One press from the "Turbo" button overclocks the Core 2 Duo T7200 by 20%.
MSI GX-600 notebook reintroduces the turbo button

Earlier today MSI demonstrated the new GX600 gaming notebook at Computex 2007. The GX600 packs quite a few features into its welterweight 5.7lb package. But arguably the best feature on the GX600 is the Turbo Drive Engine technology.

When the GX600 is plugged in with AC power, the push of the turbo button automatically turns on Acceleration Mode. Acceleration Mode increases the processor’s front-side bus and raises the overall clock speed by 20%. A quick press of the button a second time returns the processor back to stock clock speeds. 

Intel’s recently announced Santa Rosa platform forms the base of the MSI GX600. The MSI GX600 features Intel’s PM965 Express chipset, a Core 2 Duo processor and 802.11n wireless networking technology.

A GeForce 8600M GT graphics card delivers DirectX 10 compatible graphics. MSI equips the GeForce 8600M GT mobile graphics with 512MB of video memory. MSI pairs the GeForce 8600M GT with a 15.4” WXGA widescreen display. The MSI GX600 also features HDMI and S-video outputs for external display connectivity.

Other notable features of the GX600 include an integrated 1.3 megapixel camera, Gigabit LAN, optional Bluetooth, PCMCIA Type II expansion and a separate NUMPAD on the keyboard.

What you need is the trusty app that allowed everyone to do just that: "MoSlo". It allowed me finish the current Ultima games on my speedy P90 way back when ever that was.

A quick search brought this link up:

I haven't tried that version but it claims to do the same thing.

You savior is here, and infinitely more useful than MoSlo used to be:

You can run those old games from the comfort of XP or Vista, dual core, and SLI to boot. And thanks to some filters, optional of course, those old games look like you remember them.

Couldn't one just run VMware server and play their games on a virtual machine running dos?

I currently run ms-dos 7.1 (win98se) in a virtual machine with no problems...

Now I haven't tried running any games under it, but i don't see why it couldn't be done.
