MSI GT660 Gaming Laptop Unboxed

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.

Yugatech 728x90 Reno7 Series

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.)

    There are certainly loads of particulars like that to take into consideration. That is a great level to deliver up. I provide the ideas above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions like the one you convey up the place a very powerful thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged round issues like that, however I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the affect of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.

    mas maganda specs and performance pero mas gusto ko style and design nito, sa asus nmn ung heating or cooling solution ang maganda sana ma review mo rin ung asus na g73jw.

    I’d rather go for the Asus G51 or maybe the upcoming G53!
    Full HD over 768 any day. I really wonder, all that gaming power (i7 and the powerful 285 vidcard) but that small of a resolution? hmm..at 110k it’s not exactly a bargain. :| Just my 2 cents!! Although it’s nice looking and well spec-ed on the inside!

    Hi peeps! I’m also a bit disappointed at the 1366 resolution, but I put this aside due to the fact na *gaming* laptop sya, I’ll take higher fps over more desktop real estate anytime for a gaming machine. Less pixels = more speed from the *GTX285*. I’ll type that again mga friends GTX285 – in a laptop. *pause*
    I called up a friend of mine who works for the local distributor and got some other juicy tidbits: the memory system has 3 slots (triple channel), and there are two hard drives – 2 x 500GB in RAID. Oh yeah, sir yuga, I think the 109k SRP is for the version with a Blu Ray Writer, also accdng to my friend – not a plain dvd writer. please do check ^_^

    PS: anong tsikot un? pabili din!
