Can you believe that MSI released its first-ever laptop 20 years ago now? The company is celebrating 20 years of laptop history with a celebration video, which you can check out below:

MSI introduced its first laptop -- the M510C -- in 2004, packing an Intel Centrino processor and Radeon 9700/9600 Mobility graphics. It featured a 15-inch display, up to 2GB of DDR-3000 memory, an optical drive, and WiFi-G support, and weighed in at a hefty 2.9kg. MSI talked about its GX600 laptop design from 2007, noting that it was the first overclockable gaming laptop, packing NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics at the time.

Fast-forward to today, and MSI's flagship laptop is the TITAN 18 PRO Ryzen Edition, which packs a 16-core, 32-thread Zen 4-based CPU with up to an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 Laptop GPU. It is 800g heavier than MSI's first-ever laptop, but it rocks a huge 18-inch 4K 120Hz Mini-LED display and far, far more powerful internal components, oh and no optical drive, obviously.

MSI has its next-generation laptops in the oven right now, with AMD's next-gen Ryzen AI 300 series "Strix Point" APUs and Intel's upcoming Core Ultra 200V series "Lunar Lake" processors, that we'll see released in the months ahead.
