If you’re into watching films on your laptop but don’t have the readies for a portable media powerhouse, take a look at this latest mid-range offering from MSI. Aimed at those who “demand style, functionality and power from a notebook”, the MSI FX600 packs in some pretty specs for its sub-£600 price tag.
Packing in an Intel Core i3-330M, 2.13GHz CPU and Nvidia GeForce GT 325M graphics, it’s got enough brawn to breeze through playback from the optional Blu-ray drive, with four-speaker THX TruStudio surround sound and Cinema Pro technology adding to the silver-screen effect.
However, the MSI FX600 doesn’t run at full HD, instead a resolution of just 1366 x 768 on its 15.6 inch display. You could argue that the differences between 720p and 1080p on a screen that size are negligible, but it’s worth pointing out if you opt in for the Blu-Ray drive.
Elsewhere the “jet black” notebook features 4GB of RAM, 500GB of storage, a multi-point touchpad, three USB ports, a HDMI port, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and a 1.3 megapixel camera.
The MSI FX600 is out at the end of the month, with prices starting at £599.99.
