Reviews for the MSI MS-1013

MSI MS-1013 Blue Media
Source: notebookforums.com English
It has been 5 years sine I own this notebook and find it hard each time to part from it in order to make room for another mobile new model. It survives many of my rough handling during traveling. I even dropped it a few times only to find it running further at the push of the button. With many newer models doing away with an optical drive on this notebook size (less than 13") I have the feeling that this would be with me until the board really croaks out.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
