Back in March, we talked a bit about the MSI GX740 gaming notebook. The thing looks cool with its big screen and red accents and it promised some nice specifications as well. MSI has announced that the rig is now shipping in the US.
The machine has a 17-inch TFT-LCD with a resolution of 1680 x 1050. Other features include 4GB of DDR3 RAM, 500GB of storage and a 9-cell battery. This configuration uses a Core i5 CPU and is available now at Amazon and Newegg for $1399.
The GPU inside the gaming notebook is the ATI Radeon HD 5870 with 1GB of GDDR5 RAM. The notebook also features MSI Turbo Boost Technology.
