CES roundup: when can I get that new camera?

Our heads are still spinning from all the major camera and camcorder announcements at last week's Consumer Electronics Show.

Our heads are still spinning from all the major camera and camcorder announcements at last week's Consumer Electronics Show. Despite the hubbub, you can't actually buy the majority of those just-announced products yet.

Fortunately, that gives you a bit of time to start saving up, and thanks to the list below, you'll know how much money you'll need to stow away by a certain deadline. Here are the release dates for the major cameras and camcorders we saw at this year's show, along with the pricing information announced by each company; keep in mind, both pricing and release dates are subject to change.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
