MSI X-Slim X360 Ultraportable Notebook almost pips a Netbook

March 9, 2010, By Atul Roach

If there are two things which can push me to buy a notebook over a netbook, it has to be the overall sizing and the integration of an ULV processor. The just announced MSI X-Slim X360 ultra-portable somehow is that kind of an offering which can have others thinking like the way I think.

Obviously I loved the black and gold MSI Wind U160 netbook but then there are reasons for me to admire the 13-inch MSI X360 haling from the X-Slim Lineage.

It features a host of attractions and leading the pile is the Core i5-520UM processor which belongs to the Intel Core 2010 lineup. The notebook measures a modest 1″ in thickness which is why it can always be preferred to a netbook especially when you are also getting a bigger 13″ 1366×768 display.

The processor gets a combination of up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM with hard drives ranging between 250GB and 500GB. Things are better with the presence of Intel’s Turbo Boost/Hyper-Threading technology.

There are outputs for HDMI and VGA along with a couple of USB 2.0 ports.The notebook promises 9 hours of battery life and it also gets WiFi, Bluetooth, a 1.3MP webcam and 2 built-in speakers. The price of this notebook remains undisclosed as of now. [via: Engadget]
