Thin is in, playa, and everywhere you turn someone's touting an ultra-slim notebook. That includes MSI, which just announced its new X370 laptop with a super thin profile and long 10-hour battery life. This thing measures a scant 324 (W) x 227 (D) x 22.8 (H) millimeters, or for those of you who shake an angry fist at the metric system, that's roughly 12.76 x 8.94 x 0.89 inches. With battery, the X370 weighs just 1.4kg (3.08 pounds).

Not bad for a Windows-based, 13.4-inch notebook that dances the line between a netbook and a full-sized notebook. Powering the X370 is AMD's dual-core E350 processor (1.6GHz, 1MB cache) along with:
  • Single DDR3 slot
  • 320GB/500GB/640GB hard drive
  • AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics
  • Two USB 2.0 ports
  • Media card reader
  • SRS PC sound
  • 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Gluetooth v2.1 + EDR, Gigabit LAN
  • 1.3MB webcam
  • 4-cell battery
Despite a lowly 4-cell battery, MSI claims up to 10 hours of run time. How so? For starters, the AMD E350 chip sips just 18W of power. Add to that MSI's ECO Engine power management system, which lets users select from up to five power management levels -- Video Game, Film, Presentation, Word Processing, and Turbo Battery -- and together MSI says the X370 will stay up and running for a very long time.

Other features include a mult-touch touchpad, chiclet keyboard, and MSI's exclusive EasyFace 2.0 face identification software.

No word yet on price or availability.

These MSI X laptops have been going for a while and from everything I have heard are solid. I have heard some mumbles about key placement a few times, but they were not critical keys anyway. As far as run time and performance goes for an ultra light they have been and still seem to be pretty top notch for a great price.

Gluetooth?

Like 802.11 b/g, we now have the next generation of Bluetooth - Gluetooth. Next in line is the Nluetooth or Nutooth...

Happy April's Fools Day :D

Would like to see how it compares against the Intel models.
