Series: The unique MSI PX60 series differs from other gaming laptops by MSI by its all metallic silver chassis. Design is elegant with emphasis on a sophisticated look. The lid features a silk texture and the clean edges are inspired by boutique fashion. There is a full-sized keyboard with white backlight and a big, slightly off-center touchpad. The hinges operate smoothly and do well to hold up the display, which comes in the form of a beautiful, anti-reflective 15.6-inch FHD panel (1920 x 1080 pixels). MSI has placed priority on color matching with up to 6 pre-sets of true color profiles for various scenarios.
Audio matches the display quality with 4 speakers by Dynaudio powered by Nahimic sound technology. The Windows 10 device comes in various configurations, of which an Intel Core i7-5700HQ processor, a maximum of 16 GB DDR3L RAM, an Nvidia GeForce GTX960M is the best. Users can also choose from various storage configurations ranging from HDD to SSD combinations. The MSI PX60 Series comes with a FHD webcam, Bluetooth 4.0, an HDMI out, two USB 3.0 ports, a USB 3.1 Type C port, a mini Display port and a card reader. Battery life on this machine is provided by a gigantic 6-cell pack that allows for great mobility.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M: Upper mid-range graphics card of the GeForce GTX 900M series.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
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.
6700HQ: Skylake-based quad-core processor for notebooks. Offers an integrated HD Graphics 530 GPU and is manufactured in 14 nm.» 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.
Usually, old laptops with 14-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
