The most unique feature of the X340 is its size--0.24 inches at its thinnest point, 0.79 inches at its thickest, combined with its 2.8-pound weight (with the battery)--making the X340 the world's lightest and slimmest 13-inch notebook. It also features customizable power settings with five different modes--office, gaming, movies, presentation, and turbo battery--for flexibility and increased productivity based on your needs.
This laptop does not include an optical drive, but optional CD/DVD read/write drives can be connected to the laptop via one of its USB ports, enabling you to create your music mixes, burn movies to DVD, and more.

| The MSI X340 uses a 13-inch HD-Ready LCD display to provide added comfort when watching the latest movies, playing games, or just reading documents. The 16:9 theater ratio provides an additional 14 percent of visual area. When watching movies, the black bars on the top and bottom common to 16:10 aspect ratios can be avoided completely. |
The X340 is also embedded with the LED power-saving backlight technology to provide better color fullness and brightness, elevating the total quality of imagery. Furthermore, the lowered power usage can offer a longer operating time when using battery power.
Video is powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD, which uses shared video memory. This graphics card is built with Intel Clear Video technology, which delivers clearer, more detailed images by eliminating many of the jagged edges and video artifacts seen when viewing interlaced content and features powerful color control to ensure videos are not too dark, overly bright, or washed out.
