If you play much video and audio, you may wish to hook up to a separate sound system. It does not have a sophisticated sound system. However, it is adequate. If you check the laptop out at Amazon, you will see that it has many good reviews. Most of them are four stars and up. If you need a laptop and are on a budget, this computer will be a good purchase. I do not see how you can regret it.
4/5/2011 I am still using this very durable laptop with no problems. I write several freelance articles a day with no problems whatsoever.
