MSI Introduces "Supersized" 17.3-Inch Notebook with Discrete Graphics

Paul Lilly

We're not so sure a 17.3-inch chassis qualifies as a "supersized" notebook, but if that's how MSI wants to describe its new CX705MX, then so be it.

MSI won't get any argument from us over the ATI Radeon HD 545V discrete graphics solution shoved inside. This should give the mostly entry-level notebook enough muscle to push HD videos on the 1600x900 resolution panel, which is accompanied by a pair of 2W speakers and a subwoofer.

Other hardware consists of an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 250GB/320GB/500GB hard drive, 4-in-1 memory card reader, HDMI output, three USB ports, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, 1.3MP webcam, and Windows 7 Home Premium. The CX705MX also incorporates MSI's ECO Engine Power saving technology, which lets user choose from one of five power management levels, including video game, film, presentation, word processing, and turbo.
