You can easily and economically convert your current keyboard or laptop to a bilingual board with our durable language keytop label set.
Today we are going to review a mainstream product, in which overclocking is offered as a standard feature—MSI Megabook GX600. By the way, even though the specifications mention three USB ports, this notebook offers four physical ports like in other MSI models. Its weight published in the specs matches the actual value, but you should also add the PSU weight of 820 g.
As we have already mentioned in the introduction, the main distinctive feature and one of the main advantages of this notebook is its stock overclocking function.
The Turbo button didn't work in the battery mode—it would have raised power consumption beyond reasonable values. According to test results, the GX600 battery (9-cell pack) has the capacity of 77622 mWh. It's a good result for a large gaming notebook with a large display and high-performance components.
So, we can draw a conclusion that modern games are limited mostly by the graphics system of the notebook, not by its processor (which is fast enough to process necessary data), so engineers should focus on the graphics system. As far as I know, MSI is the first company to offer several mainstream models with such keyboards, including products for home users.
Interestingly, the left part of the keyboard is untouched—that is the left shift is of the standard length. The above points sound like drawbacks, but when you start typing actively, narrow keys in the right part of the keyboard become a serious problem—it's difficult and inconvenient to type using this keyboard. Its case design is actually no different from regular MSI notebooks, so it produces a similar impression.
And finally, the cursor arrows and four buttons in the right part of the keyboard, which are often used by gamers, are also red. On the whole, this notebook has an aggressive design to match its positioning: not very expensive, but cool. What concerns overall ergonomics of the case, this notebook also copies a lot of models from this manufacturer.
The left flank houses an optical drive, two USB ports, modem and LAN ports, and a Kensington lock port. The right flank contains a power connector (the power plug does not go to the connector all the way, so the plug always seems loose), a VGA port, S-video, HDMI, two USB ports, 4-pin IEEE1394, an ExpressCard slot, a eSATA port and a connector for the TV antenna.
This notebook uses a standard audio system: its speakers are not very loud, they reproduce only the upper part of medium and high frequencies, the stereo effect is unassuming. Gaming notebooks use powerful components and high clock rates, so they are much hotter than regular notebooks. The cooling system is quite noisy at full speed, but it does not stand out in the normal mode.
Thirdly, the unique overclocking system (for a notebook)—a free way to increase performance. External interfaces, for example HDMI and eSATA, let this notebook act as an entertainment center—you can plug it to a TV set or even replace it. And finally, the notebook comes with a good bundle: it's bundled with a good MSI laser mouse for gamers, good folding headphones. And finally, the GX600 is relatively inexpensive for all its advantages—it will also be appreciated by students in the first place. This document describes keys you may find on your keyboard and some of the functions available when keys are used in combination with each other. Despite all letter keys having a capital letter on them, pressing them on their own produces a lower case letter.  Capital letters are produced by pressing and holding down the Shift key and then pressing the corresponding letter on the keyboard.
These keys usually run along the top of the keyboard, and are marked F1 to F12.  Many packages have defined these keys to be used as shortcuts for commonly-needed actions but you rarely need to use them.
Situated on the right of the keyboard, these keys have numbers and control functions on them.
If the NumLock key is not pressed, it means that the other items marked on these keys are operational. When using word processors, the 'up arrow' moves your cursor up one line of typed characters at a time, the 'down' arrow moves it down one line of typed characters at a time. The Home key moves the cursor to the beginning of the current line of typed characters, the End key moves it to the end. Some of these keys are used in conjunction with other keys to perform specific tasks within software packages. This key is used to send the cursor to the beginning of the next line (for instance when typing text in a word processing package).
Hold down this key and press a letter, to get an upper case letter, or press any other key, eg a number, to get the symbol above it.  Some keyboard shortcuts also use the Shift key. Primarily used to cancel a command (instead of pressing Enter) or to escape from a process which may be in an odd state.
Used in conjunction with other keys to carry out functions specific to your computer system.
Used to produce the third character located on the key above the Tab key.  Hold this down and press the key above Tab. Allows the numeric keys to be used on the numeric keypad, rather than the cursor control keys.


Used by the operating system and applications - actions variable depending on program used.
Sends a copy of everything on your current screen to the Windows Clipboard.  From here you can paste it into an application, eg a Word document. However, such ideas were implemented only in some hardcore machines the size of a large suitcase—with 20" displays and big 80mm fans. MSI representatives asserted at the presentation that when this button was pressed in the battery mode, the notebook would go into a reduced power consumption mode.
On the whole, you can take the GX600 with a high capacity battery on a trip—its battery time is long enough to watch a lengthy movie. First of all, we tested it with SmartFPS 1.5, in order to evaluate performance in games both in standard and turbo modes. We won't comment on test results in Battlefield 2, because the game probably conflicts with Vista. In particular, engineers from this company designed a keyboard that fits the standard 15.4" notebook case, but has a full-size numeric pad. To all appearances, the engineers considered it a break-through and other keys were added by the residual principle. We understand that a numeric pad requires sacrifices, but the engineers made them in the wrong places. In my opinion, it would have been better to narrow the left part of the keyboard a little instead of compressing the right part so much.
And finally, we should mention that the key in the left bottom corner of this keyboard is Fn, not ctrl.
On one hand, it has the luxurious numeric pad to type digits (or to use as cursor key when you edit texts).
MSI traditionally offers just a few of them: switch between monitors, disable touchpad, adjust brightness, control audio volume, mute, sleep. The keyboard panel features the same patterns as on the display lid, the same concerns the panel above the keyboard.
But I don't like this style in autos or notebooks, so I will not give my personal comments. We mentioned many times that cables from external speakers or a microphone may catch on your wrists.
So it's bundled with a special laser mouse from MSI—by the way, it also has an aggressive red-and-black design.
This option is very useful, if this notebook is the only multimedia system at home: it becomes almost like a consumer device. The notebook will cope with any modern tasks, including mathematical calculations for students.
These generally consist of punctuation (including accents and quotes) and mathematical symbols. This facility is often used by data entry operators who need to input vast amounts of numerical data by touch. PgUp is an abbreviation for Page Up, and moves your cursor up one page, and PgDn moves it down one page. The decimal point key beneath the number 3 key also has a Del function, allowing deletion of items at the current cursor position. It is also used to finish a command and tell the computer to execute the command just typed. You can also click and drag to highlight text and then press the Backspace key to delete text. Setting tab positions allows you to move the cursor to defined positions, for instance when typing figures in columns. Also used to enter ASCII codes, including non-English characters, by holding down the Alt key and entering the number from the numeric keypad. Num Lock mode is activated by pressing the key once and is indicated by a light on the panel above the numeric keypad.
For two reasons mostly: first, a notebook is traditionally used for work, when stability is more important than increased performance. It increases performance of a processor and the bus working with memory, graphics card, and other periphery. We tested the notebook in reading mode (browsing a book in a text reader) in Windows Vista. Secondly, we tested this notebook and the GX610 modification, based on the AMD platform, using our test procedure for processors and platforms. Only Prey demonstrates a good performance gain, but I think that the test is not correct here (the test includes a moment with a splash screen, when it calculates fps, that is results depend on a CPU only). But last time the keyboard was not secured well in the case, which spoiled our impressions. The keys are a bit too hard to press, and their feedback is not good enough, but it's all right. On the other hand, it suffers from a number of awkward solutions and limitations in ergonomics. On the whole, the notebook looks according to its positioning—not too cheap, but not expensive either. It has mediocre viewing angles, especially the vertical angle—brightness and grayscale depend much on them.


Pay attention to a small button next to the left mouse button—it imitates a doubleclick. Besides, they can be folded four times and take very little space in this form, so you can take them with the notebook. This model is equipped with a unique keyboard—it's of average size, but it has a full-sized numeric pad. The GX600 is even equipped with a TV tuner, so you can use it instead of a usual TV set—on the go or in a dorm. These characters are obtained by pressing and holding down the Shift key before pressing the required key. To use the numeric option, press down the NumLock key above the 7 key.  There is usually a light above the numeric keypad that lights when the NumLock key has been pressed. The arrows are known as cursor control keys (the cursor is the flashing bar on the computer screen that shows your current position). By holding down the Shift key then pressing Tab, you can move to the previous tab position.
Scroll Lock mode is activated by pressing the key once and is indicated by a light on the panel above the numeric keypad. You can also click and drag to highlight text and then press the Delete key to delete text. Secondly, notebooks are traditionally equipped with compact, less efficient cooling systems, so operating conditions are not very favorable even in the standard mode. However, it's too wide, so your left palm accidentally touches its surface and moves the cursor. The next button controls wireless interfaces (it switches between Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi + Bluetooth, all disabled). As far as I understand, it's a fast display, so its drawbacks are technological consequences of this fact. However, this notebook comes with good folding headphones, which significantly raises the value of the GX600 as a gaming notebook even in its standard bundle.
It significantly raises usability of this keyboard—technical or accountant students will certainly value this feature.
It's built on a modern powerful platform, supports the latest technologies, modern eSATA and HDMI slots, HD-DVD.
When you have finished typing the numbers you want you can press the NumLock key again to release it (and turn the light off).  You would do this if you want to use the other options on these keys (see Cursor control keys). And when overclocked (especially if one raises voltage), it fails to cool down the machine, which may result in malfunctions. In my opinion, it's not fit for this task—the cooling system has to be overhauled significantly, before it can be overclocked. The Del key is often used for editing texts, but it's installed in the middle of the row, so it's not convenient. They narrowed two leftmost columns of letter keys and keys on the right side of the keyboard.
It's done to fit the cursor keys (by the way, they might have installed these keys lower, but it would have required case redesignb¦). Secondly, there is a large MSI logo on the display lid, backlit when the notebook is switched on. The notebook has a number of ergonomic limitations, it's a compromise: more performance and features for an average price. By the way, as notebooks are initially designed for work, people usually don't try to squeeze maximum from them and do with the standard capacity. When the notebook works from the electric mains, it automatically raises CPU and FSB clock rates. But you'd better use another display, if you work with graphics and watch high-quality movies. The manufacturer didn't forget about such bonuses as a remote control and an antenna for the TV tuner.
And large brands offer their own unique designs, which allow not to narrow main letter keys. According to the representative of the manufacturer at the presentation, this button in the battery mode should switch the notebook to the power saving mode. Red patterns around the logo draw attention to it and make the notebook look more aggressive. When the numeric pad works in the Numpad mode, it's not convenient to use the upper row of keys. The main problem is, such narrow keys are not situated where you expect them to, when you use the touch typing method. It seems to me that keyboard ergonomics was not in the project list, they just copied desktop keyboards.
