The machine can support up to 12GB of DDR3 1333MHz RAM and 1TB of storage, but the amount included will vary between sub-models of the GT663. It also features a DVD/Blu-ray drive, HDMI and VGA outputs, two USB 2.0/3.0 ports, one eSATA, a single Express Card slot, a 5-in-1 card reader, as well as gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and optional Bluetooth.
The GT663 comes standard with Windows 7 Home Premium and a nine-cell battery. No battery life is mentioned, but that's probably not on the top of your checklist anyway. There's also no release date or pricing, but MSI usually ships variations of a given model shortly after its initial introduction. US availability seems like a sure bet.
