The glossy screen option is not possible on this model; it would have made the display easier to read. This results in poorer quality in environments with intermediate to low light levels. The display legibility will therefore be a little off.
In fact, in order not to suffer from reflections on the screen, you will need to have full light conditions.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this Aspire 5. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers.
