MSI launches X-Slim X430, goes with AMD instead of Intel
MSI appends another notebook to its ‘X-Slim’ series by launching the X430. Its their latest offering in the increasingly popular ‘ultra-thin feather-light’ category. MSI has gone with AMD’s second generation Athlon Neo X2 dual core processor ditching Intel. Although this move was somewhat expected, but nevertheless it did raise some eye-brows as most of MSI’s rival have opted for Intel’s CULV processors.
Although weighing just 1.5 kgs, it does pack in some decent punch, enough to handle day to day tasks with ease. Running Windows 7 Home Premium, it features a 14” HD LCD display (1366 x 768), 2 GB of RAM, 1.3 MP webcam, 320/500 GB hard disk, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200 GPU, 4/8 cell battery along with connectivity features like Wi-Fi, HDMI etc.
Though no clear words are available on its starting price, it should be retailing at around $700. Sounds like a nice Christmas gift to me. 🙂
