Clearly designed with gamers in mind, the MSI GX600 laptop comes with all the prerequisite doo-hickeys to power your computing needs, but it’s got one additional feature that truly makes it special: the Turbo button. With a single press of this big round key, you effectively overclock the CPU by about 20%.
Without the turbo, the Intel processor was doing 2195.7MHz with a bus speed and rated FSB of 199.6MHz and 798.4MHz, respectively. With the turbo, this got bumped up to a core speed of 2642.0MHz, with a bus speed and rated FSB of 240.2MHz and 960.7MHz. No need to go through messy menus and custom configurations. Just press that button and it’s like you got hit by a big shot of nitrous oxide.
Keeping with the gaming theme, the WASD keys are highlighted, there’s Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology, an NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics card (512MB), 15.4-inch ACV widescreen display, 1.3 megapixel webcam, independent numpad, and E-SATA support. I can’t imagine that the MSI GX600 will be cheap, so be prepared to fork over a pretty penny.
