MSI Marks a New Era of Slim, Thin, and Light Notebooks With Its Latest X-Slim Series

TAIPEI, Taiwan --(Business Wire)-- MSI today announced that it has successfully reaffirmed its leading position by introducing a series of X-Slim laptops of various sizes. Following the success of the trend setter X-Slim X340, MSI plans to unveil the 14" X-Slim X400 and the 15" X-Slim X600 in the second quarter of 2009.

The X-Slim X600 and X400 have set records for lightness and thinness in their size categories. The 14" X-Slim X400, which comes with a super slender Li-poly battery, weighs only 1.5kg, and the 15" X-Slim X600 tips the scales at just 2.1kg with battery. Less than one inch thick, both models boast 16:9 theater-class LED screens, full I/O ports, and Blu-Ray support. The X600 also comes equipped with a discrete graphic card to maximize visual performance.

The X-Slim X340, with Intel® Core™2 Solo ULV Processor, offers super long battery life with MSI's proprietary ECO Engine and weighs less than 1.3kg with 4 cell battery. X340 not only provides superior functionality to end users, but also triggers another trend in the ultra slim notebook sector.

MSI's latest X-Slim series notebook features an optional 8 cell Long-endurance battery for X340 and X400 and an optional 9 cell Long-endurance battery for X600. To catch with the current market trend, all X-Slim series notebooks adopt external ODD drivers, which further enhances the slim, thin and light characters of X-Slim series.

"I believe MSI's latest X-Slim Series is a complete line of products designed to set new industry standards and the introduction of the X-Slim Series will further strengthens our position in the notebook market and helps us reach a new development milestone," said Mr. Joseph Hsu, Chief Executive Officer of MSI.
