The A5000-222US is a mid-level model in MSi's low-end A5000 series of 15.6" notebook computers. The laptop features a 1.9GHz Intel Celeron dual-core processor, which combines with 2 GB of memory to enable good performance in basic computing tasks, like web browsing. But the specifications may be inadequate for more demanding uses, and without a discrete graphics chip, the 222US is not suitable for serious gamers. An HDMI output and 4-in-1 card reader are included, and the laptop has built-in Wi-Fi, but not Bluetooth. LED backlighting and a power management system aim to reduce energy use.
