Reviews for the MSI Megabook S300
Source: Laptop Mag
This system takes notebook bling to the next level while delivering decent performance and portability.
The MSI Computer S300 Crystal Edition takes the notion of a highly portable notebook as executive jewelry literally. Embedded in the surprisingly smudge-resistant black-lacquer lid are 120 Swarovski crystals arranged in a circle around the MSI logo. The look is more feminine than most men might want, but it certainly stands out even in today's crowd of slick-looking machines. Weighing 4.8 pounds, the S300 (which is also marketed as the S200-008US) is easy to carry and comes with both a neoprene pouch (to protect the finish) and a ballistic-nylon soft-sided briefcase. MSI has thrown in other extras for your $1,499, including a credit card-sized Media Center remote, a diminutive wired travel mouse, and even a Skype handset.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
Slow clocked dual core processor based on the Merom core featuring virtualization functions VT-x.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
