MSI’s X-Slim series comes in a variety of screen sizes. The X400 is the 14 inch model. The range puts the accent on a nice, light, sexy line. According to MSI it allies technology and design and is an indispensable accessory for the style conscious that you can take with you anywhere. An intermediary model in the X-Slim range, the X400-038 deserved a better configuration, closer to the X600-015. As things stand, it suffers from low performance, poor audio and average design. It makes up for things with battery life, as long as you use the 8-cell.

MSI reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.

Intel Core 2 Solo:

SU3500: Power efficient single core processor for small subnotebooks that is based on the Penryn core and includes all features (like Virtualization, C6 state, ...). The performance should be comparable with a 1.7 GHz Athlon II Neo K125.

1.5 kg:

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

1.5 kg:


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
