MSI Core i7 GT660R Now Available in the US

MSI’s new version of the GT660, the GT660R, is now available in the United States. The GT660R contains an Intel Core i7 processor among other impressive specs.

The MSI GT660R features a 1.73GHz Intel Core i7-740QM processor, 6GB of RAM, 1TB HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285M graphics card, and a Blu-Ray combo drive all shoved into a roomy 16-inch laptop. It also includes two theater-grade speakers as well as a subwoofer in MSI’s Dynaudio-developed sound system.

Despite the amount of power, MSI saw it fitting to put in a 16-inch display that has a resolution of only 1366×768, which is far from ideal for a high-definition gaming laptop of that size. Also, being a desktop replacement laptop, it sports a desktop-like heft, weighing in at 7.7 pounds. Additionally a reviewer on Newegg noted that the power brick is one of the largest they’ve ever seen and doesn’t pack away well in a typical laptop bag.

So, if the low resolution and weight don’t scare you off, you can order a MSI GT660R today for $1699.99. After all, it does light up.
