I got the Aspire R13 (317T) a couple of days ago, and while I am really enjoying it there's a couple of problems with the keyboard.
The first is that is there any way to completely disable the backlight on the keyboard? I'm tired of having to manually use the function keys to turn if off every time I open the lid. This wouldn't be as much of a problem if there wasn't the second issue.
Second, when the backlight is all the way up, there is a high pitched buzzing noise comming from the speakers. I've found a coulple other posts that have the same problem but I don't know if it's a defect or an issue that can be fixed.
I really like this laptop but these keyboard issues are starting to make me think I need to return it.
