The EX300 is a new Centrino 2 based laptop from MSI, targeted at those interested in the latest technology packed with a mobile but productive screen size. With a 13.3" screen, and weighing only 4.2 pounds, the EX300 does not compete with ultra portable options, but it remains fairly mobile and much more powerful. Containing the latest Intel Core 2 Duos, the best in connectivity options and an ATI Radeon HD3450 with 256MB of dedicated DDR3 VRAM, the EX300 is not without its pitfalls: only using 512MB or 1GB of older and slower DDR2 ram, compared to the faster, more expensive DDR3 that the centrino 2 platform allows for. Available in blue and red.
