Reviews for the MSI CR640-020UK

60% MSI CR640 laptop computer
Source: Computer Active English
The design of the MSI CR640, we are told, is inspired by top-of-the-range luxury sedan cars, with the aim of giving the computer ‘unassuming sophistication and beauty'. The reality is closer to a delivery van: large, clunky-looking and grey. The MSI CR640 performed quite well for the price, but its quality and comfort problems let it down.

With its reasonably powerful specification, excellent usability and colourful screen, there's plenty to recommend the MSI CR640. However, if you need something to carry around all day, this isn't the best option.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.


2.6 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.
