The main design of MSI Gaming Series notebooks is 15.6”, 16” and 17.3” size.
Different size comes with different ID style design, the GT683R comes with newer gamer style ID, made some special design on 3D shield and LED lights,
that make the notebooks ID looks with better quality with style and similar as race car shape.
This is the main improvement from MSI to make their Gaming Series more gamer oriented design.
The 2.1 speakers system is excellent, and could present better surround sound stage with THX technology, it’s really good for gaming and movies.
Keyboard designed with independent number keys, also marked the WASD keys for smoother FPS gaming experience.
LED lights also have different lighting style, the lights could set to follow the tempo and right/left sound volume.
Look on the spec., it built with Core i7 CPU and nVIDIA GTX560M graphics, for storage systems used dual SATA3 with HDD RAID 0 features,
these are all definitely high performance combinations and could fulfill most heavy loading usages.
The overall of GT683R presents high class design; it’s indeed a good notebook of the gaming series.
If it could add in some overclock features in BIOS such as Alianware notebooks, and enhance the ID design with better shield material, it will become better.
MSI GT683R also have many different specification combinations in different regions, this review was based on my on hand version of the specifications.
At last I apply the color celebration file by Spider tool, it fits for all GT680/GT683 series notebooks.
