On 1 June, I was invited to the media launch of MSI X340 at Serenity Restaurant in Vivocity (thanks to Sally from CR MEDIA for the invitation).
MSI gained popularity in Singapore with its MSI U100 which was one of the more popular netbooks around. Now, MSI is launching with another exciting product that will grab the hearts of fashionistas who also look for functionality.
Welcome MSI X340, the latest addition to the X-SLIM series of notebooks. As the name suggests, the X340 is incredibly slim. It measures only 19.8 mm at its thickest point. The sleekness of X340 makes it a sure head-turner. And did I tell you it weighs merely 1.3 kg? (1.3kg includes the weight of the 4-cell battery that comes along with X340. You can also get an 8-cell battery if you want longer battery life.)
For a notebook that weighs 1.3kg and is only 19.8mm thick, X340 does pack a punch. It runs on Intel® Core™2 Solo processor ULV SU3500 (1.4GHz), sports 2 USB ports, 1 HDMI port, 1 VGA port. All your regular connectivity options like Bluetooth and wireless LAN 802.11b/g/n are available. X340 is also great for watching videos with its 16:9 screen.
In conclusion, this notebook is certainly a good option for those who want something slim and light enough to carry around without strain, something that looks sleek enough to make others look with envy, and something with more processing power than Atom-based devices. No doubt, fashion and function can exist together.
