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.

AMD Radeon HD 8330:

An integrated GCN-based GPU with 128 shader units and no dedicated VRAM. It is typically clocked at 500 MHz and paired with AMD Richland A4-5000 "Kabini" APUs.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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


A4-5000: Quad-core APU for low-end laptops, codenamed Kabini. Based on the Jaguar architecture. Integrates an Radeon HD 8330 graphics card.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.

MSI is not present in the smartphone market. As a laptop manufacturer, MSI has a medium market share and is not among the Top 10 global manufacturers. The ratings of MSI laptops are above average in the tests (as of 2016).


66.5%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
