MSI is releasing two computer devices: Wind U100 PLUS Netbook and MSI X340 Ultra slim laptop by end of this month.

Wind U100 is totally known in them market and it was among the best selling netbooks last year. Wind U100 Plus is coming to give more choices to the consumers. Wind U100 PLUS adds two new stylish colors to Wind U100 line: Rose Champagne and Metallic Blue. Wind U100 Plus also is powered with New Atom N280 with clock speed of 1.66GHz. Already I have mentioned the comparison between Atom N270 and N280 that you read it here.( also you can read about

Dual-core Atom 330 vs. Single-core Atom N270 vs. VIA C7).

The netbook features up to 7 hours of battery life, 10” LED backlight display, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi, integrated flash card reader, 1.3MP webcam, and Bluetooth 2.1 and weight of only 1kg.

MSI X-Slim X340 Ultra laptop will be the first laptop powering with Latest Intel Core 2 Solo Processor (CULV) in the market. This laptop like the previous one is coming out in USA by the end of this month.

Intel’s CULV CPU consumes very low power (about 5.5W of power used by 1.4GHz Intel CULV CPU) but, delivers performance closer to tradition notebooks.

The 13-inch X340 slim laptop stands next to Mac Mac Air, Envy 133, Samsung X360, and Dell Adamo etc ultra slim laptops. MSI claims that it is world’s lightest and slimmest 13-inch notebooks!

The laptop is only 6 mm at its thinnest, 20 mm at its widest, and the entire notebook is only weights 1.3 kilograms added with the battery! After seeing the pictures of X340, it seems that the laptop’s design is following the typical design of other MSI laptops and doesn’t look different. Comparing to other ultra slim laptops releasing by other companies, I feel that X340 looks ordinary although it is very thin and light!

The other highlighted features of X340 ultra include:

- Advanced Power Saving Technology

- WiMAX Wireless Module (optional)

- 802.11b / g / n Wireless Lan with Bluetooth (optional)

- 13-inch LCD (why not LED!) display with 16:9 Theater Ratio

- 2 USB2.0 Ports and HDMI output and Card Reader

- 2.5" 250GB/320GB/500GB SATA

Despite Economic recession, Laptop makers try to produce expensive stylish ultra slim laptops for corporate users! Surely they will never expect to sell a number of units from this category but it seems that making laptops like this has become part of the prestige of the company to demonstrate the ultimate skills of their designers.
