MSI trots out 20-inch Wind Top AE2070 with USB 3.0, Wind Touch 4 UI

3 May

MSI sure is keeping itself busy with all-in-ones these days. The inexpensive Wind Top AE2050 tech gadgets arrived stateside a month ago, and now the company is back with the Wind Top AE2070, a more tricked-out 20-incher.

This iteration also has a 1600 x 900 display, but steps up to USB 3.0 and can be upgraded to a 3.1GHz Core i3 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GT540M graphics. Other specs include a 500GB 7,200RPM hard drive, two three-watt speakers, a DVD burner, and a 6-in-1 memory card reader.

Software-wise, these tech gadgets run Windows 7 along with the latest version of MSI’s Wind Touch UI, which includes Facebook and Twitter buttons in the browser, a dedicated window for viewing photos and video, sticky notes, and weather and time widgets for the desktop.

No word yet on pricing or availability, though we assume it’ll be more wallet-friendly than this.

MSI releases new CX640 and CR640 notebooks

20 Apr

MSI has just announced that they will be introducing a couple of mainstream notebooks, namely the CX640 and CR640 tech gadgets that will arrive at the doorsteps of online retailers in North America. These two will come in the 15.6” form factor, where you will find specifications starting from the Intel Core i3-2310M Processor with the NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M with Optimus technology powering the CX640′s innards, although there is always the option to go for something of lesser power – Intel’s HD 3000 Graphics chipset instead in the CR640.

The silver colored CX640-071US is slated to retail from $679.99 upwards, while the black CR640-035US has been slapped with a $629.99 price tag for those who are interested, and regardless of which model you purchase, they’re enough for general school or work use, although gamers might want to look into the former model instead of the latter due to the presence of a dedicated video card.

In order to keep up with the times, MSI will also throw in 4GB of system memory and 500GB hard drives in both models. Not only that, the elegantly designed notebooks will ship with a bunch of other features such as worry free one-touch back-up and restore with MSI’s Time Stamp technology, where a single touch of the Time Stamp button will put your mind at rest where crashes, viruses, and data loss are concerned.

Integrated extra hard drive protection is also thrown into the mix by an engineering move to change the position of the C Series’ hard drive to the middle of the chassis, while keeping it surrounded by a unique housing that will do its bit in protecting your data from the occasional drop or shock.

Apart from that, both the MSI CR640 and CX640 tech gadgets will also sport Fast Boot technology, letting the unit power up approximately two times faster compared to its rivals in the market. Data transfer is also a whole lot speedier now with USB 3.0 connectivity, so make sure you have a USB 3.0 hard drive or compatible data storage device if you want to take advantage of that kind of speed.

MSI’s Fusion-powered X370 laptop gets $579 price tag, hits Amazon and Newegg

15 Apr

Our story about MSI’s X370 electronic gadgets ultraportable getting a dose of AMD Fusion ended on a cliffhanger — the company stopped short of revealing just how much the thing would cost. Well, now we have our answer: this 13.4-incher comes with a $599 price tag and is up for grabs on Newegg. (Amazon already cut the price to $579, but isn’t shipping it yet yet.)

For the money, that sub-$600 sticker includes AMD’s new Zacate E-350 APU, 4GB of RAM, integrated Radeon HD 6310 graphics, a 500GB hard drive, a 4-in-1 memory card reader, HDMI and VGA output, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, and an 8-cell battery that MSI claims can last up to ten hours.
While it earlier seemed that consumers would get their pick of hard drives and batteries, it’s available in just one configuration for now — not that you would have been tempted to downgrade to a 4-cell, anyway.
