MSI to include eSATA/USB port on its notebooks

Thirteen of them

MSI is going to have a handy eSATA/USB combo connector on thirteen of its notebooks. The notebooks in question come from all three families of MSI notebooks, Gaming, Entertainment and Professional series.

The new connector is very handy, as you can plug either an eSATA or USB-based device inyo the same hole. This leaves room for manufacturers not to lose the third USB slot if they want to include the eSATA port on their notebooks. This is also handy if the manufacturer wants to include the eSATA port on smaller notebooks, again without losing any other connector.

The MSI's Gaming series GX720, GT735, GX620, GX630, GX400, Entertainment series EX720, EX620, EX630, EX300 and Professional series PR621, PX620, PX200, PR420 will all have this combo connector.

Some of the mentioned notebooks can already be found listed at Geizhals.at and the rest should follow soon.

Here are some pictures of the new port.
