great graphics, fast speed, great amount of memory and hard drive, good computer for what the price is

the stickers can get kind of annoying and are hard to remove

Like I said before, I am not using this for gaming or anything thing else that would require hardcore video card/and or processor.

It is lightwieght, compact, and somewhat flashy. I bought this machine mainly for school, and work. I am not using it for gaming. It works great for what I need. For paying only 500$ this is the best deal out there

There is no scroll button on the mouse; not that big of a deal though. Other than that I can't find anything wrong with it

Decent Laptop


Even though its got some cons I like the laptop. As I said I bought 2 and I am not sending them back. MSI could do better on the sound and a 9 cell battery would have been a better standard option than the 6 cell it came with. I would still recommend...

Bought 2 of these and both worked great right out of the box ; Good looking unit with a good display. The speed is good for the price. Could have bought other units with same features and comparable pricing but I know MSI sells good products and I...

I know you've read it and its true the sound is not that good and battery life is horrible. But thats what I got the power adapter for and I can always buy decent cheap external speakers if I ever need them

Niced system for the money


If you need to stay in the $500 range, this is a good buy.

Very nice little system, especially for the money. I bought this laptop for my mother and she just loves it. She likes the keyboard and ease of use

The stickers could be easy to remove, but it really does not matter that much. Really there is nothing so far to complain about

Wonderful Buy!!!


I would definately buy this laptop again if I was given the choice to do so, a stronger battery would be nice, but I can't complain really. :-)

Wonderful speed for a low price. The layout is large and excellent for those used to a regular keyboard. For $500, I can honestly say I loved this more from the moment I turned it on, than those $800 laptops you see sitting at Best Buy. Very good video...

Some things I already knew but didn't care about: Not the best speaker quality in the world, invest in external speakers and headphones if you want loud music/movies. Another pain that comes with 99% of laptops, a not-so-fantastic battery that gets...

MSI A5000-436US NoteBook Intel Pentium dual-core T4500(2.30GHz) 15.6" 4GB Memory 250GB HDD DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 8200M G


Has a full keyboard with numpad, is quite fast for the price, and has an excellent display. I need to take this with me to use Photoshop on the go, and while it is not a powerhouse to be sure, it runs the program admirably well given the cost and size...

While I wasn't expecting stellar sound quality from laptop speakers, this machine takes the cake easily for worst sound I have ever heard from a laptop. MSI thoughtfully put the speakers on the bottom of the laptop so if the machine is resting on a...

Laptop at a great price


I just ordered it this evening. Reading the others reviews pushed me over the edge. Once received I will add another review. If it is half as good, as the reviews, well worth it. Ans the warranty is fantastic

Great Deal but Dead Pixel


Just got mine, fired it up, and saw a dead pixel right in the middle of the screen. I am packing it back up and returning it tomorrow. I was disappointed because it looked great and seemed to run very quickly based on the little amount I used it.
