Reviews for the MSI X-Slim X610

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.

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.

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

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.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.1 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
