Leading-edge Computing from the Lattest AMD Mobility CPU!

The latest AMD Mobility 64-bit CPU: Turion64 X2

As an expert in the dual core processor platform technology, MSI has led the industry in introducing two new models of 15.4" notebook computers featuring the AMD Turion 64 X2 architecture, the M670. The Turion 64 X2 is AMD's latest generation of highly efficient 64-bit dual core platform, which fully supports all 64-bit software applications available, including Vista, Microsoft's next generation Windows operating system. Users no longer need to worry about incompatibility between hardware vs. software.

To deliver true high performance computing power, the M670 not only use the highest performance AMD Turion 64 X2 processor and DDR II memory chips (expandable up to 2 GB), they are also equipped with 5400 RPM high speed hard disk to minimize data storage and access time. You can really feel the difference in stability and speed of the hard disk when doing graphics processing, retrieving large sized files, or burning an optical disk.

Advanced Design for Energy Efficiency and Quiet Operation

MSI's exclusive ACS (Advanced Cooling System) is a revolutionary heat dissipation technology. It enhances dissipation of heat inside the chassis by physically exchanging heat. When further coupled with ventilation holes and heat exchange conduction medium, ACS is capable of maintaining low operating temperature for extended operation. This way there is little need for the cooling fan to kick on, significantly reducing noise and conserving power at the same time. This is a desired feature for quiet user environment, such as when working late in the office, or when watching a DVD movie. The users will be better able to experience the "ultra silent" operation of MSI notebook computers.
The exclusive ACS heat dissipation technology is better than any of our competitors' equivalent. When working in conjunction with a large capacity 9-cell, long-lasting battery pack, the M670 can operate up to 4 hours long. You no longer have to carry another bulky battery or even a power cord with you when traveling away from the office, giving you less and making your trip a more enjoyable one.

DualView Dual-Screen Functionality


The M670 provides the DualView dual screen function. DualView supports video output to both the LCD screen and another externally connected display device such as projector or monitor. Two display equipments mean their refresh rates, resolution, and color quality can be adjusted separately and independently, while running separate software applications.
When running software applications, you can use one screen for PowerPoint presentation, while using another screen for Excel spreadsheet and looking up numeric data. Suddenly your work scope is no longer bound by the screen of your notebook computer, and is instead extended to the screen of a second externally connected device. This function gives you a broader perspective on your tasks, and also saves you from switching back and forth among different windows on the same screen. Working smarter means you can work less hard with greater efficiency!

Create a High-Quality, All-Around, Wireless Living Space

A mobile computing platform must possess the ability to network wirelessly. The M670 provides dual 802.11 b / g wireless networking standards. Whether you are at home, in the office, in a Café, or even traveling abroad on for business or pleasure, the M670 will get you on the Internet wirelessly every time. In addition, to create a high quality digital living space all around, the M670 also offers Bluetooth wireless transmission capability. Other mobile devices such as handset, PDA, earphones, GPS can all now get plugged into you computer wirelessly without the clutter of cables. While presenting a neater appearance, you can also enjoy more carefree travel leaving all the cables behind at home.

Independent Numeric Keypad

Notebook computers frequently have to make design compromises so as to maintain a more compact size. One such example is the numeric key pad, which is available on desktop computer keyboards but missing from notebook. Lately we are seeing more notebook computers with separate numeric key pad, but only on the larger 15.4" models. To cater to users who use accounting, financial, and banking applications, the M670 has an independent numeric key pad to the right of the keyboard. Using this key pad is intuitive and requires no extra learning process on the part of the user. The much smaller 15.4" screen M670 with its independent numeric key pad is a true rarity among all notebook computers.
