The main chassis is very durable and appears to be very sophisticated. The glossy plastic easily attracts fingerprints and you will have to clean the laptop many times by using a microfiber cloth to get rid of the smudges it attracts.
Display, Video and Audio Performance The MSI GT660R has got a 16 inch TFT display screen. It has got LED backlighting and has a display resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. If you are a serious gamer, then you will have a problem with this. Most gaming notebooks that come with 16 or 17 inch display screen have display resolution of over 1440 x 900 pixels. It comes with Nvidia GeForce GTX285M video card that provides you with 1 GB of memory. It may not be the best graphics card in the business but can be easily used for playing all the current games.

Storage Another cool thing about the MSI GT660R is that it has got a huge storage space i.e. 2 500GB hard disk drives in RAID 0. The only problem with the RAID technology is that if one of your hard disk crashes, you will lose data from both the hard disks. We advise you to make use of an external hard disk space on this mention as a precaution.
