Spotted this at a very good deal on scan. It uses the CULV CPU that's not very powerful but should give a good battery life. MSI website shows product info here:

http://global.msi.eu/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=135&prod_no=1855

but scan does not which may mean its a price error although they DO HAVE STOCK!

From some googling basic spec is:

MSI X600 15.6" Ultra-Slim notebook
Intel SU2700 CPU 1.3Ghz (2MB cache)
3GB Memory
320GB HDD
ATi Mobility Radeon HD 4330 Graphics Card with 512 MB VRAM

Looks like a MacBook Pro

get ready for the processor haters!

Admittedly, this machine although being thin and light is not actually portable or going to have an amazing battery life due to that screen. Not voting either way

There is a hater of everything somewhere on this forum.. but there are also a lot of lovers too...

Will wait and see on this one, but a notebook with dedicated graphics for this price is not bad imho.

Because it's cheaper on Today Only.

Can't find it...

I was seriously considering buying one of these but after reading the reviews I’m gonna pass because:

1. It doesn’t have switchable graphics like the Acer Timeline series so the battery life is very roughly 30% worse which I can live with but it leads to a fairly hot running machine and very likely a relatively noisy one to.
2. According to a review to remove the back panel to upgrade the RAM or HDD you have to remove the Warranty Void sticker so keep that in mind.

Still I think it’s a steal if the features match your needs. The newer X620 & X420 do support switchable graphics but you won’t get one at this price. I’ve been looking at the 14” X400 with integrated graphics but the cheaper ones are Core Solo. The hunt continues.

Scan has a hell of a over-complicated and confusing web site. However, I managed to locate the Today price of 346 (£356.54 delivered) with help of Firefox find command on the Today page. You have to be a gamer to shop on this site. Doesn't appeal to me.
Do you also have to "hunt" when there is a problem? :)

The OP forgot to mention that you had to look at the Today Only page to get it at this price which is why the confusion. As soon as you know that it’s easy to find.

Sorry, I put the only link to get it at this price which means you have to scroll down the list, but it saves an extra £10. I figure the fact it says 'today only' means its not likely to be available tomorrow but will have to wait and see..

What was hard to understand about it? if you stuggled to use scans website then maybe a laptop is not for you or a desktop. It only says on the left hand side of the home page TODAY ONLY and click buy from the today only page and dont go to the product info page and buy as that will come up as full price.

I'm looking for a family laptop at the moment, this looks good.

I don't understand much about these new processors, I'm not up to date. Last year I knew about processors and things because I was building a PC (mid-high), but don't know about the lower ones / mobile ones. I know it says 1.6ghz - which people who know nothing will moan about - but does it work in a different way to traditional processors? e.g. is it one of the new mobile type ones (low power / more effective or something haha - I don't know the details).

For example does it compare / perform well in comparison to low end dual core, like a 1.73GHz?

Cheers! I hope you understand what I'm on about

2.1kg! that seems very heavy for an ultra-slim; even if it is 15". only use i can see for this notebook is to have a semi-light pc for browsing/light office work around the house, whilst still keeping a nice screen size.

saying that though, although the CPU is far more efficient, it benchmarks at less than half than the T2500 in my girlfriends 5 year old dell! (www.cpubenchmark.net) i would personally spend ~£100 more and get something with a little bit more oomph, a bit lighter, and better battery (asus UL30A? - http://www.asuslaptop.co.uk).

voted hot since i can't find a cheaper price anywhere else.

That only has a single core CPU.
The highest spec version can be found for £410 delivered from the eBay listing I quoted earlier or buy direct from the same supplier:

I'm confused, i've been looking around but really am not sure what to get. I'm not intending to play games, I'll be using it for the internet (inc iplayer) and films

What is better
This
an i3 wth no didicated graphics (@ £560)
or 1.4GHz SU9400 with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 (@ £450)

Take a look at http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html
but its safe to say dedicated graphics will always be better for gaming.

Mobility Radeon HD 4330 -> 2352
Graphics Media Accelerator HD Graphics : 3dmark06 -> 1523

i.e. the 4330 will be ~50% faster

about average price nothing special hardly a bargain see better deals.

Depends on the gaming your doing. It would run games, but not at the best resolution or frame rate. But in a laptop for that you would be talking 3 times this price for something really decent.

the integrated graphics on the core i series CPU's are notoriously rubbish (although it should be fine for streaming and watching DVD's etc). i would personally go for a dedicated GPU to take the load of the CPU, and also make the windows experience lest sluggish. from the quotes you gave, i would also rather save the £90, which i would spend on the kingston SSD posted last week (~£80 on ebuyer). overall the system would feel much more enjoyable to use
