MSI is rolling out the MEGABOOK MS-1058, one of the first ultraportables that utilizes AMD’s Turion 64 X2 Dual Core CPU (2.0GHz). It weighs just over four pounds, has a 12.1-inch widescreen display, and up to 2GB of memory. It utilizes ATI’s Radeon Xpress 200M chipset, and looks like it has a choice of ATI graphics options, either the Xpress 200M or X300SE.
