MSI: Calpella CULV notebooks to stay in same price class

Posted on Thursday, Aug 27 2009 @ 04:01 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
MSI revealed it plans to offer CULV notebooks with Intel's new Calpella platform at the same price point of current CULV notebooks, which cost around $600 to $900.
Why do we care? MSI tells us the price of these seriously slim notebooks will stay in the same ballpark (around $600 to $900), but the chips provide better performance than the Celerons that they were formerly using.

What this all really means is that not only is MSI hitting the market with a crap load of notebooks that have brand spankin' new chips and a fresh Microsoft OS, but the other notebook vendors (yes, Apple) will most likely do the same. You may just want to wait to snatch up a new PC; the notebooks are a coming this fall.
