Like the other X-Slim models the MSI X-Slim X350 is very slim and sleek, but also offers more power than a typical netbook. It uses the Intel CULV (Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage) platform for energy saving, along with the high performance Intel Core 2 Duo processor.
The MSI X350 is the first X-Slim model to feature a dual-core CULV processor, giving it more power than previous models, but also keeping things very slim and energy efficient. Unlike most netbooks which come with a 3 or 6 cell battery, the X350 gives you the choice of a 4 or 8 cell battery, which provide up to 9 hours of run time.
The X350 is similar to the X340, with a performance boost. It measures less than 0.78 inches thick, weighs less than 1.5kg, and will feature the Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 or Intel Pentium Dual Core SU4100 processor.
Other features include a 320GB / 500GB hard drive, Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics, HDMI output, 2GB of RAM, 1.3MP webcam, and a 13.4-inch display with a 1355 x 768 pixel resolution. IF HDMI isn’t your thing, there is also VGA output, along with 2x USB 2.0, 1x E-SATA (USB combo), Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and optional DVD Super-Multi / Blu-Ray drive.
If you don’t want a full size heavy laptop, nor a netbook, the MSI X-Slim X350 fits perfect in the space between both, offering portability, very long battery life and performance.
No word on the X350’s release date or price just yet, but it will probably be announced next month at CES 10.
