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.
