Reviews for the MSI CR610
Looking back at 2009, AMD's attempted to make notebooks rather sexy with the release of the ultra-portable Yukon and Congo platforms. AMD's Tigris notebook platform has intrinsic technological merit that needs to be realised quickly. MSI's CR610 large-screen notebook is a decent example of the technology, and should garner interest if released soon and priced below competing solutions featuring Intel's Centrino platform.

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.
