60% MSI X-Slim X610
Source: Digital Versus English
After the unexpected success of the X600, MSI is back with a new version of its ultra-thin laptop, this time with an AMD CPU and running Windows 7: the MSI X-Slim X610 is here, and to mark the occasion, it's the first to include AMD's 'Vision' platform. The single-core processor at the heart of the MSI X-Slim X610 didn't win us over, and it performs far less well than the X600, while still sharing its predecessor's main faults: a poor quality display and loud fan. It's still an attractive option despite all this: there's a large screen for enjoying HD video and some relatively-undemanding video games.

MSI reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330: Lower clocked Radeon 4530 with a current consumption of 7 Watt (according to AMD). Supports DirectX 10.1 and Avivo HD for HD video acceleration.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


AMD Athlon Neo:

MV-40: Slow single core processor for small and thin laptops. A bit faster than Atom based systems but the power consumption is also higher.

2.1 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

2.1 kg:


60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
