I remember reading the buzzing sound had something to do with the
processor speed so I tried out LightSpeed but it wasn't stable enough

The only time the buzzing noise is even an issue is usually at night
when I try to read in bed, which is probably not a good idea for me
anyway as I tend to fall asleep when I'm reading a book and get woken
up as it hits the floor. Needless to say I don't read much at night

anyone mentioned the screen buzz or lack of it, but it was never
mentioned and none of the commercial reviewers mentioned it either.
