    Any idea if you can get the extended warranty through Wireless1 or Acer themselves? Regretted not getting this last time..

    EDIT: Disregard. Just reread the thread. Warranty only through COTD.

    +1 i agree, loving mine as well get average of 9 1/2 hrs on mine - only down side is i find even 1050px vertical res on 22" widescreen lcds not tall enough let alone 768px vertical res on Acer 3810T - miss the vertical desktop space at times. But battery and weight are my key criteria and Acer 3810T definitely fills that with 100% marks :)

    For me i find the 1366x768 res more limiting for multi-tasking than SU3500 speed, although it's no dual core, so there is lag but nothing dramatic

    seems can't load acer.com.au cashback site but still waiting on $99 bucks LOL

    Can they play 1080p video files smoothly, even with high bitrate?? or any problems with other video formats?

    Owners.. what are the speakers like?

    I don't expect much from a thin laptop.. but looking for something that isnt so soft i cant hear it over noise in the kitchen or tv in the other room..
    esp for Youtube videos

    Tip of the day for low volume speakers

    Go into control panel - speakers and look for the "enhancement" tab.

    Tick "loudness" and from now the volume will be much better across the board :thumbup:

    Did wonders on my Aspire one whos speakers are the bottom front of the unit.

    I found the speakers to be terrible. Very quiet and also very very tinny, kinda hurt my ears even though its not loud. Havn't had time to fiddle with any settings though and im not using it for music/movies etc so its all good.

    Thanks :) I wasnt expecting them to be fantastic for a tiny machine like that. Headphones are good but mrs uses Youtube for cooking lessons so the speakers need to be louder than the noise in kitchen :)

    My Dell 1525 is just loud enough..
    Macbook wasnt loud enough either.

    DO IT! There's two left :) Im totally in love with this 3810T, but the 4810TG is way more practical.
