The MSI P600-019US won’t wow you with groundbreaking design or win you over with cutting-edge features. In fact, this mainstream notebook wouldn’t stand out from the crowded field of 15.6-inch laptops unless you did what we did: test it. The P600 is an affordable mainstream laptop that delivers very good performance for the price, as well as long battery life. It's otherwise unremarkable, but for buyers on a budget, that may be enough.

While it doesn't have any features that mark it as a business notebook, the $650 MSI P600 is a great value for consumers and a reasonable choice for small businesses that don't require any kind of additional security or support. Companies looking for stronger security and more business features would do better with Lenovo's ThinkPad Edge series, which offers a more comfortable keyboard and touchpad. Regardless, if you want a great 15.6-inch Core i5 value, the MSI P600 is a solid choice.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.8 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
