MSI Unveils GP60 Gaming Series Notebook

MSI rolled out its GP60 Gaming Series mid-range gaming notebook. It features the same styling as the rest of the Gaming Series, black with a dash of red. Its 15.6-inch screen comes in two variants, 1366 x 768 and 1920 x 1080 (options). A gaming-grade keyboard by SteelSeries decks up the bottom-half. On the left-hand side you'll find gold-plated headset jacks, with an audio device tuned for gaming headsets, and a pair of USB 3.0 ports; next to an air-vent. On the right-hand side, you get the gigabit Ethernet jack, D-Sub (VGA) and HDMI 1.4a connectors, next to a tray-loading optical drive, which can be either Blu-ray + DVDRW combo, or simply DVDRW. An SDIO slot supports SDXC cards.

Under the hood, the GP60 runs a 4th Generation Intel Core "Haswell" processor (options), up to 16 GB of DDR3-1600 MHz memory, and NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M graphics with 2 GB of DDR3 memory. MSI is deploying a hybrid drive, which combines 24 GB of NAND flash, with 1 TB of magnetic storage. Connectivity includes gigabit Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n WLAN, and Bluetooth 4.0. A 6-cell 4,400 mAh battery powers the notebook. Measuring 383 x 249.5 x 32.3~37.6 mm, it tips the scales at around 2.4 kg. Prices vary by configuration.

"GeForce GT 740M graphics with 2 GB of DDR3" - and they call it a gaming laptop? Must be some kind of joke.

It's for people who don't know about the performance of AMD APUs vs. Intel's.

only problem with your argument, the 740m is about 20-25% more powerful than the best amd a10, the 5750m. and the core processor will blow the amd chip out of the water in terms of performance. only area amd wins is maximum load power consumption.
