The past six months in the notebook industry saw the addition of a few new players and one of them aiming to bite into this big pie is none other than Taiwan's MSI (Microstar International). Having first diversified from its core product line-up of PC components sometime back, MSI has since ventured into consumer electronics and IT peripherals. Recognizing the explosive growth of the notebook market, they have furthered their R&D in this arena well in advance, which has now resulted in formation of the new MEGABOOK series. Their foray into the notebook field is an inevitable move given that the trend of recognizing and following market development is a survival tool necessary for any company to remain competitive and relevant to the needs of consumers.
