The trend with gaming notebooks lately seems to be small yet powerful, and MSI continues it with their ultra-thin GE600. The 5.9 pound gaming notebook features a 16-inch, 1366×768 resolution screen, Core i5 CPU and a ATI Radeon 5730 GPU with DirectX 11 support, all running on Windows 7 Home Premium. Other specs include a 320GB SATA HDD, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 6-cell battery, 802.11n WiFi, 1.3MP camera, HDMI, Bluetooth, 3 USB 2.0 ports. This thing looks like a great balance between power and portability. Meet them in the middle, they say…the middle of ass-kicking.
The GE600 is available now for $899.99.
