MSI GX60 Gaming Laptop Review (A10-4600M/HD7970M)

Rating: 8.0.

Today we are looking at the latest gaming laptop from MSI, which features the new AMD A10-4600M Trinity APU, 8GB of DDR3 memory, Steelseries keyboard, 750GB hard drive and 2GB Radeon HD7970M graphics card. At less than a grand, is this the new gaming laptop you should be shortlisting for an end of year present?

It has been a while since we had the opportunity to look at an AMD powered laptop so today we will compare against a range of Intel machines that we have tested in recent months. On paper it seems like a very good price, but can it perform well enough to take on heavy duty, full time gaming duties?

To make the deal even sweeter if you get in quickly, Overclockers in the UK are selling this machine at £899.95 inc vat, for a week only.
