MSI X460 and X460DX notebooks announced
MSI has a couple of notebooks up for the masses – and we’re looking at the X460 and X460DX models, where they are both 14″ mobile powerhouses that target professionals who are always on the go. Being part of the X Series of ultra-slim notebooks, you can be sure that both units will run on the latest Intel Core processors which are not short on processing horsepower, not to mention coming with a choice between an integrated Intel GMA HD or nVidia GeForce GT540M video card, with Microsoft Windows 7 as the operating system of choice right out of the box.
Since they say that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, MSI does not want all of the Jacks (and Jills, I suppose) end up being dull, cubicle loving drones. No sir, your ears will also be treated to the inclusion of THX TruStudio PRO so that movies and music that you watch and listen to will sound all the more realistic and thumping.
Another interesting addition to these notebooks would be the inclusion of Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) 2.0, where the X460 model will let you hook up your notebook to any TV unit over a standard Wi-Fi connection – letting you live out the wireless lifestyle with ease. There are three distinct configurations to choose from, but common hardware specifications include a couple of high speed USB 3.0 ports to help keep them future proof to a certain extent, HDMI connectivity so that you can watch Full HD movies on a big screen TV when connected, and a 1.3-megapixel webcam that ought to let you hold some decent video calls without missing a beat.
As usual, a standard 1-year warranty will accompany your purchases – with prices starting from $799.99 a pop, it does look like a rather attractive proposition, as it is a step up from the basic mobile workstation model that you get from other manufacturers.
