I7, GT 650M
The MSI GE60 is not the fastest for this price (the Y500 is), but it has some advantages over some competitors. All in all you get a very good laptop:
- The good matte FullHD screen found in the higher end model GT60. Very good viewing angles compared to the Y500 screen, which is also a glossy one.
- The GT 650M GDDR5 GPU + I5 CPU ensures good gaming performance.
- 7200RPM 750GB HDD
- Not too heavy with only 2.6kg – not lightweight but compared to the 3kg competitors it can be a plus for some.
- Windows 7
- The Y500 mentioned above. Lenovo blew the performance curve with an additional GT 650M GPU. Overall a good machine with good performance, 1080p screen and good sound. However, it still has a glossy screen with lower viewing angles and a 5400RPM HDD.
- The Asus N56VZ with an I7, GT 650M DDR3, nice matte screen, very good build quality and very low noise and temps.
- Others in the 800$-1000$ range
