Reviews for the MSI CR610-013UK
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.
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.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
