The MSI X-Slim X600 notebook computer uses Intel's latest CULV platform to deliver perfect processing performance at just one-sixth of a conventional notebook's power consumption. The built-in discrete graphics card also delivers even better display performance so slim aesthetics and discrete graphics are no longer mutually exclusive options.

The lines of the X600 were inspired by the round shape of a feather. The feather represents lightness and the styling makes the notebook impression of stiffness a thing of the past. What makes the X600 stand out is that it weighs just 2.1kg with the batteries fitted, making it possibly the lightest and thinnest 15.6" notebook in the world.



These exclusive features as well as the special glossy IMR treatment mean the X600 not only radiates a stylish minimalist allure but is also a masterpiece of craftsmanship. The X600 keyboard also incorporates MSI's proprietary curved thin film for a more ergonomic key-in experience. This has been proven through actual trials to offer users a more comfortable and stress-free experience.

An Exciting Visual Extravaganza
The discrete high-end ATI 3D graphics card in the X600 gives the display richer colors and more details to create a breathtaking ultra-realistic visual experience. The extra-large 15.6" mirror-surface LCD widescreen display expands the field of view and delivers high quality DVD video in all of its glory. Whether used for computer games or watching DVD movies, the X600 guarantees totally immersive visual effects.

The 16:9 aspect ratio display is particularly well suited to High Definition video. When equipped with the optional Blu-Ray optical drive, the 50GB of storage on Blu-Ray discs can be played at 1080p for exceptional video quality. The 2nd generation Dobly Surround Sound cinema-grade 4-speaker design of the X600 will wow you whether you are watching movies, TV or listening to music.

That's not all the X600 has to offer in terms of multimedia performance. The HDMI interface not only offers a video bandwidth of 5GB at a resolution of 1080p but also delivers the most realistic video quality without the old cable clutter. The new external E-SATA port with transfer rates of up to 3GB/s is also supported for even better performance and hot swap support. With this feature, you can store your precious photos, videos and other entertainment data on external storage devices with ease.

Even More Wireless Mobility
The optional WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) module greatly boosts the wireless broadband connectivity of the X600 to make Internet access even more accessible, speedy and mobile. Whether you are in a café, at university, in the office, at the airport or on the road, with WiMAX you are always in touch with the rest of the world and up to date!

The X600 also offers integrated 802.11 b/g/n Wi-FI wireless local area networking in addition to WiMAX. Enjoy the convenience of wireless Internet access and make mobile living a reality! Even Bluetooth support is offered so you don't need cables to connect your mobile phone, headphones or PDA. Say goodbye to cable clutter once and for all!

Ultra-Long Battery Endurance
The X600 uses the latest Lithium-Polymer battery combined with Intel's new CULV platform to deliver extreme battery endurance. When a standard 6-cell battery is used, an endurance of 4.5 hours can be achieved. High capacity 9-cell battery packs are also available to extend the endurance of your X600 even further. The X600 also comes with MSI's proprietary ECO Engine power management mode so you can choose the usage scenario you need. Five scenario modes are available. You can select between Text, Gaming, Cinema, Briefing and Turbo Battery mode for different combinations of screen brightness, screen power, auto hibernation and automatic CPU stepping options to achieve the optimal balance between performance and battery life. The improved mobility and productivity offered by the X600 will bring you an unrivalled level of convenience in your life!
*Actual battery endurance may vary depending on usage and settings.

Let's see some benchmarks of it verses the Nvidia 9400M before we say that, okay?

I'm not saying that it's better or worse than the similar offering from the competition. I just say it was labeled high end, when there is 4800 mobile series.

i was coming to say the same thing...

unless its a direct clone of the desktop card (which is rare, its always downclocked or less shaders) its not that special. Sure it may be #1 in the netbook market - but calling it "high end" is a blatant lie.

Well, now -- ATI's mobile variants are usually much closer to their desktop counterparts than Nvidia's. It's not even close -- ATI doesn't even cut the shaders, anymore.

And "high-end" is very relative with laptops. :shadedshu

ATI have 48x0 cards in laptops... no way is this high end compared to those.

(i agree on ATI cutting far less than Nv, but they often at least lower clocks and ram speed)

Thats because, the keyboard is ANOTHER SCREEN! Only with Multitouch. And it can be used to SLICE AND TOAST BREAD! (Or am I thinking of the Macbook Air on that last part?)

Other than the apparent lack of keyboard and the underpowered graphics, it looks like a pretty good laptop for high mobility! :cool:

if a 512MB mid range card gaming at 1080P makes you soil yourself, how many pairs of pants do you need to game on your desktop?

*insert joke about no keyboard here*

The 9400M is significantly faster, and even that is slow. Perhaps you were thinking of a 4830 or something.
[citation needed]

Even the benchmarks that cdawall posted right above you show the 4330 as being faster. Where did you get your results from?
