A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

This is coupled with a dual-core Intel Core i5 processor. We'd have love to have seen the GX740 with a quad-core option, like its predecessor the GT740, but that would have taken it over the magic four-figure price barrier. Sacrificing two CPU cores s...

Bottom line I really like the MSI GX740 gaming notebook. Its CPU isn’t as powerful as some of the other full gaming notebooks I have tested with desktop CPUs inside, but for the price, it performs very well. This machine is also very adept at multimedia. In fac...

Tweet MSI recently expanded its GX gaming series of laptops with the introduction of the aggressively priced 15-inch GX640 and the 17-inch GX740, with the latter available for less than £900 - not bad for a serious gaming model. But, is it any good?Th...

If you're after a gaming laptop, MSI is usually a good company to check out, as its machines tend to offer a lot for the money. Unfortunately this wasn't so much the case with the GT740 , which was let down by garish looks and underpowered graphics, so le...

The striking design of the MSI GX740 laptop isn’t about style, sophistication or elegance – it’s about power, speed and excitement. Its bold red interior and retro-futuristic design let you know immediately that the MSI GX740 is a gaming machin, and...
Bottom line The MSI GX740 laptop offers very good build quality, fantastic gaming performance and a good sound system. However, it’s a shame that its internal Blu-ray drive isn’t backed up by a full-HD screen. Paul Monckton...

MSI’s GX740 is a desktop replacement laptop, built with gaming – and little else - in mind. To this end, it's been kitted out with a moderately powerful Intel Core i5 430M processor, 4GB of RAM and, most impressively, a 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics...
