MSI intros slim, quad-core notebook line

The MS1 X460 line of Slim Series notebooks previously announced in July are out now. There are three models available, all of which center on 14-inch displays and incorporate Intel's second-generation Core chipsets. The X460DX-008 is a dual-core i3 model, while the X460DX-0006 is powered by a Core i5 quad-core chip, and the X460-004 is powered by a Core i7 quad-core chip. MSI claim that the quad-core editions are the lightest quad-core notebooks currently available on the market.

All models have Intel's Wi-Di wireless display tech, Bluetooth 3.0 and USB 3.0 built-in. They all weigh in at around 4.4lbs and are less than one-inch thick. The Core i3 and Core i5 models are equipped with NVIDIA Optimus graphics switching tech and include NVIDIA's GeForce GT 540M discrete GPU. The Core i7 model, probably because it will run slightly hotter, is reduced to Intel's integrated HD 3000 graphics solution.

Each of the notebooks can be ordered with a second internal hard drive, and can be specified with dual-SSD's or a combination of spinning drive for capacity and an SSD for speed.

The Core i3 MSI X460DX-008 is retailing for $800, while the Core i5 X460DX-006 is selling for $900, while MSI is asking for $1200 for the Core i7 X460-004.
