Default MSI at CES 2011

At its pre-CES press conference, MSI touted its huge line-up of P67 motherboards that support Intel's brand-new Sandy Bridge processors, and it also tackled its notebook line-up that looks to cover every budget and need. Of course, we were also filled in on what MSI believes sets itself apart, so read on to see what we saw at the conference.

Read our initial coverage of MSI at CES and then discuss it here!

Hey Rob, if you see Ziya Tong from Daily Planet, give her a pat on the butt for me.

No reason. Just do it.

Haha, yes, she's cute. Probably won't see her though, since there are like a billion other people here!

I agree on that board, though I'd have no use for it. I'd rather the next step down which is a little more sensible in the slots regard. 8 slots has limited usage (Folders, namely, or workstations).

You wouldn't say no to 4x GPUs and 4x PCIe SSDs... like from Fusion IO...

Actually, I would say no if I was given the bill after...
