MSI X-Slim X360 is under 1" thick, packs ULV Core i5

By on
The notebook market is now brimming with Intel Arrandale-based machines, and the latest is from MSI. First teased at CES, the company's new X-Slim X360 is the first to use a low-voltage Core i5 processor.

The dual-core i5-520UM features a 1.06GHz base speed with a maximum Turbo Boost frequency of 1.86GHz, and Hyper-Threading technology. The X-Slim X360 would be a great solution for folks on the run, weighing a mere 3.09 pounds, measuring less than an inch thick, and boasting up to nine hours of battery life.

That said, it doesn't skimp on functionality, carrying a 13-inch 1,366x768 display, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, up to 500GB of storage, HDMI and VGA-out, a pair of USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, an SD/MCC card reader, and a 1.3-megapixel webcam. The notebook can be configured with either a four or eight-cell battery, and it runs Windows 7 Home Premium.

Pricing and availability is still unknown, but MSI should spill the beans soon enough.
