After being announced way back in February ahead of the CeBIT trade show, MSI's GT660 gaming notebook is finally available in the United States.
Powered by an Intel Core i7-740QM processor, the GT660 has the important makings of a portable gaming computer, including dual Dynaudio premium sound speakers and a subwoofer, MSI's signature Cooler Boost technology, and a flashy design with red LED lighting on the fringes. But the most important spec is the graphics card, which is a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285M 3D Discrete GPU with 1GB of dedicated DDR3 memory.
If you have the need for speed and that Core i7 CPU isn't enough for you, take note that there is USB 3.0 support on this model as well.
