MSI X-Slim Series X340 and X600 notebooks

After debuting the X-Slim ultra portable X-Slim notebook at CES, MSI is ready to announce the latest products in the X-Slim series, X340 and X600 at CeBIT! The all-new X340 and X600 both feature Intel ULV architecture for performance and power saving advantages. This is another new mark in the history of the notebook market!


X-Slim is the new product lineup this year from MSI. The product series aims for ?Light, Slim, Aesthetic? product designs to challenge the senses of consumers and extremes of notebooks. After the X320 was introduced to the world, it has become a hot topic among consumers. Sam Chern, MSI?s marketing director, mentioned that ?Light, Slim, Aesthetic? is going higher up the list of consumers? notebook purchase decisions. As a result, MSI is leading the pack with X320 and will be further expanding upon the X-Slim series with more innovative ultra portable notebooks.

X340 ultra portable notebook, making its first showing at CeBIT, shares the same specifications as X320, including the golden ratio 16:9 cinematic 13? LED display, weight of just 1.3kg, thickest point at 1.98cm thin and just 6mm at its thinnest. This notebook is even thinner than a small pack of tissue paper!

However, in direct contrast with X320, which was designed for consumers with long life mobile computing needs, the X340 is designed for users with multimedia requirements. Therefore, while X320 features the Intel Menlow platform, X340 uses the Intel Centrino mobile platform with ULV CPU architecture, which provides the user with performance, multimedia features, as well as power saving advantages. Even more amazing is that the total power consumption is merely one sixth of other notebook computers!

Not only that, X340 also comes with the complete multimedia feature set, including full I/O ports, HDMI port, as well as Blu-Ray support! For network connectivity, X340 features 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi connection, Bluetooth connection, and even optional WiMAX modules!

X340 is offered in three different colors for the preference of different consumers, which are: Splendid Champagne Gold, Elegant Pearl White and Stylish Techno Black. The stylish exterior and elegant design makes it a fashion statement for trendy consumers.

MSI also introduced the ultra portable concept and design to the larger notebook models. The newest X600 is equipped with a 16:9 widescreen 15? display but weighs only 2kg ? rewriting the history of large display notebooks! Sam Chern, MSI?s marketing director, mentioned that X600 with Intel Centrino mobile platform and ULV CPU would focus on the 16? notebook market and achieve new heights in sales!

Re: MSI X-Slim Series X340 and X600 notebooks

Thus far the X-Slims have only been unveiled in China, and details, such as the processor and chipset platform, are still unclear. It was reported that MSI might go beyond the typical Atom package and offer these with a beefier Pentium-class chip, or perhaps even utilize Nvidia's Ion platform for HD graphics (HDMI output coming standard on these machines seems to make a decent case for the later
