MSI's ultrathin X600 gets a dual-core

And a hefty price tag

MSI's X-Slim X600 has been around for a couple of months, and now it's about to get a bit more horsepower under the bonnet.

The first SKUs were powered by a Core 2 Solo SU3500 at 1.4GHz, but now it got a Core 2 Duo SU9600 at 1.6GHz, making it a much more serious machine. The rest of the spec didn't change much, 4GB of memory, 500GB hard drive and Radeon HD4330 discrete graphics with 512MB of memory.

You also get Bluetooth, n-draft wireless, HDMI and a LED backlit 15.6-inch 1366x768 screen. Not bad really, considering it's thinner than an average netbook and weighs as much as a cheap 12-incher, 2.1kg to be exact.

The downside of adding a serious piece of silicone in place of the SU3500 is the four digit price tag. With prices starting at €1099 it's quite pricey, and it costs a full €400 more than the SU3500-based SKU. Hopefully prices will drop to under €1000, but it still won't be a bargain. It should start appearing in retail in early September.
