MSI is looking to make a fashion statement with its aptly named "F Series" of notebooks, starting with the FX600. Built around Intel's Core i3/i5 platform, the FX600 combines a fair amount of beauty and brawn, all wrapped in a 15.6-inch form factor with a "durable jet black" finish.

In baseline form, the FX600 sports an Intel Core i3 330M processor clocked at 2.13GHz, 4GB of DDR3 memory, 500GB SATA hard drive, GeForcet GT 325M graphics with 1GB of onboard RAM, 1.3MP HD webcam, DVD burner (optional Blu-ray reader), 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, 4-in-1 card reader, 3 USB ports, eSATA/USB combo port, HDMI, 4 speakers with "theater grade" THX TruStudio PC sound, and of course Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.



No word yet on how much the FX600 will cost or when it will ship.

800 range? where did you see that?

I agree, It's a nice Lappy.

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
