MSI WS60 portable workstation includes Core i7 processor, Windows 7

Computer hardware manufacturer MSI has unveiled a new work-focused notebook running Windows 7 Professional, which it touts as being thin and light for a portable workstation. Spiritual successor to the GS60 gaming notebook and weighing in 4.36 pounds and measuring under 0.8 inches thick, the WS60 boasts an Intel Core i7 processor clocked at 3.4GHz, with a choice of 15.6-inch 16:9 displays including a 2880x1620 resolution option and a 1080p version with eDP Wide View Angle technology.

Inside the notebook is 16GB of RAM with Nvidia Quadro K2100M graphics, and while both versions include a 1TB 7200RPM hard drive paired with a 128GB SSD for storage, the 3K-resolution model adds another SSD in RAID 0 for an extra speed boost. Both models include Killer Ethernet and Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, an SD card reader, three USB 3.0 ports, HDMI 1.4-video output, a 1080p webcam, four Dynaudio Tech speakers with a subwoofer, and a SteelSeries full-color backlit keyboard with anti-ghosting technology.

The WS60 with the 1080p display and one SSD drive is available now for $2,300, while the higher-resolution version with increased SSD storage sells for $2,600.
