Reviews for the MSI Megabook S425
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.

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.
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.

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
