MSI sent in their brand new laptop today and it’s not just any other laptop — it’s the MSI GT660 gaming laptop running a Core i7 processor. Go see the unboxing photos after the jump.
The laptop came in with this huge packaging. Even the battery pack too — at 7800mAh (8-cell?); and the charger looks like a heavy piece of brick.
The lid is shaped/designed to look like the hood of a car (Mazda 3 look-alike) with the logo of the MSI glowing/lighted when the laptop is powered on.
The MSI GT660 has the following specs:
16″ display screen @ 1366×768 pixels
Intel Core i7 720QM @ 1.60GHZ (4 cores, 8 threads)
NVidia GeForce GTX 285M 1GB DDR3
6GB DDR3 RAM (3 x 2GB Dual Channel)
2 x 500GB Seagate SATA (1TB total)
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
2 x USB 2.0 ports
2 x USB 3.0 ports
1 x HDMI port
1 x eSATA port
The keyboard’s got chiclet-type keys with extra numeric keypad on the right side, a large textured (honeycomb) wristpad and two huge audio speakers powered by DynaAudio.
For perspective, I’ve placed the GT660 beside my 11.6″ ULV notebook here and you can see the difference between the screen real estate of the two units.
Will be playing around with this first and do the usual benchmarks to share with you all. (Update: The suggested retail price of the MSI GT660 is Php109,995.)
