Quadrophony. The new all-rounder series is technologically on the cutting edge with an i5 CPU and should also cope with games. A real novelty is the sound system with four loudspeakers. The structural finish puts scratches and fingerprints into the past.
MSI FX600 Lightweight Multimedia Notebook
Source: Tom's Guide English
The FX600 is a well-balanced notebook at a reasonable price. It will work well for general productivity and/or school work at home, in the office, or on the go, but don't expect to spend extended amounts of time away from a plug. It's also well suited for heavier computing tasks with its powerful Core i5 processor and respectable GT325M. Things like 3D modeling, photo editing, and video editing shouldn't be a problem, assuming you can look past the mediocre display. As powerful as it is, it's not quite enough to make a solid gaming machine, but it is capable of playing modern games on reduced settings.

MSI's FX600 possesses good speed and is a reasonable model to consider if you want a gaming laptop. It also looks good and is comfortable to use -- its touchpad is among the best we've used. However, it only has 2GB of RAM and NVIDIA's Optimus dual graphics card technology doesn't always automatically pick the best graphics card for the job.

The screen is 15.6in, glossy and has a native resolution of 1366x768. As is the case with many 15.6in laptops we've seen, the MSI FX600 has very narrow vertical angles that can be a nuisance when viewing photos and videos. Reflections in the screen will also be a annoying. Overall though, the MSI FX600 is a great little unit. We love its touchpad, it's well built and relatively light at just under 2.5kg and you can use it on your lap without it feeling awkward or getting too hot as long as you are using the Intel graphics. We think it's a good unit to go for if you want a comfortable laptop that's got a good amount of CPU and graphics grunt under the hood. However, we do wish that there was a switch so that we could more easily dictate graphics card usage.

For those who need serious horsepower but want to forgo the flashing lights and polarizing designs of most gaming notebooks, the MSI FX600 offers a compelling compromise.
The FX600 is an attractive and powerful mainstream notebook that has the multimedia chops to serve just about any user looking to be entertained.

A host of affordable multimedia laptops  have entered the market this year. The 15.6-inch MSI FX600 is the latest to try to win a spot in our hearts, packing an Intel Core i3-330M processor and 4GB of RAM. At around £600, can it succeed. Beneath the 15.6-inch MSI FX600's unassuming exterior lies a surprisingly powerful and affordable multimedia laptop.

MSI's Turbo Drive Engine allows you to overclock the processor for a short period of time at the touch of a button. We found when we did this performance increased by just under 4%, which is impressive and will be useful to those who need that little extra power every now and then gamers or video editors, for example. Ultimately there's a lot going for the FX600. If MSI can sort out the spongy keyboard and chassis design, it just may be on to a winner.

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.

450M: Should be similar to the Core i5-520M but without AES functions.» 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.

2.487 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.
