Reviews for the MSI FX600-211PL

80% MSI FX600
Source: Hardware Zone English
Unlike its more flashy cousin, the MSI GT660 series, the MSI FX600 goes for a more subtle look and feel. If you've read our initial findings on the MSI FX400, then you'll be quite familiar with the physical aspects of the FX600 which is mostly positioned as a bigger 15.6-inch basic multimedia notebook. MSI's FX600 was born to be a star notebook with a unique fashion sense.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 325M: Slower clocked GeForce GT 330M middle class card and similar to the GT 230M.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

460M: The Core i5-460M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-620M) and clocks between 2.53-2.8 GHz (Turbo Mode). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
