MSI Mobile Core i7 Confirmed for Windows 7-based Notebooks

MSI Mobile Core i7 Confirmed for Windows 7-based Notebooks

With the release of Windows 7 coming up pretty quickly here, we're just like everyone else in hoping that while the Operating System is getting upgraded, the machines running them don't get left in the dust. Thankfully, that doesn't seem to be the case, at least not with MSI, as they move forward and confirm the introduction of the Mobile Core i7. It's not groundbreaking or anything (is there much that is, anymore?), but at least we get something new to look forward in the architecture point of view.

Fujitsu-Siemens ESPRIMO Q5030 Centrino 2 Mini-PC

Fujitsu-Siemens have taken the wraps off of their own mini desktop PC, the ESPRIMO Q5030.  Unlike the ASUS Eee Box, which has an energy-efficient but relatively low-powered Atom CPU, the Q5030 offers Intel's latest Centrino 2 chipset together with up to 4GB of RAM, a 250GB 5,400rpm hard-drive and slot-loading DVD drive.  What's most impressive, though, is the fact that even running a 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo P8400 processor the Q5030 still merely sips electricity.
