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!

Nice screen size
Decent battery life
Msi logo lights up :)
Vista runs OK
Atom Processor :(
Keyboard is meh
I've had this computer for a few days now and I'm very pleased with it. I have a powerhouse desktop so I don't need much in the way of a laptop, just something to get me through a few classes and take notes. The battery life is excellent as far as I'm concerned. I had it on low brightness in power saver with wifi on and it got be about four and a half hours. I immediately took off Vista and put on 7. Vista seemed to run fine for the few hours I had it on, but 7 runs on it far better. Don't try and enable aero if you have 7, it just was way too choppy. Streaming youtube was better than other netbooks I've used. No choppiness at all. The computer is of course limited by the ability of the atom processor. However for $379, this is the best netbook you can get in my opinion. I originally had an HP Mini 110, and while it was cute and small, you get tired of a 10 inch screen after awhile. The 13" of the X320 is just big enough to view webpages without unnecessary scrolling.
A lot of people complain about the keyboard. As far as I'm concerned it's no big deal. Yeah it's a little "mushy" but I've had no problems typing on it at all. Yeah it flexes a bit when you type on it but you can't FEEL the flex if you're not looking at it. I read a lot of reviews that made me think that I'd be getting a laptop with a terrible keyboard. Believe me, it's more than bearable. If I hadn't read so many reviews on the keyboard before I bought it, I don't think I would have thought twice about it.
- Very light for a computer this size
- Very light
- Did I say it was light???
Cons are minor, but good to know:
- Fairly slow (but only if you are used to faster computers)
- Wi-fi signal is fairly weak (the strength of the wi-fi signal on this laptop continuously goes up and down reaching 4/5 bars maximum, while my other laptop [Sony VGN-NW] is stable 5/5 signal strength)
- Keyboard not highly comfortable (again, only in comparison with Sony VGN-NW)
- Touch pad buttons sound too "clicky" when you press (may not be convenient in public libraries)
Although this machine is not as great as expected (the impression developed due to advertisement and other users' comments) I paid less $400 for this machine and so far I am content with what I got for this price. However, I would have regretted had I paid more than $500.
Remember what you expect.
I agree with the other reviews that the keyboard is kind of springy...however, I got the impression from those reviews that the whole laptop might be flimsy and flexible, and that's just not the case. It's plenty rigid, it's just the effect of springy keys. You'll want to work on a solid surface or with your legs up to help stabilize.
My only complaint is the shiny screen: sure, it's pretty to look at, but it produces some pretty nasty glare and reflection. I much prefer a matte screen. But that a minor annoyance, and a personal one at that.
Word of warning for anyone taking up the upgrade offer from Vista to Win7: Microsoft will only send the upgrade to you in DVD form, so you'll have to find a way to make a .iso image of the disk on another computer and then get an .iso reader to run it on your laptop.
Light weight, great size screen=very clear-very comfortable to use-as quick as I need it to be to do Word and Surfing-the perfect netbook. Beware-the battery is only a 4 cell which can mean less time between re-charges. I only had it a week so I don't know how long the batter lasts.
Only downside-it uses Windows-What can you do?
I am very happy with it but would suggest you buy it at J&R where it is much less money.
I was concerned 13" would be too small, but I'm finding it just fine. I actually give this a 4 1/2 stars because the keyboard is indeed annoying and the sound not so great. But the primary purpose of a traveling computer to have ready internet information during trips; answering email and playing solitaire are met very well.
