MSI to show 3D laptop and dual e-reader, netbook at CES

MSI will also display a wireless battery charger for laptops

Micro-Star International (MSI) plans to show off a netbook with dual 10-inch touchscreen displays, one meant for computing and the other for reading e-books, at the International Consumer Electronics Show this week in Las Vegas.

Users type on the concept device via a virtual keyboard on one of the touchscreens, MSI said. The device uses an Intel Atom microprocessor (Menlow) and Microsoft Windows 7, as well as a SSD (solid state drive) for storage.

Netbook pioneer Asustek Computer showed off a similar design at the CEBIT electronics show in Germany last March. The two touchscreen prototype was created to show how screens could be used in portable devices. Asustek said a dual e-reader, notebook was one possibility, and that the two screens could also be used together for widescreen movies or other shows.

MSI will also display a 3D laptop with a 15.6-inch 3D high-definition screen that runs on Nvidia 3D Vision chips and technology. Nvidia 3D glasses are required for the visual effect. A company representative declined to provide further details.

The Taiwanese gadget maker has also readied a wireless laptop battery charger for CES. Set the laptop on a wireless battery charging pad and it will automatically recharge the battery, MSI said.

The three new MSI devices are all concepts and not yet products, according to MSI. CES runs from Jan. 7 through Jan. 10.

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 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.
