Just a few weeks after announcing the GE600 laptop, MSI has another gaming notebook to debut: the slightly-larger GE700.

The Intel Core i5-powered GE700 is a "gaming and entertainment" machine, featuring two cinema-class speakers, a subwoofer and it supports DirectX 11 for 3D graphics.

Some of the real entertaining power comes from the inclusion of a Cinema Pro technology (produces richer colors and a higher resolution) plus ATI Radeon HD5730 discrete graphics card with 1GB DDR3 display memory.

Users will be able to drag a lot of media files along with them wherever they go, as this MSI notebook supports up to two 2.5-inch SATA hard drives at 500GB a piece. (Other storage options include 250 and 320GB.) But it won't be easy to carry this laptop around often as it weighs 7.05 pounds.

Here's what else is packed in the MSI GE700 laptop:

  • 17.3-inch HD TFT LCD screen
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • HM55 chipset
  • 802.11 a/b/g/draft n Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth V2.1 + EDR
  • 4-in-1 card reader (XD/SD/MMC/Memory Stick)
  • HD Webcam
  • 6- or 9-cell battery

Neither a price nor a release date has been announced yet.
