It's another week, which means that it's time for another MSI notebook. The company's latest is a standard sized, classically styled machine, with the FX600MX offering a 15.6" form factor and plenty of power for handling most multi-media demands. There's a Core i3 or i5 processor, NVIDIA's GeForce 310M discrete graphics (512MB) and automatic graphics switching in MSI's GPU Boost control panel. Obviously, NVIDIA's Optimus is onboard.

It also features MSI's anti-scratch, anti-smudge raised totem seal coating, a chiclet keyboard and raised multipoint touchpad. It ships with up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, HDMI/VGA outputs, a 320/500GB hard drive, DVD SuperMulti drive, two USB 2.0 ports, a 4-in-1 card reader, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and Gigabit Ethernet. An HD webcam is also included, as well a 6-cell battery and twin stereo speakers.

MSI has yet to mention an official price or ship date.

The MSI FX600MX - Powerfully chic
MSI's latest raised totem seal coating enhances the MSI FX600MX's stylishness and combines with the nVidia GeForce 310M discrete graphics card to make it the ideal notebook computer in terms of both power and elegance.

Taipei—MSI has unveiled its all-new FX600MX notebook computer which features a 15.6” backlit LED screen and the Intel Core i5/i3 processor. It also packs the nVidia GeForce 310M discrete graphics card with 512MB of display memory. What’s more, when your machine is processing high-load applications, the automatic graphics switching in MSI’s GPU Boost technology kicks over to discrete graphics card mode for superior graphics processing.

MSI Marketing Director Sam Chern explains that sheathed in MSI's own anti-scratch, anti-smudge raised totem seal coating, the FX600MX is both formidable and chic. The wrist rest areas are covered with a raised checkerboard coating that is gentle on the hands when typing. Furthermore, such stylish design elements as the unique chiclet keyboard and raised multipoint touchpad combine to enhance class and texture. The FX600MX is the apex of computing—inside and out.

Instant boost
GPU Boost technology: The MSI FX600MX features the nVidia GeForce 310M discrete graphics card (512MB of display memory) for superior graphics processing capabilities and when your system needs extra processing power, the automatic graphics switching in MSI's GPU Boost technology kicks the FX600MX over to discrete graphics card mode for greater graphics processing capabilities. When performing general word processing tasks or browsing the Internet, it automatically cuts to the power-sipping integrated graphics chip mode.

Cinema Pro technology: The MSI FX600MX features powerful multimedia processing and MSI’s own Cinema Pro technology for the best possible graphics. A touch of the Cinema Pro hotkey instantly switches to film mode for higher resolution and richer colors to bring you the same great audio experience found in live performances, films, and recording studios.

Multiple HD hardware: The MSI FX600MX is equipped with a wide cinema-class 16:9 ratio LED display. Not only are colors rich and crisp, you don’t have those pesky black bars at the top and bottom or your screen when viewing HD films. And the HD720p webcam allows you to enjoy fast, smooth, bright, and high fidelity web calls with friends and family. If you want more than a high definition computer screen.

Stylishly classic
Perfect fusion of style and craftsmanship: The FX600MX laptop is proof that MSI continues to insist on the best. Its jet black cover is sheathed in non-peeling raised totem seal coating to prevent scratching and smudging. The center of the cover is graced with MSI's glowing platinum logo and the wrist rest areas with a soft raised diamond coating that not only soothes hands, but adds an extra touch of class.

Precision technology: Every detail of the MSI FX600MX was meticulously crafted by MSI's design team. The power button is encircled by chrome, setting off the cold luminescent blue lights above the keyboard beautifully. The unassuming platinum trim around the speakers and body as well as the unparalleled chiclet keyboard with its solid touch, the raised multipoint touchpad, and the brush metal finish of the hotkey zone further underscore the taste and class of this NB.

That right-shift key still looks way small to me. When are they going to get around to fixing their keyboard design?

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

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

MSI releases notebooks so much how can anyone keep up with them all. Oh and I use both shift keys because I am ambidextrous, but of course I do probably use the left one more.
