MSI Fusion X370 shows up in retail/e-tail

Written by Slobodan Simic

Brazos equipped X-Slim
We already wrote about MSI's X370 Fusion equipped slim ultra-thin back at Cebit and we certainly said that we'll keep an eye out for this one. Today, MSI's X370 has finally showed its face in both European and the USA retail/e-tail for €599 and US $599.99.

In case you missed the X370, we are talking about a 22.8mm thin 13.4-inch ultra-thin notebook that is a part of MSI's X Series. It has a LED-backlit 1366x768 13.4-inch screen and is based on AMD's Brazos platform featuring 1.6GHz clocked E-350 APU with Radeon HD 6310 graphics, 4GB of memory and 500GB HDD. Other specs include Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1, card reader, 1.3M webcam, 2x2W SRS speakers and D-Sub and HDMI outputs.

The best part of this ultra-thin is the 8-cell battery that is enough for up to 10 hrs of battery life and it also comes with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit OS. The price honestly sounds a bit steep, but ultra-thin casing, LED-backlit screen and a large battery might be very appealing to certain buyers.

The X370 is currently in stock at Newegg.com in the US for US $599.99. Unfortunately, Europe pulled the shortest straw again as the X370 can be found listed for €599 at one German based retail/e-tail shop. If you convert the US price it ends up at somewhere around €415, which sounds much better so you might want to hold on until other European retail/e-tail shops finally get it.

This is a very fine example of the Fusion platform being used the way it should.

A missed spec is that it weighs only 3.11 pounds, or 1.41KG. This is amazing considering it packs an 8 cell battery.

The price is actually very fair for what you get, and offers nice competition against the Intel ULV based notebooks.

LOL, I want one too! I think I'll wait a quarter or two for the 28nM Brazos to hit market though: either it will have better battery life or higher clocks. 8)

Indeed! Fusion is AMD's jackpot. PURE GOLD I TELL YOU! :lol:

I will get downrated for this :sigh:

Although the X370 is nice, it's way too expensive considering the comparatively weak performance of the E-350 APU.

For less money than the $600 they ask for it, one can get a nice 14-inch Dell Inspiron 14R with Core i3 2310M CPU.

The E-350 belongs in sub $300 netbooks, not in $600 laptops.

With worse graphics and worse battery life. For this low power, cpu isnt much of an issue.

For any heavy task even a dual core 2310 will be slow.
