It weighs under three pounds and features a new 16:9 aspect ratio 13.4-inch widescreen display with LED backlighting (1366x768 resolution). At its thinnest point, it measures only 0.77 inches. MSI claims the notebook can go for up to ten hours on its available eight-cell battery; it comes standard with a four-cell.

Specifications include an Intel Atom Z530 processor running at 1.6GHz, up to 2GB DDR2 RAM, a 2.5-inch hard drive, three USB ports, and a built-in 3.5G network card.

Re: MSI X-slim laptop with pentium processor

The Atom-based X320s will cost less than US$1000, while X-Slim laptops with Pentium chips inside will cost over US$1,000.

The difference between two microprocessor are :

The Atom consumes less power so batteries last longer. But the chips are also far less powerful than microprocessors aimed at mainstream laptop PCs, such as Intel Pentium microprocessors.

Most netbooks with Atom chips use Microsoft Windows XP or a Linux OS, while Microsoft Windows Vista is used on mainstream laptop PCs.

The Atom chips are designed on devices that are mainly used to surf the Web and for Office-like programs. More intensive programs such as video-editing software and high speed games don't work well on systems designed around the chips.
