Back in January at CES, we first caught wind of the MSI GX740 notebook computer. MSI has now announced that the MSI GX740 notebook is shipping in the US. The machine is on Amazon and Newegg.com right now for purchase at $1,399.99.
For that much scratch you get a machine with some powerful features. The rig uses an Intel Core i7 CPU and a big 17-inch screen with a resolution of 1680 x 1050. Graphics are via ATI Radeon HD5870 GPU and storage space is up to 500GB. The notebook packs in a Blu-ray drive for when the movie bug hits.
The sound system has four speakers and a subwoofer, which hopefully means it sounds better than most notebooks. Other features include WiFi, HDMI out, and optional Bluetooth. The notebook has up to 4GB of RAM.
