Reviews for the MSI Megabook S425

60% A budget single-core notebook for undemanding users
Source: vnunet.com English
With a cheeky nod to Apple's design team, MSI's Megabook S425 is a tidy looking notebook with a sharp 14.1in screen. Like many MSI models, the keyboard lettering and minimal track pad look futuristic, while the blue LEDs that illuminate the power button, hard disk activity, Wifi connection and suchlike look positively space age. The pearl white keyboard, palm rest and screen trim complements the black exterior, even though everything is moulded from plastic. The Intel Pentium M 750 (1.86GHz) processor and 1GB DDR2 Ram aren't quite as modern but, at this price, we weren't expecting one of the new Core Duo processors.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce Go 6200: Smalles card of the GeForce 6 series and not much faster than integrated graphic cores. Only advantage is the PureVideo technology.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

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


Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.
It is also available as a low voltage version with very small current consumption.


750: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.1 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards.

The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.
