If you have been looking to buy a new gaming laptop you may want to check out MSI’s upcoming offering, this is the MSI GX640 and it features an Intel Core i5 processor, ths is not only great for performance, but also very good for battery life.

The GX640’s display is a 15.4-inch LCD screen sporting a 1680×1050 resolution, as mentioned above it runs a Core i5 processor, this is combined with 4 GB of DDR3 memory, an ATI Radeon HD5850 graphics card with 1 GB DDR5 and a 500GB hard drive, this gives the laptop a great backbone for gaming.

As is the case with most computers/laptops these days the system runs Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, other things worth mentioning are its 9-cell battery, Bluetooth connectivity and full DirectX 11 graphics support. Due to it being a gaming laptop MSI have aslo pronounced the commonly used W,S,A,D keys.

A definite release date is not yet known, however it should arrive later this month for $1,099.99 (Amazon), I think this price seems extremely reasonable, what do you think?

    The laptop is alright cause it'll do pretty much all the gaming you want it to. The keyboard placement is annoying though cause they make everything small that should be big. The backspace, enter, spacebar and right shift are all made smaller in order to incorporate the full right side number pad. Totally unnecessary seeing how we use the backspace and enter keys much MUCH more. Even with an ugly 9 cell battery that sticks out the back the battery life is about 2 hours when running on acceptable brightness. As well, there is no reason to evacuate hot air out the right side of the laptop when any other placement (except maybe the front) would have been more comfortable for the user. To sum up. Wonderful performance for a laptop but msi makes so many mistakes that can be fixed if they cared.
