The MSI GE700 is an entertainment and gaming mobile laptop that promises to be one of the most incredible multimedia and gaming device that has shown up in recent years. It has an Intel Core i5 processor at its heart, and an ATI Radeon HD GPU that already has support for DirectX 11 to back up this claim, and great reviews on Thetechinsider. With its 2.66 GHz Intel Core i5 processor the MSI GE700 provides lots of power for the laptop user while still being able to provide impressive energy efficiency rates. This is even more amplified by the incorporated Turbo Boost technology on the Intel HM55 chipset that could further the computing power of the unit up to almost 3.2 Ghz.
To productively manage this awesome power, there are a host of power management profiles preset into the machine that the user can choose from. This includes separate settings for video games and word processing duties and even settings for movies and for the Turbo Battery.
The ATI Radeon HD 5730 GPU of the MSI GE700 comes with a very generous 1Gb of DDR3 memory. It also has its own GPU Boost technology that lets users get an instant boost on the graphics performance of their machine with a simple push of a button. This incredible GPU also provides the MSI GE700 with 3D capabilities and the much needed DirectX11 support that makes the most out of the machine’s beautiful 1680×1050, 17 inch LCD display.
Using the Cinema Pro, the MSI GE700 becomes a marvelous movie machine that has a rich and colorful cinematic detail. The audio is clear and full coming out of the high definition speakers and subwoofer that are SRS Premium Sound certified.
For storage concerns, the MSI GE700 is equipped with dual SATA options that could handle up to 1 TB of data, more than enough to store hours of movies and games. Meanwhile a maximum of 4 GB of DDR3 memory can be fed into the RAM. Wireless connection is not a problem for the MSI GE700 with the 802.11b/g/n and the Bluetooth option. For wired connections on the other hand, three ports for USB 2.0 have been provided.
The MSI GE700 also boasts a built-in 720p crystal clear high definition webcam. This pretty piece of hardware shows off video at 30 frames per second even in widescreen format. This allows more than one person to be included in the shot without them having to squeeze into the frame.
