Reviews for the MSI GE60-0NC-006US
Source: Comp Reviews
The MSI GE60 laptop is designed as a more affordable and portable 15-inch gaming laptop and it does very well with this task. Its dimension are much more inline with a typical 15-inch laptop than gaming specific ones which does make it portable even though it features a large power brick. Performance is good both for gaming and general performance thanks to the quad core processor and NVIDIA graphics.

Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.3 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.3 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU running at 650-1100 MHz on a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
