Reviews for the MSI S12T-3MA441

73% MSI S12T-3MA441 Subnotebook Review | Notebookcheck
No endurance. The highlights of the small 11.6-inch laptop are the mSATA solid state drive and empty hard-drive slot. Our report reveals whether the subnotebook has more than that to offer.

For those looking at getting a smaller laptop system, the number of options is growing thanks to AMD's new ultra-low power A4 platform. The MSI S12T takes advantage of this to actually offer a decent alternative to Intel based systems but it doesn't quite reach Intel's level of performance. It is nice to see MSI include a larger hard drive for those that need space.

11.6":

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.

1.3 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
