We first heard about MSI's GE600 gaming notebook at CES earlier this year, and at long last, MSI has begun shipping the 16-inch laptop to the North American market.
Not much has changed since our sneak peek several months ago, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The GE600 sports a respectable spec sheet consisting of an Intel Core i5 420M processor (2.26GHz), 4GB of DDR3 memory, 320GB hard drive, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 videocard with DX11 support, a DVD burner, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, 4-in-1 memory card reader, 1.3MP webcam, 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
MSI's new notebook also features a scratch resistant chassis, illuminated touch sensitive hotkeys, a raised chiclet keyboard, wide touchpad, and a glossy exterior we imagine will act as a fingerprint magnet.
MSI today unveiled its GE600 notebook geared towards gamers. The 16-inch portable PC was first shown at CES earlier this year and includes an Intel Core i5 processor.
For graphics duties, the GE600 comes decked out with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 graphics with 1GB of dedicated RAM. But the new notebook is also notable for the inclusion of a 720p HD webcam.
Customers will be able to choose between a 250GB, 320GB, or 500GB hard drive. Other specs include 7.1-channel audio output, touch-sensitive hotkeys, MSI's GPU Boost overclocking technology, Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi, HDMI video output, three USB 2.0 ports, eSATA, Windows 7 Home Premium, and an optional 9-cell battery (6-cell comes standard).
