MSI has come a long way. From a little known Taiwanese brand, it has gained a foothold in the netbook market with its famed Wind line. Now, 4 of its latest notebook models are ready for shipping. They are dubbed the “Classic Series” and we mentioned them during our CES coverage last month. Here are the final specs on some of their siblings:
|CPU||Core i3-330M||Core i3-330M||Core i5-430M||Pentium Dual-Core T4500|
|RAM||4 GB||4 GB||4 GB||3 GB|
|HDD||320 GB||320 GB||500 GB||320 GB|
|GPU||Arrandale IGP||Arrandale IGP||Arrandale IGP||NVIDIA GeForce 8200M|
|Operating System||Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit||Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit||Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit||Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit|
|Optical Drive||DVD-RW||Blu-ray combo||DVD-RW||DVD-RW|
|Battery Life||3 Hours||3 Hours||3 Hours||3 Hours|
Other standard features include 1.3 megapixel webcam, multicard reader, VGA/HDMI out, 3 USB 2.0 Ports, Ethernet, and 802.11b/g/n. Unfortunately, the 32-bit OS is a let down, seeing as the 64-bit transition is now a fact of life for all companies and most of the laptops use 4 GB of RAM.
