MSI X-Slim X340-043UK - 13.4in Laptop

 

At just 19.8mm thick the X-Slim X340 lives up to its name, but can it deliver where it matters?

MSI X-slim X340 notebook

 

MSI unveiled their X-Slim series of portable computers way back in January, at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronic Show. The X340 made a bit of a splash at the event due to its look, design, overall size and build quality, which were all fairly...

Extremely thin laptop, HDMI port

Very "flexible" keyboard, below average battery life

As another take, from another manufacturer, on the MacBook Air, it performs well enough to be a contender on most fronts. Although it doesn’t have the powerful graphics seen within that notebook, it’s still good enough for most people’s needs.

MSI X-Slim X340 review

 

Skinny as a low-fat latte but without a premium price, is the MSI X-Slim the MacBook Air for the masses?

More than a netbook but not quite a proper portable PC, this is a good compromise but not an essential purchase

MSI X340 review

 

MSI's X340 is portable and stylish, but lacking in performance

Extremely portable ; Great styling

Poor multimedia performance ; Difficult keyboard

Ultraportable and ultra-stylish, but lacks the performance you'd hope for at the price

MSI X340 review

 

MSI's new X-Slim series laptops are the closest clone yet of Apple's MacBook Air. And thanks to its use of plastic casing and cheaper components, the X340 also hits a lower price point - but will it prove as attractive as the ultrathin and ultralight...

It may be exactly two-thirds the price of the MacBook Air, but we can’t help feeling that you’re getting only half the laptop in most respects. It lacks the speed, solidity and grace of the Apple envelope-filler, although some may be tempted by the...

MSI X340 review

 

The MSI X340 has a 13.4in widescreen display and a new single-core Intel processor.

MSI X-Slim X-340

 

Having just reviewed a rather nice Vista PC with a 1.4GHz Intel processor the next unit in has exactly the same processor and memory configuration, this unit also has a very thin screen and is also quite nice and light.

The MSI X-Slim X-340 measures 33x22.5x1.5cm and weights less than 1.3kilos. It is black, matt on the base and keyboard surround, but rather strangely fingermark showing shiny black for the screen surround and lid. It has an 87key keyboard with all but...

MSI - X340 notebook

 

Ever since the ultra-slim MacBook Air came out about a year ago, computer manufacturers have been falling over themselves to produce similar models that are exceptionally thin and stylish and will fill in that middle ground ...

Stunning to look at, lightweight and with a host of unexpected peripherals, the X340 is nevertheless let down by a sub-standard keyboard and the need for a separate external optical drive to make the most of the new Intel Core 2 Solo processor.

MSI X340. Decent performance in a beautiful design

 

We hope to induce hyperthermia while testing this hot new netbook/subnote/notebook in the summer heat.

Design ; Display (resolution and widescreen) ; Materials ; Weight ; Connectivity ; Heat ; Noise or lack thereof

Battery life. This can be improved by an 8-celled battery upgrade though

MSI gives us a fine notebook equipped with the right components. That in itself is reflected in a higher price, of course, but in addition to the nice hardware you also get what is in my opinion the hottest notebook in this particular segment to date.

MSI X-Slim X340

 

The MSI X-Slim X340 is one of the first ultra slim full size laptops set to take the world like swine flu. It's got a 13 inch screen, 2GB of RAM, 320GB HDD, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a HDMI port, 2 USB ports, an Intel CULV 1.4GHz processor and a 3.5hr battery...

It's nice to see MSI bringing a cheap rival to the MacBook Air to the market, and refreshing to find that Apple isn't always leading the way when it comes to style. But a few unnecessary build problems will niggle - until you see the pricetag. Good...

Product Specifications

The concept for the bottom framing of the X340 originated from the lightness of the feather as well as its elegance and richness, further freeing MSI's notebook from the traditional grimness. Make the X340 the world's lightest and slimmest 13.4" notebook. The X340 has ingeniously applied fashionable curves in its design which successfully abandoned the cold and lifeless vibe of the traditional notebook computers. The material is gentler to the touch compared the metal, and the paint finish is glazed and UV processed, added with the perfect ratio as a total package, creating the most simplistic yet modern styling, fitting for the most contemporary trend anywhere. With all these unique features, it proves that the X340 is not only a fashionable and appealing notebook computer; it also set very high marks for the entire industry. These great reasons are why the X340 should be highly recommended to all of the contemporary metropolitans anywhere.
