MSI Unveils X360 Notebook with Intel Core i5 Page: 1

MSI yesterday added to its X-Slim notebook line-up with the release of the new ultra-chic X360 model. The new notebook is based on Intel’s Arrandale ULV chips and has been designed to deliver both affordability and high-performance.

The new X360 features an ultra-slim design that is less than 1-inch thick. At just 1.4kgs, the new system is also an ultra-portable one. Its sleek, feather design lines are consistent with the other models of the X-Slim series; that plus MSI’s own rhombic pattern and diamond design gives the X360 a distinctive and beautiful look and style.

On the inside, MSI has equipped the X360 with the 32nm Intel Core i5 processor featuring Intel Turbo Boost and Hyperthreading technology. So the notebook is effectively armed for delivering much better performance than its X-Slim series predecessors. The new CULV processor also means the X360 runs for an amazing 9 hours on a fully charged battery.

Though MSI hasn’t been forthcoming on the price or availability of the X360, it did say that the notebook will be placed in the affordable range. So the X360 should not be carrying a premium price tag. Considering the decent enhancements made by the manufacturer, it should make a good buy for lovers of ultra-portable notebooks.
