MSI has announced the FX600 entertainment notebook, which it said combines power, style and affordability into one portable package.
The FX600 tops MSI new range of F-Series notebooks, and the company described it in a statement as possessing style and functionality, beauty and brains, while also being chic and durable.
While we can’t confirm any of this just yet, it does at least look good in the images.
Spec wise, it’s powered by a choice of Intel Core i3 or i5 processors and backed with a healthy 4GB of RAM. The 15.6in screen has a middling 1,366 x 768 resolution, so it’s more aimed movies and entertainment rather than intense business use.
Sure enough, the FX600 boasts a ‘Cinema Pro’ mode, which MSI said delivers richer on-screen colours when pressed. MSI has even tapped up THX for approval of its TruStudio PC sound, and with four speakers on board, it should sound better than most portables and thanks to a Blu-ray drive option it will also make for a decent entertainment machine.
Gamers should also take note of its nVidia GeForce GT 325M discrete graphics. While this is only average in terms of performance it is at least partnered with DDR3 memory for a bit more bite. Wireless-N connectivity, a 4-in-1 card reader, 3 USB ports an e-SATA and an HDMI port are all welcome as is the 1.3-megapixel web cam. A six cell battery is included, but we wouldn’t expect lengthy hours away from the socket from this 2.5Kg machine.
The FX600 costs £649 for the Blu-ray version, and as befits a machine of such style and power you can pick it up now from Argos.
