MSI Notebook’s goal is to become the most trusted name in laptop computers. We have worked hard over the years to enhance the user’s experience. We stand by our principles of breakthroughs in design, the pursuit of excellence, and technological innovation as we have continued to raise the bar for ourselves and have accomplished a great deal of pioneering work in the industry. Examples include developing Turbo Power, ECO Engine and Cinema Pro technologies. MSI Notebook was also the first laptop manufacturer globally to be awarded True Dolby Home Theater Surround Sound certification.

MSI Notebook designs its products with the consumer in mind starting at the R&D stage. To ensure that consumers use MSI laptop computers with peace of mind, each MSI laptop computer undergoes a series of detailed testing before it is shipped from the factory. We test pressure and humidity, shock and vibration as well as the life spans of connector hinges, keyboards, and touch panels. Some of the other tests (around 30 tests in total) include pressure and dropping, I/O connectors, noise, antistatic capabilities, and system performance. We carefully check each detail employing the most rigorous testing standards, so that the consumer uses their new MSI laptop computer knowing that MSI Notebook stands behind its products.

So far, MSI Notebook has introduced 7 series of notebook computers to meet the expectations for every consumer, and they are the Gaming Series, Aesthetics Series, Professional Series, Entertainment Series, Ultra Portable Series, X-Slim Series and Value Series.
