Reviews for the MSI X370

MSI X370 Review: Fusion Hardware, Ultraportable Chassis
Source: PC Perspective English
Even so, this laptop has a combination of traits that makes it stand out from many competitors. If you need a portable laptop, and you need decent performance, and you need over six hours of battery life, all for under $600, the MSI is going to be a top choice. Only the ASUS 1215N and 1215B come to mind as solid alternatives, but both are significantly smaller, which will be a deal-breaker for some buyers.

MSI X-Slim X370 Fusion Powered Ultraportable Review
Source: Hot Hardware English
We're fans of AMD's Zacate processor. What AMD has been able to accomplish with Fusion is to be applauded, and while it took a while for a legitimate Atom contender to show up, we happy now that it's here. The E-350 is a great APU, and the X370 nicely showcases what AMD has worked so hard for.

80% MSI X370
Source: Laptop Mag English
At $550 less than the 13-inch MacBook Air, the MSI X370 is a budget-friendly alternative to that machine for those looking for an ultraportable that lasts a long time on a charge. Although the $749 MSI X370 is considerably less expensive than its predecessor, it offers better performance and battery life. Overall we prefer the soft-touch design of the $549 HP Pavilion dm3t, which is heavier but has a faster Core i3 processor. But if you want slightly beefier graphics and even longer endurance, this svelte ultraportable will do the trick. Just make sure you get the eight-cell battery.
