I received my A5000-026US a couple of weeks ago for $399.99 from CCity. I have no complaints at all when it comes to drivers and pre-installed applications. Everything works fine as expected, especially the Touchpad scrolling thing. In fact, I didn't know about it till someone mentioned that they're having problems on A6000. Bottom line, everything works fine for me! I hooked up the HDMI port to my 42" HDTV and it shows 1080p, that's amazing!

The keyboard is fine except when typing messages on Gmail...grrrr... I have to go back for mispelled or missing characters. Typing this message in here at a speed has no problem.

Wish I can sell this one now and get a much cheaper deal tomorrowlook around

What do people think of this Toshiba going at OD for $349?
http://www.officedepot.com/a/prod...5980-15-6/

Same processor with 250GB, 2GB ram, 4500M graphic, no HDMI.

You think if I grab the MSI today they'll let me pricematch tomorrow?

How does this compare with the Walmart $300 computer of last week? I got one of those, but am debating this.

I am also wondering if Nvidia System Tools will overclock CPU and GPU on this notebook. Does it work with the MSI A6000 because if it does then it should work with this one. This chip should overclock like crazy with minimal heat. I would think you could possibly overclock the FSB from 800 to 1066 giving you 2.4Ghz which would beat the T6600 and hang with the T9300. I haven't seen any Nvidia chipsets that their system tools doesn't work on so this should work. The lower the cache on CPU means less heat and higher clock speeds! I might jump on this deal if someone can verify that the system tools can overclock from 800 to 1066FSB. At $329 this would be the deal of a century!

Is this a better deal than the Lennovo from newegg yesterday? I know the newegg is on backorder, but you can still order it.

id think a t6600 for around 60 bucks on ebay would be a nice drop in... you could sell this celly to one of the "250.00 acer deal" guys and reclaim some money back... this dual core celly would make a worthwhile upgrade to one of those single core acer laptops!!!

for about 60bucks + ship is what ive seen the t6600 pulled chips going for adds 400mhz

for reference here are passmark scores of various chips:

t9300:1672
t6600: 1515
t3000: 1171
celeron 900: 795

I'm sure your response as the self-appointed moderator will have the poster begging a thousand pardons. But your post is not threadcrapping???? Duh! And that username, poopstinksalot ???? - how fitting. Your posts stink a lot too!

Repeat after me: "Goosefrabba, Goosefrabba...."

Do you have proof in this thread to support your allegations? Perhaps you can read but somehow refused to understand what you are reading.
We are all here to share information and express our opinions. That is what this forum is all about. If you can't do just that then refrain from bashing and flaming members. In fact, you are the one who is trying to crapped and clutter up this forum. Grow up dude!

Is the "3 year limited warranty" a plus?
