The other side of the base accommodates the wireless network card and 2.5" storage device.
Intel Wi-Fi Link 5100 supports 802.11 b/g/n;
HITACHI 5K500 5400rpm 320GB.

For better system performance, a high-speed SSD can be installed.
This will offer a boost to speed during start up, OS boot-up or certain software applications.
Shown here is the CORSAIR P65 SSD MLC version with a transfer rate of 220/150MB/s.

The X600 is only 2.5cm thick. This is quite unusual for the 15.6" range.

Next, we'll take a look at the performance benchmarks.
Specifications on the web show that the X600 is offered in 3 different configurations.
With the Celeron 723 1.2G 1MB single-core; the SU3400 1.4G 3M single-core; and the SU9600 1.6G 3MB dual-core.
This reviewer looked at the MSI X-SLIM X600 with Intel Core Solo CPU.
This is the SU3500 1.4GHz single core CPU with 3MB of L2 cache.

The X600 comes loaded with the Vista Home Premium OS.

If the user needs to encode files or has audio-video multimedia requirements, a dual-core CPU would be more appropriate.
The X340 previously tested used the same CPU as this X600.
However I personally felt the performance was quite good.
Although this machine had the single core processor, with 3MB of cache,
the system generally ran quite smoothly and there was no lag even when playing 1080p videos.
