GT740.jpgMSI are ready to launch two new gaming notebook models, the GT740 and GT640.

Coming in 15.4 inch widescreen for the GT640 model and 17 inch widescreen for the GT740, the machines house Core i7 quad-core processors and nVIDA GeForce GTS 250M 3D graphics cards. In angry-looking red and black casing, both notebooks will also hold a 640GB SATA HDD.

Both will also feature Eco Engine power management tools to get the most out of battery life during a long gaming session, and dedicated movie playback Cinema Pro technology for enhanced video quality.

Sound fidelity looks to be a high priority with both notebooks, unsurprising considering they are both very capable Blu-ray packing movie players. The GT740 squeezes in five SRS premium sound speakers, one of which is a sub woofer, while the cheaper GT640 opts for two discrete high definition speakers.

They’re a bit pricey at £1399 and £1349 for the GT740 and GT640 models respectively, but the notebooks appear to be cramming in a lot of gaming muscle for their size.
