MSI has continued to bombard the market with multimedia notebooks, adding another machine to its F series. The FX600MX sports a 15.6-inch LED-backlit screen with a default resolution of 1366x768, which is upgradeable to 1920x1080 – something media buffs will surely appreciate. It's powered by an Intel Core i5 processor with up to 8GB of DDR3 1066MHz RAM, an Nvidia GeForce 310M GPU with 512MB of VRAM and automatic switching technology, 320GB to 640GB of mechanical storage, a DVD burner, and a 720p HD webcam.
Connectivity includes one HDMI and VGA output, two USB 2.0 ports (no USB 3.0), one eSATA, a 4-in-1 card reader (XD/MS/SD/MMC), optional Bluetooth 2.1, gigabit Ethernet, and 802.11b/g/n wireless. The package weighs about 5.3lbs (2.4kg) with a 6-cell battery (we don't see a runtime estimate) and it'll come with Windows 7 Home Premium. In its usual fashion, MSI hasn't revealed pricing and availability just yet. In the meantime, be sure to read our recently updated laptop buying guide if you're shopping for a new notebook.
