Reviews for the MSI Megabook PR600

60% Review: MSI PR600 notebook computer
Source: vnunet.com English
The PR600 includes a carry case, two-year warranty that covers parts and labour around the world (if you’re on the UK mainland, it also offers a collect-and-return service). At £699, it’s a fairly reasonable deal - you do get a powerful workhorse computer and the battery life is good. But you’re not really getting anything spectacular for the money, and if you are partial to playing the occasional game you should look for a laptop with a dedicated graphics card. It’s extremely portable despite its size, but the PR600 isn’t up to much otherwise.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

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


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T7100: Entry level to mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.4":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.
