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.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

1.7 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
