MSI offers both notebooks with a second-generation Core i7 processor (no specific chips are mentioned), 320GB, 500GB or 640GB of storage, and a "top-end" 4-channel sound system designed in unison with Dynaudio. There's also a webcam capable of recording 720p video at 30fps, which is accompanied by facial recognition software, HDMI and VGA outputs, two USB 3.0 ports, one USB 2.0 port, a 5-in-1 card reader, as well as Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n, and Bluetooth v2.1+EDR.
Other features include shortcuts to eject a DVD, turn off the display and more. MSI preloads the systems with Windows 7 Home Premium as well as the company's Easy Viewer photo manager and Easy Face biometric software, which remembers credentials for MSN as well as other websites and systems, allowing you to login by placing your mug in front of the webcam. The press release doesn't give any hint on what you can expect for battery life, nor does it mention pricing or availability.
