The MSI X460DX is a very portable 14-inch laptop that has a solid, brushed-aluminum design with lots of offer. It has two of the latest USB 3.0 ports, an Intel Core i5 CPU, 6GB of RAM and discrete graphics. This is definitely a mobile laptop for power users, but it's not without some minor flaws.

The MSI X460DX may not hold the title of "lightest" or "most powerful" or "longest battery life," but it is certainly well rounded. It's light enough to carry around daily, powerful enough to finish everything but the most resource-intensive tasks, and long-lived enough to last through a flight across the country. Plus, its design is forward-thinking with two USB 3.0 ports, and it costs well under $1000.

MSI X460DX 14" Core i5 Notebook Review
Source: Hot Hardware English
All in all, MSI has managed to exceed our expectations in most departments with the X460DX. For those who aren't concerned with the somewhat underwhelming screen resolution or camel-like battery life, this is a machine that is definitely worth your consideration. At $850, perhaps a few corners had to be cut, but at least they weren't areas that affected performance and overall usability in any way.

The $849 MSI X460DX offers a strong balance of performance, graphics, and endurance in a modest, unassuming package. We appreciated the 6 and a half hours of battery life as well as the system's vibrant display. However, we weren't fans of its keyboard, speakers, or build quality issues. Users who want more productivity power, a better keyboard, and more solid build quality--but don't need discrete graphics--might want to check out the business-oriented Lenovo ThinkPad T420, which offers a 2.3-GHz Core i5-2410M CPU with 4GB of RAM, a 320GB, 7,200-rpm hard drive, and Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU for $854. Those looking for a less-expensive option with comparable graphics muscle should consider the $799 Acer Aspire TimelineX 4820TG-6847. Still, if you want a 14-inch system that can handle work and play equally well and last through the day, you'll find a lot to like in the MSI X460DX.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:

Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.9 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
