MSI XSlim X340 launched and priced

MSI Philippines officially launched the MSI XSlim X340 today, the thinnest notebook coming out of its XSeries line (or less often referred to as “the challenger to the Macbook Air”).

Msi Xslim X340

This 13.4″ notebook has a 16:9 aspect ratio and is 6mm at it’s thinnest edge and 20mm at it’s thickest base yet managed to weigh just 1.3kg (2.87 lbs). From afar, you’d easily mistake this notebook as a Mac Air.

MSI Product Manager Iris Chuang admitted that they chose an Intel ULV processor instead of an Atom to strike a balance between performance and battery life. The X340 runs on an Intel Core 2 Solo ULV SU3500 @ 1.4GHz. Official specs listed below:

MSI XSlim X340
Intel Core 2 Solo ULV SU3500 @ 1.4GHz
13.4″ TFT LCD (1366×768 pixels)
GMA 4500MDH
250GB/320GB/500GB SATA HDD
2GB DDR2 RAM
1.3MP webcam
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
2-in-1 card reader
Bluetooth 2.0
2 x USB 2.0 ports
1 D-Sub (VGA)
4 or 8 cell battery

There’s an optional WiMax 802.16e wireless module embedded into the system which is cool since we have  WiMax services already available in the country. 

MSI is also including an external DVD Super-Multi drive. The only worry here might be the pre-installed OS — MS Windows Vista Home Premium. It would be interesting to see how the lower-clocked 1.4GHz CULV fare against an Atom N280 1.66GHz if MSI is claiming they chose performance over battery life (5.5watts vs. 2 watts).

Yung nabili kong Acer Aspire Timeline 5810T sobrang bagal! hinde sya pwede sa multi-tasking…nag open lang ako ng skype at isang web browser nag hung na…pati sa movie…humihinto hinto…

sayang lang pera nyo…wag na kayo bumili…

whoa.. congratulations pepe.

anyway.. this one makes a great Hackintosh, at least the parts came from a known PC manufacturer unlike some “Xing JONg Zhooo Whaaha” factory in China.

This would make an awesome Linux laptop, if everything is supported.

Nah, too much expensive for a non macbook. I’ll prefer standard notebooks than this one. It looks fragile to me
