MSI have been releasing some very capable gaming and business systems in the last year. Today we are looking at their latest X460 machine, which is aimed at a user who demands maximum processing power. Our review machine is based around a powerful second generation Core i7 2630QM processor, which should be ideal for intensive tasks, such as 3D rendering and video encoding.
Instead of creating a monster sized laptop, roughly the size of a small car, MSI have opted for a rather diminutive chassis. The slim body houses a 14 inch gloss screen which runs at a native resolution of 1366×768.
Our review sample is supplied with a generous 500GB 7,200 rpm hard drive, THX audio support, DVD RW optical drive and Intel HD 3000 graphics.
MSI also claim that the X460 has a 8 hour+ battery life, which we will test later in the review.
At only £799.99 this seems to be a great value on paper, but is the machine worth the money?
