Labels: , , , , , , , , , ,

Sony looks like they'll be expanding their Bravia HDTV lineup. Starting with the W-Series which includes the 52, 46 and 40-inch models. These will have "easy access to Amazon Video on Demand, YouTube, Sony Pictures content, etc." These TVs are Internet-connected and will have Sony's MotionFlow 120Hz technology to get rid of blurriness. The W-Series HDTVs all have an Ethernet jack and will have "Yahoo!-powered widgets engine." It will also come with 4 HDMI inputs. No word on the pricing, but it should be available later this Spring.

Ahh, the MSI GT725 17-inch gaming laptop. Specifically, the first laptop sporting ATI's 512MB Radeon HD4850 GPU. It also comes with: a WUXGA display, which is anti-glare, a 320GB SATA hard drive, a Blu-ray optical drive, up to 4GB of RAM, a whopping 9-cell battery and an integrated 2MP webcam. "There's also an ExpressCard slot, four standard speakers plus a 'subwoofer' and a Turbo Drive Engine to make overclocking a lesson in simplicity." The laptop ways weighs 7 pounds and is claiming to be MSI's new "flagship" laptop. Engadget points out that this is understandable when you re-read that awesome spec sheet. No word on price or availability, but i can confirm it's sexiness.

iGoogle, Google's start page that rarely anyone uses, got a new feature. Sidebar chat. It is extremely similar to Gmail's chat feature. I don't really know who uses iGoogle, but i used to use it. But after i found Google Reader, i didn't really think i had any uses for it anymore. I can tell you that my Google Latitude is finally working today. =). You can all stalk me now.

Hmm, a bit more MSI news today. They will be releasing 3 new limited edition laptops in Japan. The PX600, PR201, EX620. Let's start things out with the PX600 Prestige Collection. First off, it does not have a price and they will only produce 30 units of this, so if you really want it, it probably already ran out. It has a 15.4-inch screen, a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo P8600 processor, GeForce 9300M GS graphics, 4GB of RAM, and "an equally stylish 4GB USB drive." Up next is the PR201. It will have a 12.1-inch screen, different colours (pink, green, blue), 2GHz Core 2 Duo T4200 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 320GB HDD. The MSI PR201 will go for ¥88,000 ($900 USD). Last, but not least, is the EX620. It will have the ATI Radeon HD3470 graphics card. It will be accompanied with a Blu-ray burner and "among other fairly standard specs." The MSI EX620 will be going for ¥130,000 ($1,340 USD).
