Small and price well makes this a good notebook for mobile users
MSI has announced that it is now shipping its slim and sleek little ultraportable computer called the X370. The little machine has an AMD dual-core E-350 APU inside and runs Windows 7 Home Premium. It is more notebook than netbook with a larger 13.4-inch screen and a keyboard with more room to type than a netbook.
The processor urns at 1.6GHz and has a 1MB cache. The company is offered in black only and the keyboard surround looks like carbon fiber to me. The resolution of the glossy 13.4-inch is 1366 x 768. It has the A50M FCH chipset and it uses an AMD Radeon HD6310 GPU. The GPU has no memory of its own and uses the system memory.
The onboard sound system of the notebook is a pair of speakers with 2W power each. It has 4GB of RAM and has 500GB of storage. The little notebook lacks an optical drive, which is common in this segment. MSI adds in Gigabit LAN and 802.11b/g/n WiFi and the notebook has an integrated 4-in-1 memory card reader.
Other features include a VGA output and a HDMI output, dual USB 3.0 ports, had inputs for a mic and headphones. The battery the machine uses is an 8-cell unit and MSI promises all-day battery life. The X370 measures 12.77" x 8.94" x 0.9" and weighs 3.11 pounds. It will be a very portable machine that appeals to mobile types. One of the best features is the price the X370 sells for $599.
“We designed the X370 for those who want a fully functioning notebook in a compact form, with long battery life,” noted Andy Tung, vice president of sales for MSI US. “Most of us think of battery life in terms of convenience: time away from our office or power cord. It’s innovators like Smallbean that remind us that longer battery life also means using less power, which is what truly makes a difference in rural areas, and around the world.”
