Live the Dream of Cruising the Great Barrier Reef
with the MSI Global Creative Video Challenge!

Manila, Philippines – July 29, 2009
The top news in this year's travel industry was without a doubt Tourism Queensland's "Best Job in the World" competition to find a conservation worker to work at the world-renowned "Great Barrier Reef". As this job came with a 150,000 Australian dollars salary for 6-months work, it was soon deluged with applications. Only one opening was available so when the winner was announced, all the other candidates could only sigh in disappointment.

You might have missed out on the chance of securing the "Best Job in the World" to swim among coral atolls and see colorful sea life, but don't lose hope yet! MSI is now running the "Global Creative Video Challenge". The challenge will run from July 15 through to September 15. To enter, citizens of the world simply have to produce a creative short film running from 10 to 20 seconds that features an MSI notebook as the main character.

MSI's "Global Creative Video Challenge" will select 15 winners from all around the world. Not only will each winner receive an MSI X-Slim X340 – the hottest slim aesthetic notebook this year – but they will also win a free trip to the Great Barrier Reef near Australia. For more information about the competition, please visit

The MSI X-Slim X340 slim aesthetic notebook features a 16:9 aspect ratio cinema-grade 13" LED LCD. Weighing just 1.3kg, the X340 has a maximum thickness of 19.8mm and is just 6mm at its thinnest point, making it almost thinner than the small packets of tissues you find in the supermarket! The X340 is based on Intel's latest power-saving CULV mobile processing architecture which delivers performance, multimedia functionality and power savings all in one package! What's really amazing is the fact that it uses just one-sixth the power of conventional notebooks! The X340 also comes with a complete suite of multimedia and network features including a full set of I/O ports, HDMI port, Blu-ray support, 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi wireless networking and Bluetooth wireless connectivity!

Availability and pricing

Estimated pricing for MSI X340 is Php 49,999.00, now available locally from MSI dealers and resellers. If you need more product information, please visit

About MSI Notebook
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 8 series of notebook computers to meet the expectations for every consumer, and they are the Gaming, Aesthetics, Professional, Entertainment, Wind Netbook, Value, Classic and X Slim Series.
