MSI X-Slim X340 ultraportable hits US this month

updated 03:45 pm EDT, Tue April 21, 2009

MSi X340 arriving in April

MSI on Tuesday announced the first notebook PC using Intel's CULV platform, the X-Slim X340, will become available in the US later this month. Introduced early this month, the notebook features a 13-inch LED-backlit LCD display, weighs 2.9lbs and is just under 0.8 inches thick. The 1.4GHz Intel CULV CPU consumes just 5.5W of power, according to MSI, but performs more like a traditional notebook than a netbook. The notebook also has the option of a WiMAX mobile broadband module but doesn't include an optical drive to reach its slim profile.

Connections on the X340 include an HDMI output, two USB ports, a VGA output, Ethernet port and a card reader in addition to audio and microphone connections. Power comes from a 4-cell lithium polymer battery. MSI said it will expand its CULV offerings to notebooks with different-sized screens. US pricing for the X340 has not yet been announced.
