MSI's recently unveiled X370 notebook is now available for order and, depending on which vendor you go through, will ship right away. The X370 is a budget-conscious ultraportable priced at $599 and built around AMD's dual-core E-350 Accelerated Processing Unit (APU) platform. It's a sexy looking notebook, at least in the pictures we've seen, and at 3.1 pounds, you won't throw your back out lugging it around.
"We designed the X370 for those who want a fully functioning notebook in a compact form, with long battery life," noted Andy Tung, vice president of sales for MSI U.S.
MSI claims the the X370 will keep chugging along for up to 10 hours. Other notable features include a 13.4-inch widescreen display, AMD Radeon HD 6310 discrete class graphics, 4GB of DDR3 memory, 500GB hard drive, SRS Premium Sound speakers, HDMI, 1.3MP webcam, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
Newegg has the X370 stocked and ready to ship, or if you don't mind waiting 1-4 weeks, Amazon is selling it slightly cheaper at $580.
