressive for a notebook this size. When compared to netbooks like Samsung NC10 and Acer One, the Acer 1810T is a large improvement. I enjoyed watching some Youtube music clips. As I later watched some HD movies I did not need to connect my headphones. The sound was loud and clear.
Helped by the Intel 5100 a/b/g/n network card, the system picked up an above average amount of networks in my house. Connection was stable and transfer speeds left nothing to be desired. Connecting with a router with a weak signal was no problem.
