Reviews for the MSI CR620
The pricing for the MSI CR620 starts from Rs. 38,000. That's fair pricing -- at par with a competitive Dell Studio 15. It comes with a two-year warranty, which is pretty good since most manufacturers give only one. The MSI CR620 is a pretty decent laptop. Except for the ports placed at the back, there aren't any major flaws with it. But on the other hand, there isn't anything great or out of the box that would make us go out and recommend it.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
