Review Of The MSI X600 Laptop

It comes equipped with a 1.3 megapixel webcam which offers a decent image quality even when the light is not that bright. The images are not grainy and also there is hardly any display of noise except for at the edges. Coming to the video quality I guess this is probably the last one I would want to go to when I want to watch a video. The video streaming quality is poor and filled with lots of noise. The speakers are also not worth the talk, I barely understand why the ones which are in built in this one are even called as speakers because I literally had to take my ears near the notebook to actually understand what is being played. This one comes along with Intel’s Ultra-Low Voltage processor which for all I know has been invented only to save on the space and some power. So I did not like really except much as far as the speed is concerned but even then this one left me hugely disappointed. Putting it through the PCMark Vantage test this one got a terribly low score of 1,850 when the category average is atleast 3,138. Also it took almost 1 minute and 10 seconds to boot Windows Vista which is quite less. However, it could perform routine tasks like web browsing, document processing etc. with a decent speed.

Coming to the battery this one lasted for around 4 hours and 11 minutes even after continous browsing using Wi-Fi. Though this one is quite average but still the company promises to come up with a 9-cell battery in the near future as an added accessory. Also though this one has a ultra-low voltage processor it is hardly any efficient than any of the other notebooks. I could barely see any power being saved considering the fact that it took almost 3 hours and 13 mins to get totally recharged. I must say that this is quite ‘hot’ a notebook, quite literally actually. This one gets heated up pretty soon especially the touchpad though it wont set your fingers or your lap ablaze or anything of that sort, this one definitely is not a pleasant experience atleast as far as the heat is concerned.


Well you could go for this one if your looking forward to splurge on something which is sleek, neat and lightweight and doesn’t have much to offer in terms of efficiency. Go ahead pick it up if all that matters to you is the portability.
