Several new gaming notebooks with Core i5, i7 CPUs
Confirming earlier rumors, MSI at CES unveiled several 3D notebooks, a dual-screen e-book reader concept, and new netbooks. The new G-Series gaming notebooks include the GT640, GT740, GX640 and GX740, with each model integrating discrete graphics cards. The GT-series devices feature Intel's Core i7 processors, while the GX-series notebooks are built on the Core i5 platform.
The company's new 3D notebook features a 25.6-inch LCD which supports 120Hz 3D signals. The technology is based on NVIDIA's 3D vision system, requiring users to wear special glasses when viewing 3D content.
Other CES introductions include the X-Slim X360, a new notebook based on Intel's Arrandale ULV CPUs, and the Pine Trail-equipped U135 netbook which integrates WiMAX components. A new 24-inch all-in-one, the AE2400, features a touchscreen with support for multi-touch input with Windows 7.
MSI is currently working on an e-book reader featuring dual 10-inch touchscreens. Using the virtual keyboard is said to be enhanced through "counter-force reaction" feedback. A Menlow-based netbook and wireless charging system for notebooks were also previewed at CES.
Pricing and release dates for the new products have yet to be announced.
