MSI GT60-20K
The MSI GT60-20K sits between the two, delivering a number of 17-inch class features in a 15-inch form factor. It’s a hefty machine, styled for hardcore gamers rather than Dieter Rams devotees, but some interesting capabilities set it aside from much of the competition. The standout component is the powerful Nvidia Quadro GPU. While most 15-inch mobile workstations are limited to a Quadro K2100M (2GB GDDR5), the MSI GT60-2OK has the thermal headroom to [more...]
