According to MSI, the X350 is able to achieve a 9-hour battery run time thanks to the Eco modes. Additional information and specifications are available below.

The MSI X-Slim X350
New-generation Laptops with Outstandingly Good Looks

MSI's new-generation X350 notebook uses the Intel CULV (Consumer Ultra-Low Voltage) energy-saving platform, with a high-performance Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The chassis features MSI's unique diamond-motif etching technology, used to create an eye-catching, glittering lozenge pattern on the casing surface; the X350 is an outstanding example of the successful integration of high technology and high fashion!

[Taipei] Embodying MSI's first-class R&D and manufacturing technology and the company's commitment to fashionable design, MSI's X-Slim series of ultra-slim notebook PCs represents a further refinement of laptop aesthetics. The new-generation, 13.4-inch diamond-effect X-Slim X350 ultra-slim notebook PC takes the ultra-slim laptop into the luxury goods class!

The X350 features the ultra-slim design and beautiful lines that are the hallmark of the X-Slim series, creating a sense of warmth and a fashionable urban vibe. The X350 weight just 1.5 kg, and is less than one inch thick; this laptop has none of the cold, off-putting bulk of traditional notebook PCs. MSI Notebook Marketing Director Sam Chern notes that the new-generation X350 features MSI's unique, hi-fashion diamond-motif etching treatment, which integrates a lozenge-pattern with diamond carving technology to ensure that each individual lozenges glitters and shines, giving the X-Slim X350 that extra touch of luxury and refinement!

A finely-honed design that constitutes a masterly integration of high technology and high fashion

The apogee of hi-tech luxury goods: MSI's X-Slim series notebook PCs have been repeatedly refined and improved. To the solid, robust magnesium alloy structure and warm, soft supporting materials MSI has added a glittering, shiny effect created through the use of Color-Film Print (CFP) technology, giving the casing a high-fashion feel to complement its beautiful lines. The X350 weighs just 1.5 kg, and is less than one inch thick, making it the ultimate in ultra-slim luxury notebook PCs.

MSI's unique lozenge-pattern etching technique: The new-generation X350 has once again taken the integration of high technology and high fashion to new heights. Building on the X-Slim series' already stunningly beautiful chassis design, MSI has applied the company's unique, hi-fashion lozenge-motif etching technology to the top casing and the section of the chassis on which the user's hands rest while using the keyboard. The lozenge-shape pattern creates a sparkling, glittering crystal-diamond effect. The chassis is rimmed by a silver frame, complementing the lustrous, silvery, chromium-plated power switch, LED indicator light unit and touch-screen rim. All of this, together with MSI’s unique Chiclet keyboard, combines to create a trend-setting paradigm of warm, streamlined elegance and refinement.

A highly efficient dual-core processor and 9-hour battery run-time*

The latest Intel Core 2 Duo dual-core processor: The X-Slim X350 is just as impressive on the inside as it is good-looking on the outside. The X350 is equipped with the Intel CULV energy-saving platform, and uses the latest Intel Core 2 Duo dual-core CPU. It combines low power consumption and low heat output with long battery run-time. With its powerful processing capability, the X350 is able to perform a large number of tasks simultaneously while maintaining smooth operation, enabling the user to work more efficiently.

9-hour battery run time: The X350 uses MSI's new ultra-thin, large-capacity lithium-polymer battery, which inserts flush with the base of the laptop, maintaining the X350's smooth lines. The X350 also features MSI's unique ECO energy-saving technology. Press the ECO key, and you can choose between five different power management modes: gaming, viewing video content, preparing presentations, performing word-processing tasks, and "Turbo Battery". Depending on what you want to use the laptop for, it will automatically adjust the screen brightness, CPU performance, sleep time, etc. Thanks to this feature, the X350 has an impressive 9-hour battery run time. With the X350, busy mobile professionals can keep using their laptop all day without needing to carry heavy, awkward power cables around with them

*Actual battery run-time will vary depending on laptop usage and settings.

Rofl; I was replying to the spammer who had the intial post in here telling him all the horrible things I was going to do to him for publishing his trash on my favorite forum. When I posted the reply (it stated at the end that it was just humor at the expense of a spam troll), and the page refreshed his post was gone so I guess you or someone else caught it right after he did it and deleted it. So when the post refresh finished and I came back his post was gone (dang you guys r fast). I tried to hit edit and delete the whole reply as it made no sense without his spammogram (about shoes tshirts purses jewelry etc). So I finally just put whoops and posted it and it took.
