Reviews for the MSI X370-205US

80% MSI X-Slim X370-205US 13.4-inch Ultraportable Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Ultrathin laptops have gotten very small but they also carry a fairly high price. The MSI X-Slim X370 is a very compact and thin laptop for those that don't mind a little extra bulk and weight but at a much lower cost. Performance is good thanks to the AMD Fusion processor and fast hard drive but this still isn't going to be as quick as traditional 13-inch laptops.

13.4": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.7 kg: This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
