MSI has being showing us its svelte side ever since CES and today they’ve come good on one of those sexy show models in the shape the of MSI X340.
It weighs a netbook threatening 1.3kg and runs between 6mm – 19.8mm thick. Unlike its Windier cousins though, the X340 is armed with a proper Intel Core 2 1.4GHz processor, 2GB of DDR2 RAM and a 320GB HDD for all your storage needs. What’s more, there’s a 13.4″ LED screen and a proper keyboard.
There’s no mistakes in the connectivity department with b/g/n compatible wireless and Bluetooth 2.0, although 3G might have been nice. It comes off the shelf with a 4-cell battery and DVD drive but I’d say upgrading to a 6er and Blu-ray would probably be a good choice. You have got built-in speakers and an HD screen after all.
The X340 can be yours for £859 from June. Not cheap but X-rated slim models never are.
