    MSI Computer Corp, a leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, unveils their newest AMD powered gaming notebook, the GX60. Armed with state of the art components, including AMD Trinity A10 Quad Core processors, AMD Radeon HD 7970M GPU, Killer E2200 Game Networking and Steel Series Gaming Keyboard, the GX60 is the ideal choice for gamers seeking a high-performance, yet affordable unit.

    The GX60, part of MSI's award-winning G Series of gaming notebooks, delivers exceptional gaming experience through a combination of high-performance components and proprietary technology. MSI's exclusive TDE (GPU Overclocking) Cooler Boost Technology delivers one-touch performance boost while AMD's Eyefinity, a stereoscopic 3D technology, allows users to run multiple independent display outputs simultaneously.

    "MSI spared no bells and whistles in creating the GX60, packing it with cutting-edge components including the latest AMD processor," said Andy Tung, vice president of sales for MSI US. "MSI is committed to the gaming community and we believe that exceptional performance leads to unparalleled gaming experience."

    Available this week, the GX60 also comes with Blu-ray Disc reader, a 1920 x 1080 anti-reflection screen that reduces eyestrain while widening the field of view, 9 cell battery for extended mobile gaming pleasure, gold coated audio jacks (Audio Boost) for crystal clear and high fidelity sound, and more.

    looks a tad too thick. guess the thickness was necessary for the heat dissipating stuff, and the subwoofer :O

    Its a GAMING Laptop, and this is actually quite thin for one. If you want an Ultrabook, buy an Ultrabook.

    not to crazy about the keys on the keyboard... the best keyboard i've used has been on my IBM T43 Thinkpad. They're actually pretty decent for gaming and I like the feel of them better when typing, though that particular keyboard sucks for simulators since there's no numpad.

    Still, looks like a pretty decent notebook, and a decent price considering what it is.

    Nothing wrong with Killer NIC, unless you found out something which I missed. Looks plasticky, but nothing out of the ordinary among gaming laptops.

    They will probably out a 17in version like they always do. Mind you, 15in is a very good balance when it comes to portability, I speak from experience. 17in is just a tad too heavy for lan parties when you don't have a car.

    17" is to big for everything. I kind of like it I hate the huge giant piece of plastic, but I could make do.

    You will always find people looking for a 15" gaming laptop, though I would prefer 17" and up. Looks like plastic, though MSI may be looking to cut costs.
