Reviews for the MSI CR610-013UK

70% MSI CR610-013UK review
Source: Techradar English
Blu-ray compatibility at a great price, but poor usability and performance. Overall, the CR610-013UK is a competent entry-level media centre and its combination of a stunning screen and Blu-ray compatibility is a rare find at this price. Unfortunately, its poor usability and limited performance prevent it from achieving our highest recommendation.

ATI Radeon HD 4200: Onboard graphics adapter (RS880M chipset) with UVD2 (PIP support) and DX 10.1 support (compared to the older HD 3200). Beware, possibly no 2D acelleration in Windows XP (as the HD3200).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

M300:

Entry level dual core CPU by AMD which features an integrated memory controller (400MHz DDR2) and is based (partially?) on the K10 core. The performance should be compareable to an old Merom based 1.8 Core 2 Duo. The CPU supports 64 Bit and Virtualization.

16.0": 16 inch display-variants exist since 2008 and partially got the market share of 15 inch notebooks. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


MSI: Micro-Star International (MSI), is a Taiwan based computer hardware manufacturer since 1986 best known for desktop computer motherboards.

The market share of laptops with the MSI brand is rather low.
