Well, it looks like MSI isn't about to wait around for Intel to deliver those new high-end, lower-cost processors
for ultrathin laptops, as the company has just announced that it's planning to offer "high-powered" Pentium processors in its line of X-Slim
laptops. That will apparently push the Pentium-equipped models past the $1,000 mark (as opposed to the $800 the Atom-based models will demand), although MSI apparently isn't ready to get more specific than that. The company also doesn't seem to have had much to say about any other potential spec-changes, with it only divulging that the Pentium-based models would will loaded with Vista.
