Aerobook Pro function keys behaviour

There is no option in the BIOS to change how the function keys (F1…F12) behave. For my work I need to use the function keys much more often than changing the volume or brightness.

I am sure many people have this problem. The BIOS the unit shipped with is far to restricting anyway.

We need a new BIOS. I am seriouesly considering returning my device for an Amazon refund and buy a different brand.
