The MSI X370 is one of the three pounds “thin and light” laptop which recently launched AMD “Fusion” processor uses the “Brazos” family. This particular AMD Fusion processor is probably the 18-watt “Zacate” that is used by most manufacturers at CES. It packs a lot of punch per watt “, especially when it comes to graphics and multimedia applications like on ASUS N53JF-XE1. In absolute terms, it’s not a speed demon, but compared to other netbooks in the same price, the performance gains are noticeable.
The MSI X370 has a 13.3 “(1366 x 768) LED-backlit display that is controlled by the integrated Radeon HD 6310 graphics processor (GPU). It is possible to add up to 4 GB of system memory (RAM) and up to 640GB of disk storage (mechanical drives only, not SSD). There are two USB ports and a SSD card reader.
The design of the MSI X370 looks very nice. It is less than 1 cm thick and the laptop has an interesting “carbon-fiber-looking” texture on the inside (not the actual carbon fiber). This should be a very capable laptop for productivity tasks, web browsing and web video. It should also be able basic gaming.
