The MSI GX660R gaming notebook is the sequel to last year’s popular GT660R. This 15-inch gaming notebook packs a fast Intel Core i7 processor, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 graphics and a 1080p screen.
The new GX660R uses a thick chassis loaded with ports, features the same speaker system from Dynaudio, and it can handle just about any game you throw at it with high detail settings and a 1080p resolution. Combine that with an average street price around $1,400 and you’ve got a good gaming laptop at a fair price.
The MSI GX660R is a solid gaming notebook with a great screen that delivers the goods but isn’t a monumental step up from slightly older gaming notebooks.
