Conclusion: It should be noted not all X460 notebooks are created equal as it seems MSI has given retailers a lot of creative control over what goes into the machine. For example, our review unit came with the Intel Core i7-2630QM, 4GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive and a DVD drive, all of these components are customizable. Most e-tailers seem to be selling a $1100 X460 with 6GB of memory and a 750GB hard drive, while SSD-equipped options should surface soon.
Excerpt: MSI have been releasing some very capable gaming and business systems in the last year. Today we are looking at their latest X460 machine, which is aimed at a user who demands maximum processing power. Our review machine is based around a powerful second generation Core i7 2630QM processor, which should be ideal for intensive tasks, such as 3D rendering and video encoding.
