Micro-Star International recently released a new ultracompact notebook that aims to rival Apple’s MacBook Air. While technically a notebook, the X-Slim 340 is meant for consumers who want a netbook with a slightly larger screen and a better processor.
This netbook comes with a 13-inch screen, an ultra-low-power Intel Core 2 Solo processor, and runs on Windows Vista Home. It is 6-millimeters at its thinnest point and 20-mllimeters at its thickest. The X-Slim 340 can come with either a 4-cell battery (which lasts for roughly 7 hours) or an 8-cell battery.
MSI has also released the Wind U100 Plus, an update to the company’s current line of netbooks. It comes with an Intel N280 microprocessor with 1.66GHz and 667MHz bus and a 160 GB hard drive. The netbook has a 10-inch screen with 600×1024 resolution and runs on Microsoft Windows XP Home. It comes pre-installed with other additional features, such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
