MSI has unveiled a new addition to its VR Value line of notebooks, the greyish VR220. This 303x231x24-30mm (LxWxH), notebook features MSI's exclusive ECO Engine, support for dual-core/Celeron processors, and a 12.1-inch 1280x800 screen.
Other specs of the VR220 include Intel's GL40+ICH9M chipset paired up with a dual-core/Celeron CPU, up to 4GB of DDR2-667MHz memory, integrated Intel's GMA X4500MHD graphics, 1.3M Web cam, HD audio with 2+1 speaker/subwoofer, Gigabit LAN, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, three USB ports, card reader, one D-Sub output, optional Bluetooth, up to 320GB of HDD space and a Super-Multi optical drive.
The included ECO Engine feature brings five different modes, Gaming, Movie, Presentation, Office and Turbo Battery mode, which should bring unique power saving functions to minimize the battery power consumption.
The VR220 will be available with either 4 or 8-cell battery and weighs 1.8kg, without battery, of course. The price and the availability date are still unknown but we suspect that MSI might get this one out before Christmas.
