MSI GT680

 

With Intel's new Sandy Bridge alongside Nvidia GTX 460M graphics, 8GB of RAM and twin 7,200rpm HDDs in RAID, this surprisingly affordable gaming laptop is a beast.

Blazingly fast ; Excellent value ; Class-leading battery life ; Extensive connectivity

Not the most attractive ; Build quality sometimes suspect

It's not the most stylish or best-built gaming laptop we've seen, but when it comes to features and power for the money, few rivals can match the MSI GT680. Throw in an above-average screen, impressive speakers and excellent battery life, and this is...

MSI GT680 Gaming Laptop Review (SSD/Bluray/i7/Nvidia)

 

There is certainly no shortage of high powered gaming laptops available on the market today, but it takes something really special to stand out in such a crowded marketplace. MSI have sent us their GT680 gaming laptop for review which features a dual...

great all round performance ; striking looks ; good screen quality ; full sized keyboard ; competitively priced

graphics power is limited when dealing with the latest Direct X 11 engines ; can get a little loud under load ; no backlit keyboard

KitGuru says: A very fine laptop from MSI and worth looking into, especially if you are limited to £1,500 or less.

MSI GT680 Preview: Blazing Fast

 

We got our hands on an early unit of MSI's latest Intel Sandy Bridge gaming notebook, the MSI GT680R. We give it a quick spin to get a feel of how fast this hot rod can go as well as to see if there's anything else in store for us.

MSI GT680 Sandy Bridge Gaming Laptop Review

 

When MSI unveiled the new GT680R gaming laptop at CES this year, the company touted it as one of the "fastest, most powerful gaming notebooks in the world." As one of the first laptops to take advantage of Intel's Sandy Bridge processor, this laptop...

Core i7-2630QM processor ; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M graphics ; Full HD (1980x1080) native res panel ; Two USB 3.0 ports

Could use an SSD instead of RAID 0 HDs ; Short battery life even for a DTR machine

MSI Global Warranty: Don't count on it

 

So, it took MSI at least two weeks before they arrange for a spare part to be shipped. I told them that is really outrageous, for MSI HQ to wait so long to send a small piece of hardware. They told me that MSI will replace the laptop if they can't fix...

Admittedly, I have the GT660 which precedes this model and it is probably discontinued so I write here to warn everyone. The new GT680 looks like a monster of a machine. I'm writing this review to tell you more about MSI global warranty and I think it...

Global warranty. I got my GT660 in January 2011 from newegg. There are two major brands with Global warranty: MSI and Asus. Both reputable brands. I found MSI GT660 and the price was right. I spend my times between the US and Turkey so global warranty...
