When power is sacrificed, portability usually benefits, as powerful components quickly suck the life from a battery. However, this laptop provides a poor 176 minutes of life, making it one of the least suited to travel.

Plastic book. Many shortcomings and few genuine good points, is how we would sum up this cut-price laptop for €370. Before we can get too pleased about its excellent range of ports, our hands slip over the case’s glassy surface. Read on to find out more about this laptop and its AMD V series V120 processor.

MSI reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

ATI Radeon HD 4270: Onboard (shared memory) graphics card in the RS880M chipset with Avivo HD support. Technically a higher clocked HD 4250.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


AMD Athlon II:

P320: Entry level dual core processor for 13"+ laptops featuring a DDR3 memory controller.

AMD V-Series:

V120: Entry level single core processor with an integrated DDR3 memory controller. Due to the high clock speed, the CPU should be much faster than Atom CPUs.

2.415 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.5 kg:


72%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
