MSI launches EX310 Puma notebook

Red is the way to go

MSI has announced a new addition to its lineup of notebooks based on AMD's Puma platform. Dubbed the EX310, this new 13.3-inch notebook weighs just 1.9kg and packs an ATI Mobility HD 3450 discrete graphics card.

The MSI EX310 measures 310x230x25-37mm (LxWxH) and weighs 1.9kg with a powerful 8-cell battery. The low weight and compact dimensions sound great if you consider the fact that this beast packs quite a punch and that most 12.1-inch models are just marginally lighter and have a comparable footprint.

With ATI HD 3450 graphics and AMD Turion X2 Ultra dual-core processors paired up with ATI's RX781M+SB700 chipset, the EX310 should handle most tasks with ease. The 13.3-inch glare screen has a resolution of 1280x800. The top version will come with 3,072MB of memory, 250GB HDD and multi DVD.

Other features worth mentioning include an HDMI connector, fingerprint reader, AI Array microphone, 2.0MP web cam, Dolby surround sound, Gigabit LAN, Bluetooth V2.0+EDR, Wi-Fi 802.11bgn and Windows Vista Home Premium.

The EX310 should sell around the €799 mark, while its Intel based sibling, the EX300 powered by a Core 2 Duo T8400 2x 2.26GHz, costs around €950.

This is what this little red beast looks like, much better than the old S300 series from MSI.
