MSI boasts notebook with new Intel chipset
Intel hasn't launched its new Santa Rosa mobile platform yet, but MSI has already unveiled an ultra-portable notebook that features an unannounced Intel chipset. The machine, which MSI dubbed PR200, packs a so-called Intel 965GM chipset with integrated GMA X3000 graphics—the very same integrated graphics processor found in Intel's desktop G965 core logic.
Chipset aside, the MSI PR200 weighs in at just 3.96lbs and includes a 12.1" 1280x800 wide-screen display, a Core 2 Duo processor, 802.11g Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 4-in-1 card reader, and an integrated 1.3 megapixel camera. If this notebook is indeed a Santa Rosa model, the included Core 2 Duo chip should have an 800MHz front-side bus, 133MHz speedier than that of current mobile Core 2 Duos. However, MSI hasn't revealed any other details—like a launch date or price—regarding the notebook. Thanks to Engadget for the tip.
