Product Description

Product Description

The concept for the bottom framing of the X340 originated from the lightness of the feather as well as its elegance and richness, further freeing the notebook from the traditional grimness. The most unique features of the X340 has to be that it is only 0.24" at its thinnest, 0.79" at its widest, and the entire notebook is only weights 2.86 lbs added with the battery! Making the X340 the world's lightest and slimmest 13" notebook. The X340 is embedded with the latest Intel Core 2 Solo processor, the most advance technology and functions. It can offer you the best assistance artwork, and the most fun when you want to be entertained. The X340 has selected the latest Lithium-polymer battery, which offers incredible battery endurance. The X340 is embedded with the LED power-saving backlight technology in providing better color fullness and brightness, elevating the total quality of imagery. Furthermore, the lower usage of power can offer a longer operating time. MSI's Exclusive Vivid Image Enhancement Technology can enhance the richness in colors from the source of the signal so the images displayed can provide more levels and details. This also gives a more three-dimensional expression during gaming, watching movies or viewing pictures, and even during the editing process. 13.4 WXGA (1366 x 768) LED Backlit Display Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD Two internal 1-Watt Speakers Built-in 1.3 Megapixel Webcamera and Microphone Built-in 802.11b/g/n Wireless 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN Bluetooth v2.0 EDR 2-in-1 Card Reader - SD, MultiMedia Card Ports - 3 x USB 2.0, Headphone out; Microphone-in (or 2nd Headphone out), VGA, HDMI, RJ-45 Approximate Unit Dimensions - 13 (L) x 8.82 (D) x 0.24~0.78 (H) Approximate Unit Weight - 2.86 Pounds

The MSI X340 is an extremely slim (0.7" thin) and light (just under 3-lb) laptop that rivals the MacBook Air, but without the high price tag and it also runs Windows! Vista Home Premium 64-bit to be exact. I have an Lenovo U110, which is an amazing laptop all on its, but I found myself wanting a bigger screen, and the x340 is the perfect answer, its 13.4" LED-backlit LCD screen is bright and show good vivid color contrast. The keyboard is not as responsive as the Lenovo (which generally regarded as having the best keyboard in the industy), but nevertheless, it is a very respectable keyboard that show little flex during typing. The HDMI 1080p works perfectly on my Samsung LCD, which I used quite often not just to watch video, but also to simply use it as a large computer monitor along with my cordless Logitech keyboard and mouse. The HDMI also passes audio to my Samsung LCD TV speaker, not sure if it pass 5.1 digital surround signal since I don't have an HDMI AV receiver. This is just about the most perfect ultra-portable laptop, with its price, weight, large 13.4" screen. The only thing I can think of that would make this laptop perfect is an additional USB port (currently only 2) and the additional of a second/right mouse button, and perhaps a slightly more powerful battery. The standard 4-cell last a little over 3 hours of mixed use with Wifi on at all time with FTP upload, web browsing, document creation and screen brightness set at about 75%. I know some of you might also want to add DVD/blu-ray drive to the mix, but the resulting increase in price, size and weight will not justify the benefit. This is a wonderful laptop for those of us who want a small and light ultraportable with a large screen, but didn't want to spend more than $1000 for a new laptop.

After trying and returning an HP Mini 1000 from Verizon I ordered an X340 from Amazon and have no regrets. While I think the new 11.6" form factor machines (e.g. Acer 751h) will be ideal for train use, I wanted the perfect ultra-portable for home which had a little more horsepower and a bigger screen. As others have said, while this machine costs double what a 10" netbook does, it is a fraction of the price of a Macbook Air or Sony Vaio with pretty equivalent specs.

The packaging and design of the X340 are beautiful, and contrary to some other reviewers, I do not find it to be too plasticy or the keyboard to have too much flex. I think Timothy Lam's review is spot on so I won't duplicate. The machine runs Vista 32 respectably right out of the box, but I immediately upgraded to Windows 7 32-bit without a hitch or DVD drive using a shareware program called Virtual Clone Drive. Projected battery life increased by about 20 minutes to 4:07, but I have not had it long enough to cite what you can realistically expect. If that is unacceptable there is supposed to be an optional 8 cell battery, or you should consider the X320 with Atom Z530 and 8 hour battery life for $600 (same size and great screen).

I think the screen size is ideal for an ultra-portable, and despite the screen being glossy, I noticed very little glare, especially compared to the HP 1000. Although the touchpad lacks 2 discreet buttons, I found it to be excellent, as are the speakers for a notebook. The light weight and ergonomics were perfect for chilling on the couch, and working or surfing. It really is a delight to use, and kind of intoxicating.

In summary, depending on your needs, there is virtually nothing to dislike about this computer and I think MSI has scored a big hit in this 13.4" ultra-portable category.
