MSI GX640 Features Intel Core i5 for All PC Gamers Out There

We love our gaming laptops, no doubt about that. It doesn't help when companies make them look good, either. Like, for example, this latest gaming set up from MSI Computer Corp., which features quite a few goodies that will make any PC gamer out there want to take a second look. Who can turn down a brushed aluminum case and fire engine red accents? Exactly.

The MSI GX640 is a 15.4-inch LCD screen with 1680×1050 resolution notebook completely centered on PC gaming. It features Intel's new Core i5 processor, which can improve the battery life of the notebook by up to 15%. The notebook also promotes Intel's Turbo Boost technology, designed to increase the overall performance of the machine up to 30%, making sure that your titles run as smoothly as possible. Also inside you'll find 4 GB of DDR3 memory, a 500GB hard drive at 7200 rpm, a 9-cell battery, Bluetooth connectivity and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

Additionally, there's an ATI Radeon HD5850 graphics card with 1 GB DDR5. And the GPU inside the GX640 rocks DirectX 11 graphics support, which means that as time progresses and new games come out, your new new notebook will be able to show them off. The keyboard is of the raised chiclet variety, which should make i t easier for you to type on. (Not that you'll be typing all that much, right?) MSI also made the W, S, A, and D keys a bit more pronounced with clear markings, so that you can find those often used keys faster. You can order it right now from Amazon for $1,099.99, and it will also be made available from Newegg later this month, if you feel like you can wait. Full press release below.
