MSI to show new laptops next month at 2011 CeBIT expo
The Taiwan-based electronics company MSI is gearing up for a huge showing next month for CeBIT, the worldwide computer expo held every year in Germany. BenchmarkReviews is reporting more than 20 new MSI laptops throughout five different laptop lines will be shown. A spokesperson for MSI confirms the five lines as the G Series, F Series, C Series, X Series and the U Series. Each of these laptops is expected to run the latest processors from either Intel or AMD, depending on the series.
Exact specifications for the new laptops are not yet known, but the upcoming high performance and gaming laptops of the G and F Series will include Intel’s newest 2nd generation i7 processor and discrete graphics from Nvidia’s GeForce 500 architecture as well as enhanced speakers for better sound and audio.
For the C Series, a few of the new laptops will sport AMD Fusion E-350 processors with Radeon HD 6310 graphics. Battery life will likely be getting a boost from the power efficient Fusion APU.
Finally for the X and U Series, the newcomers are expected to be extra thin-and-light at under 1-inch thick and less than 1.4Kg, depending on the model. These two series will make use of either the Intel Atom N455 processor or AMD Fusion APU for increased options.
More detailed information about each new MSI model will have to wait until CeBIT, which will begin on the first of March until the 5th. Until then, pricing and release dates can only be speculated.
