The MSI X600, one of the challengers to the MacBook Air and Samsung X series has started shipping in the US.

Customers looking to go thin and light (just 2.49 Kg, is only .98 inches thick at its widest point.) can do so for $799.99 from Amazon.

The 15.6-inch MSI X600 notebook features the Intel ULV CPU and comes with an MSI external optical drive, allowing users to view DVDs on the X600’s HD LCD that features a 16:9 aspect ratio and 1366x768 resolution.

You'll also get 4GB of RAM, a 320GB SATA Hard Drive and the task of having to put up with Windows Vista until October.
