Reviews for the MSI X-Slim X610
Source: Digital Versus
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.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards. MSI also designs and manufactures graphics cards, barebone PCs, notebook computers, networking products, servers, multimedia, consumer electronics, and storage devices. MSI, as most Taiwanese computer manufacturers, sells products on OEM/ODM basis. It also sells products worldwide based on its own brand name "MSI". The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.
60%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
