MSI, who have gained great notoriety thanks to their U110 Wind (which Doug, Chris and I all use) just announced their 2009 lineup and looks quite nice. From extending the Wind Netbook U-series, to a new All-in-One lineup, to gaming machines, MSI seems to be making some significant inroads in the computing world. Here’s a peek…
MSI extends their well-received netbook, the Wind, by offering the U115 and U120.
The U115 is the first netbook capable of simultaneously running SSD and HDD. The advantage to this innovative combination is its ability to provide users with a reliability, shock-proofing, and speed. A 6-cell battery will provide 12 hours of runtime when operating in Eco mode.
The U120 weighs just under 3 pounds and is designed for portability without sacrificing performance. It features Intel® WiMAX Technology or a 3.5G Solution (optional). The U120′s stylish new case is white with black accents, giving it a sleek look that will be appealing to both business travelers and students alike.
MSI is introducing the NetOn, an all new All-In-One with display in 16″, 19″ and 22″ versions. The AE1901 model is the world’s first All-In-One to be equipped with the Intel® dual-core Atom processor, which improves operational performance and conserves energy. The AE1901′s power consumption is only 20% of that of a normal PC (250W). Its super thin appearance, wall-hung design, 16:9 HD display, touch screen and optional wireless connection will make it one of the most talked about products at CES.
MSI is extending its G-Series Gaming Notebook line to include, among other devices, the GX420. The GX420 is MSI’s first 14″ model. It features a 16:9 screen. MSI is also demonstrating GT725 and GT727, the first two models to break the 10,000 point 3Dmark barrier. At the same time, MSI will also introduce the world to its first eco-friendly Carbon-Fiber Concept Gaming Notebook.
MSI will also launch two new versions of the advanced E-series Notebooks – EX625 and EX623. These new models feature ATI Radeon HD4670 video cards, a subwoofer, Dolby Surround II capabilities, 16:9 cinema-level displays, and Blue-ray optical drives.
Doug, Chris and I are all loving our MSI Winds and I can’t wait (hopefully) to see these new offerings first-hand.
