Over the last few years, MSI has become a much bigger part of the notebook landscape here in America. This is largely due to the company's very successful netbook line that debuted years ago. MSI is announcing a new notebook today called the CX623 that is aimed at fans of multimedia.
The new notebook has a 15.6-inch screen and sports a powerful NVIDIA GeForce 310M graphics card with 1GB of DDR3 VRAM. The outside of the machine has the MSI color film print coating with a crosshatch design that offers style. The keyboard is the chicklet design popular on many machines today.
The heart of the machine is an Intel Core i5 CPU that promises to sip power giving the machine 15% longer battery life than previous notebook generations. MSI also uses its ECO mode to boost battery life. Other features include a pair of memory slots for DDR3 RAM, up to 500GB of storage, and a memory card reader. Power comes from a 6-cell battery and the machine has HDMI and VGA out. The notebook measures 247.5 x 374 x 35mm and weighs less than 2.5KG.
