Our Score:


Battery life clearly isn't a strong point, but then this isn't a machine meant for true mobile use. It does, however, have enough life for spurts of untethered use around the home.

I have bought this laptop, before i went to buy the A500 , I first saw it on this very site when i was browsing one the review on this model and found it good , i will say design is ok, but i was more interested in the features, and its function and dont forget its processing power, im not a game more in graghic design and media Applications, plus movies, thing that lets the A500 down is its battery, the standard one is in my view very poor, so not so good on the portiable side, but there is upgrade 12cell battery you can purchase but its heavy.

i have owmed laptop for about a week, still more to learn about i guess this will not be my last post..
