City of Industry,
Calif. - MSI Computer said Wednesday
that it is now shipping two slim 64-Bit Windows 7 notebook PCs.

Both laptops offer
Intel Core processors, integrated Intel GMA HD or an Nvidia GeForce GT540M
video card, and THX TruStudio Pro sound.

Both the X460 and
X460DX notebooks also feature 14-inch LCD screens, measure 13.35 by 9.43 by 1
inches, and weigh 4.3 pounds.

The models are
available in three configurations with suggested retails starting $800. All
ship with a one-year manufacturer's limited warranty.

MSI retail
partners, including Newegg and Amazon, are currently taking orders, the company
said.

"The X460 and
X460DX takes our current X series to another level, shrinking the power and
performance of a larger notebook into a mobile unit with exceptional battery
life," stated Andy Tung, MSI U.S. sales VP. "Crafted with the mobile
professional in mind, these units feature a sleek design that reflects MSI's
pursuit for innovation and style."

Both models
incorporate DVD Super-multi optical disc drives and THX TruStudio Pro audio
technology, which is designed to replicate the sound of live performances,
films and recording studios from the small enclosure.

The model X460 includes
an Intel i7-2630QM processor (2-2.9GHz), 64-bit Windows 7 Professional OS,
Intel HD3000 integrated graphics processing, a 750GB (7200 rpm) HDD and 6GB DDR
RAM. It also features Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) 2.0 that enables users to
easily connect their laptops to any television unit using standard Wi-Fi.

"The MSI X460
model featuring the latest Intel Core processors and Wireless Display
technology effectively addresses the needs of the mobile professional, giving
them superior performance and easy connectivity," said Joe Van de Water, Intel
product marketing manager.

The X460DX version
substitutes an Intel i5-2410M (2.3-2.9GHz) or i3-2310M (2.1HGz) core processor,
64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium OS, Nvidia GeForce GT540M 1G GDDR3 video card,
500GB (7200 rpm) HDD and 6GB or 4GB DDR3 RAM.

All configurations
include two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI connectivity, WiDi2 support and a 1.3-megapixel
integrated webcam.
