Reviews for the MSI GE60-0ND-257US
Source: Computer Shopper
Still, it's hard to spend $1,249 only to be told you'll need to learn to live with dialed-down resolution and detail settings in your favorite games. The GE60 is a capable system that will save you a good deal of money, but if gaming performance is more important to you than productivity benchmarks, we think you'll want to check out the AMD-based MSI GX60 for only $50 more.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M:
High-end graphics solution as part of the 600M series and the slowest enthusiast GTX model.
With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). 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.
3630QM: An Ivy Bridge-based quad-core processor clocked at 2.4 GHz with Turbo Boost support up to 3.4 GHz. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 4000 GPU and a dual channel DDR3 memory controller.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
