MSI launched their X-Slim series notebook just 2 days back (19th May 2009) at D’Italiane Kitchen.
Apparently MSI’s official websites doesn’t have the product page for the X400 and X600, nor the Wind Top AE1900 at this point of time. (Eh c’mon la my article already 2 days behind and still the site don’t have the official product page?)
D’Italiane Kitchen – a small and cozy restaurant at Jaya33, Petaling Jaya. It’s the place for the event, I had intended to do a write-up on this restaurant for my food blog but it looks like my first visit is for an event. 😀
Mr Marco Chen (Country Manager, MSI Malaysia – left) gave a welcome note, followed by Ms Diana Huang’s (Product Manager) product briefing.
After the brief introduction, we were also treated not just with a product showcase but also a magic show, just to illustrate how light-weight the X-Slim notebooks are.
Aiyah I know you guys expecting girl photos again. No la, don’t bug me for girl photos. I give when I feel like it. K? 😛
The X320, X340, X400 and X600 retails at RM 2,699, RM 3,399, RM 2,799 and RM 3,099. The Wind Top AE1900 retails at RM 2,099.
X340 was supposedly titled “World’s Lightest and Slimmest 13-inch Notebook” measuring at 6mm at its thinnest and 19.8mm at its widest, and weighs only 1.3kg with battery pack. It’s nice that it has
16:9 LCD, HDMI output and optional WiMax module. Interesting……… but the price seems rather steep for a slim device with such features. Do keep an eye out for these notebooks next time you go walking around your usual shopping haunts, share your findings. 🙂
Oh by the way – I think the Wind Top AE1900 is really a lousy name for the device. I mean really, MSI Wind was a nice netbook and there’s the competitor product the ASUS Eee PC. Now to have the name TOP on the device looks like the people have no better idea but to follow ASUS’s Eee Top brand name. 🙁 (please be creative la.)
