Default MSI Launches GX620 and GX720 Gaming Notebooks

From our front-page news:
MSI's Wind sub-notebook has been doing a fantastic job of hogging the limelight of their product line-up lately, but their new gaming notebook releases might help pull some eyes away from the proposed Eee PC-killer. The GX620 and GX720 notebooks come in at 15.4" and 17" sizes, respectively, and are designed exclusively for the media-hungry gamer who's often on the go.

Each one of these new models features a beefy 320GB mobile drive, and though the brand/speeds are not listed, we can be sure it's a 5400RPM offering. The 'media' part comes in with the help of the Blu-ray drive, allowing gorgeous playback of your high-definition content. Granted, it won't be at a full 1080p (the displays are 1680x1050), but it should still look mighty sharp as it is.

On the gaming front, the notebooks each include a 9600M GT from NVIDIA. I've not had the pleasure to test out such a card, but if it's anywhere close to the desktop variant, then it's certainly a perfect fit here. The larger of the two notebooks also features an advanced audio setup, offering 4 speakers and 1 sub. Both notebooks look very sharp though, and it's good to finally see the lesser-known notebook manufacturers finally focusing on the gaming side of things. Not surprisingly, no pricing information has yet been revealed, but should be shortly.

MSI Computer, a leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, is pleased to announce the release of the new GX620/GX720 Gaming Notebook. Winner of a Best Choice Award at COMPUTEX 2008, the GX620's Blu-Ray player, MSI's VIVID Image Enhancement Technology, the NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT 3D graphics card and Dolby 7.1 digital surround sound capabilities guarantee the ultimate gaming or movie watching experience.
