MSI GT740 gaming notebook gets Windows 7, Core i7

MSI on Monday said it will soon follow up its first quad-core Core i7 powered notebook, the 15.4-inch GT640, with the larger 17-inch GT740 gaming notebook. Like the smaller PC, this new one will also ship with Windows 7. Another shared feature is the NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M 3D graphics chipset, which should give it added performance beyond just the faster Intel processor.

The GT740 weighs just over 7lbs. The GT740 has five SRS-capable speakers, including a subwoofer. There is also an output for 7.1-channel surround sound systems. An HDMI output lets users play video at native resolution on a home theater HDTV, while an eSATA port provides faster external storage. A Blu-ray drive is standard fare; hard drive capacities range from 250GB to 500GB.

Other specs include as much as 4GB of RAM, a 4-in-1 memory card reader, a 2-megapixel camera and Wi-Fi.

Pricing and a release date are still unannounced.
