Exquisitely crafted MSI S30 NB hits market
Press release [Monday 28 January 2013]
At the beginning of 2013, MSI, which just brought home 11 awards for products from the 21st Taiwan Excellence Awards, has set its sights on the market for NBs with high portability and high functionality. Its answer: the slim S30.
This beautifully built laptop boasts a minimalist chassis characterized by flowing lines. And its extensive functionality, green-energy design, and extended battery life make it the ideal work station for anyone on-the-go. The Intel third generation Ivy Bridge Core i3 processor and friendly multimedia are just part of the reason the S30 stands a cut above the multitude of other laptops out there.
Mobile platform for home, work, anywhere
Eric Kuo, associate vice president for global sales, MSI Notebook, points out that the slender new S30, a continuation of MSI's tradition of minimalist design, packs a lot into a small package. The aluminum magnesium alloy casing is both light and sturdy. The HDMI and USB3.0 ports ensure that using and sharing large multimedia files is quick and efficient. The touchpad is 20% larger than traditional ones for smoother, easier use and the multi-touch finger technology let you accomplish more. In addition to coming preloaded with Windows 8, the S30 sports a full array of I/O ports, including a card reader, BT4.0, and LAN. The powerful S30 is the ideal choice for on-the-go word processing, professional multimedia reading and editing, or young people who like online social networking.
Intel 3G Core i multi-core processor
The S30 features the Intel 3 Gen Ivy Bridge Core i3 processor employing the latest 22nm production technology, enhancing frequency and performance, while reducing power consumption by 50%. It is 15% faster than the previous generation in terms of the production and online sharing of videos. It supports DDR3-1333 DRAM and comes with USB3.0 for data transfer that is 10X faster than the previous generation.
Newest Intel integrated chip
The S30 packs Intel's latest HD4000 integrated chip, greatly enhancing the fluidity of 3D gaming graphics. It racked up over 4200 points on the 3D Mark 06 test. The all-new IGP supports the new Microsoft DX11, OpenCL v1.1, and OpenGL 3.1 and the QuickSync Video 2.0 codec is twice as fast as the previous generation.
Intel Rapid Start on Technology
The optional SSD saves power and boots the S30 up five times faster than traditional hard drives for a more efficient mobile experience. SSDs also protect your data against shock, further enhancing mobility.
Crystal clear sound output
The 1.4-kilogram S30 may be diminutive, but it packs high fidelity speakers which, with the THX TruStudio Pro wrap around sound, provide you faithful sound for a more enjoyable movie, music, and gaming experience. MSI's own sound positioning technology ensures that the user can clearly distinguish subtle differences in sound whether watching films or enjoying music. The sound quality, regardless of frequency, is crisp and clear, making the S30 ideal for the distinguishing ear.
