Reviews for the MSI CR640-020UK
Source: Computer Active
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.
