MSI FX600 Notebook Revealed, Entertainment Juggernaut in Attractive Shell

MSI is getting ready to unleash a bevy of “fashionable” notebooks onto the world, and they’ve decided to start it all off with their FX600. The new line-up of notebooks is ready to set up a nice lineage of F-Series of notebooks. They will be built around Intel’s Core i3/i5 processors, and they meant not so much for the portability of a notebook, but the entertainment value while they’re sitting on your desk.

The FX600 features a 15.6-inch display, and MSI says that it’s all set up within a “durable” frame, which features a jet-black sheen. The base model will feature Intel’s Core i5 330M processor, which reached a clocked speed of 2.13GHz. It will also come with a 500GB SATA hard drive, 4GB of DDR3 memory, 1GB of onboard RAM, and a GeForce GT 325M graphics card.

Above the display, you’ll find a 1.3MP HD webcam, and it comes with a DVD burner, too. (But, you can upgrade to a Blu-ray reader, too.) It will feature WiFi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth, a 4-in-1 card reader, 3 USB ports, HDMI port, 4 speakers with THX TrueStudio PC sound, eSATA/USB combo port. And finally, it will also have Windows 7 Home Premium, in the 64-bit variety. Also worth mentioning, is MSI’s CinemaPro Technology, which is designed specifically to bring you the best in visual and audio quality while you’re watching movies. Together with the speakers, that should mean you’ll be totally engrossed in any film you’re watching on that large 15-inch display.

It may be officially announced, but MSI isn’t coming forward on when it will ship out to customers, or how much it will cost. But, considering the features therein, we can imagine that it’ll have a price tag worth remembering.
