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 screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

2 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
