The X-Slim X360 will be using low-voltage Intel Core i5-520UM Arrandale CPUs which helps give the X360 a reported 9 hours of battery life (likely on the 8-cell extended battery, but this needs to be confirmed -Ed.).
The screen is 13.3″ at 1366×768 using Intel’s HD Graphics integrated with the CPU, and there is HDMI output. The X-Slim X360 weighs 3 lbs. and is less than 1″ thick.

“Taipei–The X360, the latest step in the evolution of MSI’s beautiful X-Slim series of notebooks, comes with the Intel Arrandale ULV processor to provide outstanding performance with a longer-lasting, more environmentally friendly battery. The X360 comes with the Intel Core i5 processor with Intel Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading technology. The Intel HM55 chipset gives the X360 high-quality audio/video performance and 9 hours of ultra-long battery life.
MSI Notebook Marketing Director Sam Chern points out that the X360 features the standard ultra-thin body and feather pattern lines common with the rest of the X-Slim series. Weighing only 1.4kg and less than 1-inch thick, the X360 boasts MSI’s own chic rhombic pattern and Color Film Print. The brilliant blending of the X360’s rhombic and diamond designs underscore the X-Slim X360’s distinctive style.”
