A six-cell battery powers the CX623, though MSI doesn't mention a lifespan in its press release. I/O includes HDMI and D-sub output, two USB 2.0 ports (one eSATA combo), Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth v2.1, as well as headphone and mic jacks. The system is also home to a 1.3-megapixel webcam and a chiclet keyboard.
No operating system was mentioned in the announcement but you can expect Windows 7 – presumably Home Premium x64 – to be preloaded. MSI will also ship the CX623 with several power profiles and "GPU Boost" technology, which switches between discrete and integrated graphics based on load. Pricing and availability is unknown.
