MSI Pumps Out Yet Another Laptop: The GE700 Gaming System

MSI, creators of the oh-so-popular Wind line of netbooks, really likes announcing new laptops as well, and now there is another child joining the rapidly expanding family of their products.  Behold: the GE700 laptop, an enhancement over the recently announced GE600 laptop.  Specs are below, and they are pretty good:

  • Intel Core i5
  • ATI Radeon HD5730 with 1 GB VRAM
  • 17.3” “HD+” LCD
  • DDR 3 RAM (2 Slot)
  • Up to two 500 GB HDD
  • Optical Drive
  • 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 2.1
  • HDMI Port
  • e-Sata Port
  • 4 USB 2.0 Ports
  • 4-in-1 card reader
  • HD (720p) Webcam
  • 6 or 9 cell Battery
  • 7 lb (3.2 kg)
  • A Subwoofer

The GE700 also has MSI’s GPU Boost technology, to enable and disable discrete graphics, and MSI’s ECO Engine Power Saving Technology. Pricing is not out yet, but don’t be surprised if this hits the market pretty soon.  It looks as if MSI plans on giving Alienware a challenge for the gaming notebook market.

MSI Classic Series Notebooks Released

MSI has come a long way.  From a little known Taiwanese brand, it has gained a foothold in the netbook market with its famed Wind line.  Now, 4 of its latest notebook models are ready for shipping.  They are dubbed the “Classic Series” and we mentioned them during our CES coverage last month. Here are the final specs on some of their siblings:

CR620-030US CR620-033US CR620-31US CR600-234US
CPU Core i3-330M Core i3-330M Core i5-430M Pentium Dual-Core T4500
RAM 4 GB 4 GB 4 GB 3 GB
HDD 320 GB 320 GB 500 GB 320 GB
LCD Size 15.6” 15.6” 15.6” 16”
LCD Resolution 1366×768 1366×768 1366×768 1366×768
GPU Arrandale IGP Arrandale IGP Arrandale IGP NVIDIA GeForce 8200M

Other standard features include 1.3 megapixel webcam, multicard reader, VGA/HDMI out, 3 USB 2.0 Ports, Ethernet, and 802.11b/g/n. Unfortunately, the 32-bit OS is a let down, seeing as the 64-bit transition is now a fact of life for all companies and most of the laptops use 4 GB of RAM.
