MSI bows X-Slim X410 with Athlon Neo

MSI X410 now official

MSI this morning took the X-Slim line into AMD's territory by officially launching the X410. The crossover, 14-inch ultraportable uses the lower end of AMD's Congo ultrathin platform and uses both an Athlon Neo processor and the newer chipset to reportedly get twice as much battery life as a regular 14-inch notebook, although MSI is silent on actual numbers. The system uses the older Radeon X1250 for integrated graphics but claims its power is enough to decode 1080i video smoothly.

At just under an inch thick and about 3.3 pounds, the new X-Slim is still relatively well-equipped with at least a 2GB hard drive, a 320GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi and a webcam. Fully outfitted models have up to 4GB of memory and a 500GB disk, and an option exists for an external DVD or Blu-ray drive.

As is often the case with MSI launches, the initial news of the X410 doesn't include release dates or prices. Most X-Slim configurations are already available in the US; early European pricing may prove a clue as the X410 is selling for between 414 Euros and 499 Euros ($610 and $736).
