MSI officially intros the X-Slim X400
1.5kg with Li-Poly battery
MSI has officially unveiled the latest addition the its X-Slim series of thin and light notebooks, the X400.
The X400 features a 14-inch LED backlit 1366x768 screen, a 4-cell of 8-cell Li-Poly battery and it weighs just 1.5kg with the 4-cell unit. It's less than an inch thick, and looks a lot like previously announced 13.4-inch and 15.6-inch X-Slims.
The only thing that sets it apart from the X340, aside from the somewhat bigger footprint, is the coloured plastic inlay around the touchpad and around the edge of the chassis. As you can see, on the white version it's coloured in a cheerful, Miami Vice shade of cyan, while the black version features an orange inlay.
Threre's no surprise when it comes to hardware either. The first SKU to appear will be powered by Intel's Core 2 Solo CPUs, probably the SU3500, and there's no word on dual-core or Celeron-based versions yet.
Like the X340, the X400 will feature HDMI output, up to 500GB of storage and up to 4GB of memory. MSI claims it should hit retail in Q2, so we're probably looking at mid to late June availability. There's no word on price either, but it's safe to assume it will be close to similarly spec'd X340 series units.
We will have more on upcoming X-Slims soon, so stay tuned.
