MSI GT627 Notebook

MSI this afternoon expanded on its CES news by detailing its new mid-size G-series notebook. The GT627 has a typical 15.4-inch display size but carries a GeForce 9800M GS with 1GB of memory to give it video performance more characteristic of desktop replacement notebooks. It also draws on MSI's now-familiar Turbo Drive to overclock the Core 2 Duo chip when on AC power and comes in an aluminum body that weighs just over 6 pounds.

The portable is given higher end specifications in other areas and comes with a Blu-ray combo drive with a 1680x1050 display resolution to match; a 320GB, 7,200RPM hard drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi and a 2-megapixel webcam are also part of the standard model. MSI doesn't provide the clock speed or memory count and typically leaves pricing to stores.
