MSI intros GT640 gaming notebook with Core i7

Taiwanese PC maker MSI has recently announced a new addition to its G Series of gaming notebooks with the 15.4-inch GT640. It ships with Intel's mobile quad-core Core i7 processor, though which models aren't known. The portable represents one of MSI's first Windows 7 systems and will have relatively quick visuals through a GeForce GTS 250M for graphics. Hard drives can be had in 250GB, 320GB or 500GB capacities, but MSI only promises up to 4GB of RAM.

Draft-N Wi-Fi comes standard, as does an HDMI output, though Bluetooth is only an option. Including its standard six-cell battery, the GT640 weighs just under 6lbs. A 9-cell battery is offered as an option. For energy consumption management, the GT640 comes with MSI's ECO Engine found in its other computers, which allows users to pick from several energy presets to strike a balance between battery life and speed.

MSI has not revealed prices or ship dates for the GT640.
