MSI X-Slim X600 Gets Featured
MSI’s X-slim series X600 notebook has led to lot of expectations since its announcement; however, specifications for the flagship notebook have been kept under wraps by the manufacturer. A leak late last week however has brought many-a-detail into the open.
Reportedly designed to take on the MacBook Air, the X600 is enviably thin at less than one-inch and weighs around 4.6lbs. According to the specifications revealed, there are two models of the X600, both powered by Intel’s CULV platform and featuring 1366×768 resolution 15.6in screens.
The first version carries a 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Solo with 4GB of RAM and a 500GB HDD. Integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and Ethernet provide good connectivity options. The second version offers a 1.2GHz Intel Celeron processor with 3GB of RAM and a smaller, 320GB HDD. While Wi-Fi and Ethernet are included, this version is missing Bluetooth.
Common features on both notebooks include a VGA port, three USB ports, and the standard audio I/O ports in addition to a webcam. A memory card reader, full-size keyboard with separate numeric keypad, and 6-cell lithium-polymer battery rounds-up the specifications. On the graphics side of things, support comes in the form of the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 chipset, which has 512MB of VRAM and HDMI output.
Not a bad set of specifications; though enthusiasts might be expecting more. The X600s will become available in Italy at the end of this month with a price tag of $1320 for the 1.4GHz model and $1120 for the 1.2GHz model.
