MSI claims its new FX700 and FR700 won't tolerate such nonsense with their anti-smudge and anti-scratch raised totem seal coating technology. Sounds fancy, and should we get one in to play with, we'll let you know if it works."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/lpt/auto/1287287462.usr20447.jpg" style="border: 0px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>Not to be outdone by other manufacturers, MSI has announced two new laptops.&nbsp; While much of their configuration does not stand apart from the competition, an anti-smudge, anti-scratch coating may be of interest.&nbsp; While I appreciate the effort, I am unsure as to whether it is enough to sway the wallets of buyers.&nbsp; I imagine a choice in glossy versus matte screens would make more of a difference as those who are about smudges and scratches already care for their notebooks like babies.</p>
