17ins of portable power.
MSI has added a rung above its 15.4in GX623 and GX633 laptops, with the 17in GX723. As per the smaller GX systems, this one also comes complete with a turbo button for boosting performance, or eking out just a little more battery life.
Inside the GX723 you’ll find an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, which will overclock up to 16 per cent thanks to that turbo button, up to 4GB of RAM and up to 500GB of hard drive capacity. That 17in display has a 1,680 x 1,050 pixel resolution which should be coped with amply by the nVidia GeForce GT130 graphics.
Draft-N wireless is standard and upgrade options include switching from a 6-cell to a 9-cell battery and the addition of a Blu-ray drive.
The GX723 should be available from the end of May, for around £999 should you fancy one.
