About the MSI CX61 2PC

The MSI CX61 2PC-499US 15.6" Gaming Notebook Computer was built with multimedia use in mind. It features a 15.6" HD widescreen display. The screen has an anti-reflective finish so you'll be able to play in brightly lit conditions with ease. The 1366 x 768 native resolution is provided by an NVIDIA GeForce GT 820M graphics card with 2GB of GDDR3 discrete memory.

The system is powered by a dual-core 4th generation Haswell 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5-4200M processor. It also has 8GB of DDR3L RAM, a 750GB 5400 rpm hard drive, a SuperMulti DVD burner, a multi-format media card reader, 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam and microphone. There are also built-in stereo speakers.

Windows 8.1 is the installed operating system. Windows 8.1 improves the user experience of Windows 8 with several additions and changes. The Start button returns, but has two limited core functions. A left click takes you to the redesigned Start screen featuring tiles that update in real-time. A right click brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control Panel and more. You will also be able to boot directly to the traditional desktop screen instead of the Windows 8.1 Start screen. Windows 8.1 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.

Dual-core 4th-Gen Haswell Intel Core i5 Performance
The GX61 houses a 4th generation Haswell Intel Core i5-4200M processor. Its dual cores can reach a stock speed of 2.5 GHz. The processor can also be overclocked up to 3.1 GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 4th generation Haswell processor uses low voltage to extend battery life without sacrificing performance. With a dedicated 3MB L3 cache, 8GB of DDR3L RAM and Intel Hyper-Threading technology, you'll be able to push the dual cores up to four virtual cores for quick and efficient multitasking.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 820M Graphics
Built for a visually stunning gaming experience, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 820M arms you with industry-leading technologies including DirectX 11 support, dynamic PhysX effects, CUDA and more. Based on NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 820M provides 2GB of GDDR3 discrete memory. The result is reliable performance, power efficiency and high image quality.

15.6" HD Anti-Reflective LED-Backlit Display
The 15.6" display has an anti-reflective finish designed to cut down on the amount of light that reflects off it, reducing eyestrain and sharpening the picture to provide a more enjoyable viewing experience. The display also has a HD 1366 x 768 native resolution so you can play 720p HD content natively without upscaling or letterboxing. You can also output video to an external display via the HDMI port.

Stay Connected
The CX61 features a 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 jack for high-speed wired Internet access. If you want to go mobile, it also supports 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi so you can play wherever there is Wi-Fi. There is also Bluetooth 4.0 technology so you'll be able wirelessly connect peripherals, such as a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

USB 3.0
With USB 3.0 ports, you'll be able to achieve a transfer rate of 5 Gbps. That's 10 times faster than USB2.0. USB 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 so you'll still be able to use all your previous generation USB peripherals.

Windows 8.1
The Return of the Start Button After many requests from Windows users, the Start button makes its triumphant return in Windows 8.1. While it may not be exactly the same as its predecessor in Windows 7, the Start button has two core functions. A left click on the Start button will take you to the Windows 8.1 Start screen featuring live tiles. A right click on the Start button brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control Panel, Network options and more.

Boot Directly to the Desktop
Windows 8.1 gives you the choice of booting to the Windows 8.1 Start screen with live tiles or booting to the familiar desktop screen of Windows 7. Users can also boot directly into an app or app view if they choose to.

To the Cloud
With Windows 8.1, when signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your personal Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favorites. You can also connect to services such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and more.

Windows Store
In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse thousands of apps. Choose from the featured apps or grab one of the most frequently downloaded apps to see what all the hype is all about. You can also see how other people rate apps.
