MSI X-Slim X340 Notebook Review

By on
In the world of notebooks, Apple is an indisputable trend setter. Case in point, the 13-inch Averatec N3400 that we recently reviewed had an aluminum outer shell, while the Acer Timeline 4810T used island-style keys like those found on MacBooks. Not surprisingly, however, those two laptops are considerably less expensive than anything on Apple's product line.

Today we'll be taking a look at the X-Slim X340, a very slim notebook from MSI that's been labeled by many as the budget alternative to the MacBook Air. Currently selling for $600, MSI hopes to lure potential buyers with its svelte design and extended battery life.


The MSI X340 weighs in at only 3.2 pounds with the included 8-cell battery and is powered by Intel's Core 2 Solo SU3500 CULV processor operating at 1.4GHz. It comes equipped with 2GB of DDR2 -- its maximum supported capacity -- a 320GB SATA hard drive, 13.4" LCD display sporting a 1366 x 768 resolution, Intel GMA 4500MHD integrated graphics, and 802.11b/g/n wireless connectivity.
