S30

MSI recommends Windows 8.

Overview

 

 

 

 
The latest Click Pad design for gesture touch
 
The S30 features the latest buttonless trackpad which allows you to perform a number of commands like clicking, dragging, scrolling, and selecting with your fingertips. The trackpad is 20% larger for a better, more satisfying experience.
 
mSATA SSD optional for performance boost up*
 
We've made the mSATA SSD smaller and lighter than conventional SSDs without sacrificing functionality or performance. The greatest advantage of the SSD can speed up read-write time for faster boot-ups and quicker response times. You'll be impressed with the mSATA SSD's superior read-write performance.
*mSATA SSD optional
 
 
THX TruStudio Pro Provides Excellent Surround Sound Effect
 
THX TruStudio Pro is specially designed to bring the same great audio experience found in live performances, films, and recording studios- to the PC. THX TruStudio Pro provides the latest groundbreaking technologies that are products of years of collective experience and research by Creative and THX. Together, these technologies deliver the fullest audio experience for music, movies and games, while remaining true to the source and intention of the artists who created it.
 
 
 
The latest Bluetooth 4.0 technology
 
The major improvement of Bluetooth 4.0 over 3.0 is that devices transfer much more data, using less power. Devices can also connect and begin transferring data in as little as 3 milliseconds. It also effectively transfers data within a greatly expanded range (over 100 meters) and uses the AES-128 CCM authenticated encryption algorithm, ensuring better security.
 
Supports HDMI 1.4 for HD pictures
 
The new HDMI 1.4 Ethernet Channel integrates Internet-enabled HDMI equipment, allowing you to connect to the Internet without other cables. There's no need to add cables if you want to add an audio channel as you can just use the HDMI cable to transmit audio streams to A/V receivers. The supports extreme HD for a better, more true-to-life, and natural picture
 
 
 
Latest & fastest Data Transfer Technology USB 3.0
 
USB 3.0 can reach transfer rates of 4.8GB per second, 10 times the bandwidth of the current USB 2.0. A 27GB HD file (about as large as a 4 hour HD video) can be transferred within 70 seconds, so HD video and 3D game playback speeds are even faster. USB 3.0 is also capable of executing read/write data operations, while USB 2.0 can only execute unidirectional document transfers in the same amount of time.
 
Long battery life for all-day computing
 
An impressive *10 hours of battery life gives you the power to do more - especially for all those times when you're out and about.
 
 
Built-in 720P HD Webcam offering the best video call experience
