MSI has pulled the wraps off a new notebook that uses tech to help extend the battery with dual GPUs inside. The tech is the same as what NVIDIA has been offering for a while with Optimus, but goes by MSIs own name in this iteration. MSI called the graphics switching tech GPU Boost technology. The tech allows the machine to change from a power sipping internal GPU to a discrete GPU for more power when needed.

The discrete GPU in this case is the NVIDIA GeForce 310M with 512MB of RAM. The notebook also has a special MSI exclusive anti-scratch, anti-smudge raised totem seal coating. I'm not sure what that means other than the thing has a raised embossed finish on the wrist rest and lid. The notebook also has Cinema Pro technology for the best graphics for movies and video content. The screen of the machine is a 15.6-inch LED backlit 720p resolution unit.

The CPU inside the machine can be an Intel Core i3 or a Core i5 depending on options. The OS is Windows 7 Home Premium, and the rig has up to 8GB of RAM. The video output of the machine includes HDMI out and VGA out and a DVD burner is built-in. Other features include an eSATA port, USB 2.0 ports, and a memory card reader. WiFi and Bluetooth are also integrated along with a HD resolution webcam and a 6-cell battery. Pricing and availability are unknown.
