MSI's more budget-minded offerings
may be attracting most of the attention as of late, but the company has also been known to produce the odd premium laptop, and it's just let loose its latest batch in Japan. Leading the way is the leather-wrapped 15.4-inch PX600 Prestige Collection model, which is limited to a mere 30 units and packs a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo P8600 processor, GeForce 9300M GS graphics, 4GB of RAM, and an equally stylish 4GB USB drive. A bit less limited is the 12.1-inch MSI PR201 YA! One, which is available in your choice of pink, green, or blue, and boasts some decent if unspectacular specs, including a 2GHz Core 2 Duo T4200 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a 320GB hard drive. Rounding things out is the 16-inch MSI EX620, which mixes things up with some ATI Radeon HD 3470 graphics and a Blu-ray burner, among other fairly standard specs. No word on a price for the PX600, it seems, but the PR201 and EX620 will apparently run ¥88,000 and ¥130,000, respectively, (or $900 and $1,340), so you can pretty safely bet that it'll be well above that.Read
