A marketing officer revealed in an email that MSI’s upcoming X-Slim X340 Notebook will definitely arrive in the Philippines next quarter and based on previous reports, could be as early as April.
This 13″ ultra-slim notebook from MSI only weighs 1.3kg (2.8lbs) and as thin as 6mm (19.8mm at its thickest), certainly a very close call to the Macbook air’s 4mm to 19.4mm figures.
The specs will be something like:
MSI X340 Ultra Slim Notebook
Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500 1.4GHz
13.4″ (1,366 x 768 pixel, 16:9 widescreen)
Intel GMA 4500 MDH graphics
250GB to 320GB HDD
1-2GB RAM (max 4GB)
Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n
There’s no ODD included and the retail price is still not fixed but MSI Philippines is targeting an SRP of Php49,999 which will be dependent on the prevailing exchange rate at launch date.
