With the start of CES 2009 just days away, we can expect a flurry of new product announcements to flood the internet. As DailyTech reported earlier today, notebooks and netbooks are expected to take most of the limelight this year in Las Vegas.
MSI's Wind was one of the first 10.1" netbooks to hit the market and is available in a number of variants from a standard model with a 160GB HDD to the recently introduced Wind U115 which features both SSD and HDD storage in one machine. MSI is now looking to steal a bit of thunder from Apple's MacBook Air and Lenovo's ThinkPad X300/X301 with its new X-Slim 320.
The notebook features a 13.4" widescreen display (1366x768), is just 0.71 inches thick, and weighs 2.87 pounds in its base configuration. MSI says that the X320 will be available with both 4-cell and 8-cell batteries with the latter providing up to 10 hours of running time.
According to Engadget, the machine supports 2GB of DDR2 memory, three USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, 802.11n, Bluetooth, 3.5G WWAN, a VGA port, and a card reader. CNET's Crave is even going so far as to say that the X320 could be sporting NVIDIA's Ion platform which pairs Intel's Atom processor with the GeForce 9400M mobile GPU instead of Intel's less than GMA 950 solution.
