MSI PR210 YA Edition
MSI this morning released its PR210 YA Edition notebook as a new option for those who want an ultraportable without the associated costs and a drop in features. The 12-inch, 4-pound notebook now gets the choice of blue, green, and pink outer shells to customize their looks while also providing improved components beyond the surface. A stock system includes a 1.7GHZ Athlon 64 X2 Mobile with AMD's most recent ATI Radeon X1270 integrated graphics, adding both hardware acceleration for Vista Home Premium's graphics and HDMI output for HD video output. A 1.3-megapixel webcam and a fingerprint reader also separate MSI's system from its immediate rivals.
The standard system also ships with 1GB of memory, a 120GB hard disk, a DVD burner, and wireless through 802.11g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. MSI declines to list a price for the updated PR210 but says the notebook should be available through resellers soon.
