officially confirmed it's planning to launch a 14-inch X-Slim
series notebook, but has stopped short of revealing any details or
Dubbed X-Slim X400, it will fill the gap between the X340 and X600, and
MSI says it will appear "in the near future". We are guessing
summertime, probably shortly after the 15.6-inch X600 hits the shelves.
Other vendors are launching similar models in Q2, and Acer's 14-inch
Timeline should appear in late May. Also, MSI is reportedly working on
a 11.6-inch X-Slim as well, and as it's the only model not to be
announced yet, it will probably appear a bit later.
Acer should be first on the market with 14-inch and 15-inch models, and
according to the first listings, its Timeline series products will be
slightly cheaper than MSI's. However, MSI's X-Slim designs are much
more compact, and almost 1cm thinner than Acer's Timelines.
