MSI Launches GX640 Gaming Notebook, "Evil Geniuses" Approve

Paul Lilly

We care about a notebook endorsed by professional gaming team "Evil Geniuses" about as much as we give a hoot about seeing Fatal1ty's stamp of approval on a computer peripheral, but for what it's worth, they seem to like MSI's new GX640 gaming notebook.

Maybe you will as well, if you're considering a modest gaming rig housed in a 15.4-inch WXGA+ chassis. Pop the hood of the GX640 and you'll find an Intel Core i5 430M processor, ATI Radeon HD 5850 GPU with a 1GB frame buffer, 4GB of DDR3, 500GB hard drive spinning at 7200 RPM, 802.11a/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 2MP webcam, 4-in-1 card reader, HDMI, DVD burner, and a handful of other nuggets.

The GX640 sports a brushed aluminum chassis in "fire engine red accents." As is becoming standard these days, there's a raised chiclet keyboard, and in a nod towards gamers, the W A S and D keys come marked.

This one is available now from Amazon for $1,100.
