Reviews for the MSI Megabook GX610

70% MSI GX610-008UK laptop PC
Source: PC Advisor English
The MSI GX610-008UK is a rare example of an AMD-powered laptop in an Intel world. The MSI GX610-008UK's asking price of £679 is pretty low, so if you're a gamer on a budget then it may just suffice, but in most other areas its performance is adequate rather than exemplary. The keyboard is also very cramped to use and it would be much better if the space dedicated to the numeric keypad was redistributed to the main keyboard.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2600: This is a DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI and direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS graphic card for laptops and performs in games much better than the Nvidia card.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
