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.

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.


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.
