MSI Computer Corp. announced the availability of their newest gaming laptop, the GE600. Officially MSI announced GE600 for the first time, even before CeBIT 2010, along with the GT660 model. The 16-inch gaming laptop has an Intel Core i5 processor and dedicated Ati Mobility Radeon HD 5000 series graphics that supports the latest DirectX 11 games and 3D graphics.
MSI GE600’s new Core i5 processor improves battery life by as much as 15% over the previous generation while the Intel’s Turbo Boost technology will increase overall performance by up to 30% depending on the applications being run.
MSI GE600 gaming laptop comes with a new design, has a glossy black durable scratch resistant chassis on the outside and the interior is sand accented. The laptop has a raised chiclet keyboard with wider touchpad to increase accuracy and making typing more comfortable.
Above the keyboard we can find a set of illuminated touch sensitive hotkeys, very useful and easy to use, and there’s one speaker on each side. At the bottom, there are a series of ventilation slots for better cooling and a subwoofer protected by a metallic grill. The sound is certified as SRS Premium Sound with cinema-class high-fidelity.
Andy Tung, Vice President of Sales, MSI North America said the following about the GE600:
“The new GE600 is a powerful mobile gaming station that delivers everything a gamer needs to emerge from battle victorious in a lightweight affordable package.”
