MSI X-slim X600 – a Worthy Match for Macbooks?

msi-x-slim-x6001I must admit that, as a PC user, I’m slightly jealous of Apple Mac owners. Even though I prefer PCs and Windows over Apple hardware and software, I think the new Apple computers are beautiful. I’m sure you will agree that all MacBooks look great with their thin, sleek and light designs. With a MacBook, you don’t notice that it’s made of many parts, as with normal laptops. It’s all in one ’smooth’ piece.

Before I bought my first laptop, I did a lot of research. After I selected the required specs, I also decided it had to look good and be as light and thin as possible. Believe it or not, I found all of this in the LG LS50. It was very popular at the time in some parts of the world, and I think it still looks ok. However, 4 years later, there aren’t many good-looking laptops.

When I see today’s laptops in the shops, I just wonder how no one came close to matching Apple’s designs. It’s like all manufacturers invest in the inside of the laptop, and then just build a cheap frame for the parts. Most of them look chunky and ugly. That includes HP, Toshiba, Dell, Acer, Asus and other models. There are some nice looking laptops, but I’ve been looking for something that can compete with Macs!

That is, until I saw the MSI X-slim X600. When I saw the above picture, I immediately thought of it as a laptop-equivalent of a MacBook Pro, especially in the black color. I haven’t tested it myself, but I read some reviews of this model and according to the experts, this is a very good laptop. It has great graphics, good battery life and it’s one of the lightest and thinnest new laptops. Some of its specs and features:

  • Intel Core 2 Solo SU3500 CPU (1.4 GHz)
  • 15.6 inch HD WXGA (1366 × 768 pixel resolution)
  • 320 GB (upgradeable to 500 GB) Serial ATA hard disk drive
  • 3GB RAM (upgradable to 4GB)
  • 512MB DDR2 Video RAM
  • 4 Audio speakers
  • 1.3 Megapixels Webcam
  • 3 Years Limited Warranty (include 2 year Global warranty)

Maybe this will be my next laptop….
