The FX600 comes with a 15.6-inch LCD LED backlit display with 1366x768 resolution, along with a built-in high definition webcam. It comes with four built-in speakers with THX TruStudio PC.
The standard version is powered by an Intel Core i3 processor, but an upgrade to an i5 is also available. It also comes with Intel's Turbo Boost and Hyper-Threading technology, designed to boost performance without impacting battery life too much.
It comes with 4GB of DDR3 RAM and contains an Nvidia GeForce GT 325M discrete graphics card with 1GB of memory. It comes with 500GB of hard drive space as standard.
Connectivity-wise it comes with built-in 802.11b/g/draft n WLAN, Bluetooth, a four-in-one Card Reader, three USB ports, one e-Sata port, and one HDMI port.
It also comes with a Blu-ray or Super Multi optical drive and Cinema Pro, making it a viable multimedia machine.
The main focus of the F Series of notebooks, however, seems to be its design. MSI said that it wants these notebooks to be "a symbol of vogue" as well as a "luxury item". It has a sheek black exterior, but this is not really any more impressive than other notebooks on the market, including in other ranges by MSI.
The standard version of the notebook will be available to buy from Argos for £599.99 from early August.
