Mesh makes its own PCs but it doesn't make its own laptops. Instead, it takes machines like this one -- the MSI PR600 -- and resells it under its own brand name.
The laptop is built around Intel's latest power-saving Centrino technology for laptops -- so we expected it to have not just good performance but also better than average battery life. But did it live up to these expectations?
The PR600 isn't the most stylish laptop we've ever come across, but the black and silver colour scheme is not exactly offensive to the eye and the laptop's chassis certainly feels well built.
Like most of the desktop replacement laptops around at the moment it uses a display with a glossy coating. This makes colours really leap from the screen and adds extra contrast that really looks wonderful when watching DVDs or viewing slideshows of photos. However, the coating also means it's more reflective, which can be a problem if you're using it outdoors.
A neat little extra perched at the top of the display is the 1.3-megapixel camera. It's handy to have for making video calls using something like Skype or Windows Live Messenger.
When it comes to storage you get a 160GB hard drive, which is enough to hold a decent amount of MP3s, digital snaps or videos and the 2GB of RAM keeps Windows Vista Premium ticking along nicely.
