MSI Readies New Laptop Models for CES

We're getting close to the end of the year, and that means the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is just around the corner. This is the time when companies gather to show off their new and upcoming products, and you can bet we'll be in attendance. So will MSI, which today announced it plans to unveil a bunch of new notebooks at the show, including "the fastest gaming notebook ever." Oh really?

Really, says MSI, which claims its upcoming GT680 gaming laptop is the shiznit. MSI said its GT680 posted a score of 18,162 in PCMark Vantage, but didn't go into details on what it's packing inside. Instead, MSI kept it vague, saying the GT680 sports "Intel's latest four-core CPU, Nvidia's newest generation high end discrete graphics card, and four DDR3 memory slots expandable to 16GB of memory." We'd guess it's also packing an SSD or two, but we'll know soon enough.

MSI also plans to unveil new platforms in its F, C, U, and X series of laptops, as well as a new generation of WindPads, at least one each built around Microsoft's Windows and Google's Android operating systems.

Stay tuned, we'll have more to come!

I dont care for the orange lighting on the sides but interested in seeing the benches and the specs. I'm looking into getting a gaming laptop at tax refund time and deciding between MSI, Alienware and Asus G53/73 series.

Agreed. What is with the hideous use of LEDs all over the place. I cannot stand fans and power supplies that light up either as it makes the room too bright to sleep - at least for me.

The same thing that causes me to use a sharpie on them. I did the blue HDD and Power LED's on a case of mine and then used a pin to clean off a tiny little spot on both of them. So now, two tiny little blue lights is no problem for me, and I can still see them without problem, but they no longer drill a hole through my head at night.

I can't wait (as always) to see what the new year holds for technology, Ces is the kick off for another awesome year of better than we've ever seen hardware.
