MSI ships 16" GT660R gaming notebook

By on
MSI has begun shipping its new 16-inch high-end gaming notebook, the GT660R, which is currently available online in at least one sub-model. Priced at $1,700, the GT660R-004 offers a 1366x768 display resolution, an Intel Core i7-740QM (1.73GHz base frequency and up to 2.93GHz with Turbo Boost), a 1GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 285M GPU, 6GB of DDR3 RAM spread across three slots, dual 500GB 7200RPM HDDs, and a Blu-ray drive.


MSI spiced things up by adding two USB 3.0 ports alongside the expected USB 2.0, VGA, HDMI, eSATA, and wired/wireless network connectivity. The GT660R is also home to a 4-in-1 card reader, a 720p HD webcam, and a 9-cell battery provides a maximum lifetime of three hours, but don't count on that if you're gaming. The 7.7lb machine ships with the 64-bit version of Windows 7 Home Premium as well as a two-year warranty.
