More MSI Notebooks

For the absolute ultimate movie enjoyment, MSI offers the MEGABOOK M715 with a large 17-inch screen based on the Intel 915PM chipset. Also equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce Go 6600 graphics, this Centrino notebook weighs only 2.9kg – lightweight if compared to other 17-inch notebooks. This latest Sonoma notebook aims to have a lightweight price tag too, likely below US$2,000.

The MEGABOOK M715 is no doubt huge, to the point that it can fit a full sized keyboard. Look closer and you’ll see that the keyboard comes with a numeric keypad. This notebook will make an ideal desktop replacement, no doubt.

The remote controller for the M715 is a tiny device that occupies the PCMCIA slot. It's used to control the proprietary media center software found in the instant-on OS partition.

The petite 1.8kg MEGABOOK S250 is based on SiS’ latest 661MX integrated graphics chipset supporting Intel's Pentium M and Celeron M processors. The S250 is meant to be a budget lightweight portable notebook with a 12.1-inch WXGA screen and built-in features like FireWire, 802.11b/g and a 3-in-1 card reader (MMC/SD/MS).

The MEGABOOK S260 is the Centrino equivalent of the S250 which is based on Intel’s latest Sonoma platform. It uses the integrated graphics Intel 915GM chipset and depending on requirements, it will come with either Celeron M (330/340/350) or Pentium M (725/735) processors.

The MEGABOOK S270 is the lightweight equivalent of the S250 and S260. It uses the latest ATI RS480M chipset and it will support the AMD Mobile Athlon 64 processor.
