The MSI GT660R boasts a 1.73 GHz Core i7-740QM processor, 6GB of DDR3 RAM and 1 TB storage from dual 7200rpm HDDs. Pixel pumping will be managed by an nVidia GeForce GTX285M 1GB GPU.

There is also an ExpressCard slot, 4-in-1 card reader, VGA and HDMI outputs, and LED lights around the notebook’s edges.
The GT660R has the TDE+ ( Turbo Drive Engine+ ) technology which allows to increase processor, memory and GPU performance instantly using a “Turbo” key. if the laptop has a shortcoming, it would be that its display resolution is only 1366 x 768 and that it weighs a whooping 7.7 pounds with a 9-cell battery which gives it up to 3 hours of runtime. The GT660R will come preloaded with Windows 7 Home Premium OS and is priced at $1699.99. The laptop is now available from online retailers NewEgg and Amazon
