MSI GX600 in US

MSI today officially brought out the GX600, its mid-size gaming portable. The system is the only 15.4-inch notebook of its kind to include a one-button hardware overclock option, according to the company. Pressing the conspicuous Turbo button increases the clock speed of the Core 2 Duo inside from 2.0GHz to 2.4GHz when the system is on AC power, providing a free short term boost to performance for gaming. It also cuts boot times for Windows Vista Home Premium from a full minute to 40 seconds, MSI claims. The design highlights the WASD key layout used for many first-person shooters and comes with metal and optional flame accents to reflect its gaming focus at a network gaming session.

Both a more conventional-looking Performance Edition and the more ornate Extreme Edition are said to come fully ready for games with a 512MB GeForce 8600M GT for graphics, 2GB of memory, and 802.11n Wi-Fi for a lower-latency wireless connection. A 250GB hard disk provides enough storage for games while HDMI out makes the notebook useful for playing games or movies on an HDTV. MSI has not said when the GX600 ships, but currently lists the Extreme Edition on its site for $1,499.
