The X430 still features a 14" 1366x768 display, and remaining specs include 2GB of DDR2 667MHz RAM (single DIMM, maxed out), Radeon HD 3200 graphics, 320GB or 500GB of storage, 802.11n Wi-Fi, gigabit Ethernet, HDMI, VGA, two USB 2.0 ports, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, a multi-card reader, as well as headphone and mic jacks. The system can also be configured with an optional external DVD or Blu-ray drive, and a four or eight-cell battery.
Full system weight is about 1.5kg (3.3lbs) with a battery, and the X-Slim X430 will ship with Windows 7 Home Premium. MSI has kept quiet about the X430's release date and price. On a semi-related note, we just reviewed the X-Slim X340, which is a worthwhile read if you're at all interested in the series.
