MSI GX600 gaming laptop
Micro-Star has announced a new gaming laptop, the GX600. Unlike the existing GX610, which is AMD-based, the 600 will run on an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, with an added MSI function: by engaging the Turbo button, the speed of the system can be raised by approximately 20 percent. Alternately, the button can be used to start Power-Saving mode, increasing battery life by 15 percent.
The 600 should be more powerful in general, as its maximum RAM limit has expanded from 2 to 4GB, and the video card is a 512MB GeForce 8600M GT rather than a 256MB Mobility Radeon HD 2600. The 15.4-inch screen retains resolutions up to 1680x1050. No pricing or release schedules have been published. [via DigiTimes]
