MSI GX723 Game Notebook

MSI chose the end of the week to launch its newest flagship gaming notebook, the GX723. The 17-inch desktop replacement centers on a 512MB GeForce GT 130M graphics chipset good enough to run modern games smoothly as well as MSI's characteristic Turbo Mode, which lets owners overclock the Core 2 Duo processor inside as long as the system is on AC power. The PC creator also manages to tuck five speakers into the limited space to produce Dolby sound without an external setup.

While MSI doesn't detail CPU clock speeds, it does give the GX723 a 1680x1050 display resolution along with a 320GB or 500GB hard drive and up to 4GB of memory. A 2-megapixel webcam and 802.11n Wi-Fi come with every system, while a 6- or 9-cell bettery is an option along with a Blu-ray or DVD drive.

In its typical approach to world product launches, the company doesn't provide specific configurations, prices or ship dates for the notebook.
