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

Our Score:


A single-core processor means the X340 trails the Acer Aspire 4810 by as much as 65 per cent. Basics such as web browsing and word processing should pose no problems, but intensive tasks like video and image editing will cause noticeable slow-down. Performance is comparable to the AMD powered HP Pavilion dv2, but heat and noise is significantly lower.

Excellent review and I wholly agree with it having had the loan of an X340 for several days now on the outside it turns heads and everyone wants to look, but start using it and it falls down. The plastic feels hollow and it's really not that really worth £750 unless you live by style alone.

Can you please comment on the performace of the Core 2 Solo SU3500 in regards to playing BBC iPlayer HD streams, and also Youtube HD videos. Do they play ok? This is the only thing holding me back from getting one of these, that is the only question left I need answering.

Many Thanks
