Reviews for the MSI GX660R-i5647LW7P
MSI create a good first impression of the GX660R by using a stylish retail box and inside we find the system suspended in cardboard with a protective bag around it. Upon removing this bag we find that the finish of the laptop, even down to the space between each key, is protected by layers of plastic which we peel off and there is a cloth sitting on the keyboard to protect the screen during transit.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870:
High-end DirectX 11 graphics card based on a desktop HD5770. Models with GDDR5 are ideal but there may be a bottleneck due to the 128 Bit memory bus.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these 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.
