Enticed by the FX600 but need something slightly more compact? Keep your eye on the 14-inch FX400, which isn't shipping just yet. It's advertised with the same general specs, including an i5 CPU, 1GB GeForce GT 325M graphics, and 250GB to 500GB of storage. We don't see Optimus mentioned on any official page, but we hope it's present on both systems as they have a discrete Nvidia GPU with Intel's on-chip IGP.
Other hardware includes a DVD drive, an HD webcam on the FX600 and a 1.3MP camera for the FX400, USB 2.0 ports, an eSATA combo, VGA and HDMI outputs, a multi-card reader, wired and wireless network connectivity, optional Bluetooth v2.1, and a 6-cell battery. The FX600 weighs 2.41kg (5.31lbs), while the smaller FX400 shaves that to 2.2kg (4.85lbs). It goes without saying that both use Windows 7 Home Premium.
