MSI C Series Notebook Computers Hit US
 
 

MSI has announced that its latest new notebook computers have landed on the US market. The new machines are both in the C Series family of notebooks the model numbers in the new series are the CX640 and the CR640. These new machines both have the new Intel Core processors inside and lots more.

Both of the notebooks have 15.6-inch screens and use the same Intel Core i3-2310M processor. The difference in the two models is that the CX640-071US sells for $679.99 and it uses NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M with Optimus technology to change between that NVIDIA GPU and the integrated graphics. The $629.99 CR640 only has Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics.

Both of the machines are aimed at the mainstream notebook user needing an all around machine for all sorts of needs. They both have 4GB of RAM and 500GB of storage. Both of the machines feature MSI Time Stamp technology that makes a system image of your machine with the touch of a button in case of a crash.

The machines also have extra protection around the HDD, which is one of the most likely pieces to break if you drop the machine. They also both use Fast Boot technology to help the unit power up two times faster than normal notebooks. Another common feature is USB 3.0 ports and automatic screen backlight adjustment.

“We listen very carefully to our customers, and we know that anticipating and addressing their needs is critical to success in the PC industry,” noted Andy Tung, vice president of sales for MSI US. “The CX640 and CR640 models deliver the standard elements people look for in a PC – performance, price, features and design – however, we also go a step further. These units incorporate features that respond to people’s real-life concerns: data backup, hard drive protection, etc. And we believe consumers will respond to this consideration.”

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
