Default MSI GX600 Performance Laptop Review

MSI laptops are becoming more popular with good reason, offering excellent performance at competitive prices. Their latest gaming laptop comes with retro style Turbo button which overclocks the CPU on the fly. Equipped with 8600M GT and 2Gb ram this multimedia power house aims to impress.

Like the review very much, read the whole thing

Only thing that I'd like to be more elaborated are the battery tests, or rather "a" battery test, if possible a repeatable one.

this test is repeatable
running 3DMark06 in loop until system shuts down isn't very hard

Not really light use hey A battery test should consist out of two or three scenario's : for example: wireless browsing while listening to music (1), watching a DVD (2), gaming (or 3D06 if you like) (3).

You said it : "mentioned". Put an exact figure (minutes) on it to compare in future laptop reviews.
