Reviews for the MSI CX480

70% MSI CX480 Notebook Review
Source: Tech2.in.com English
MSI’s CX480 is priced at Rs. 33,999 and it comes bundled with Windows 7 Home Premium. It has a smaller screen size at 14 inches and relatively slower graphics card compared to the Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830TG. The price difference between the two is around Rs. 8,000 and whilst choosing, if you want a smaller laptop with good specs, then MSI’s CX480 is a decent buy.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 520M: Entry level graphics card based on the new GF119 chip with a 64 Bit memory bus or on the GF108 with 128 Bit memory bus but lower clock rates. 

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

14.0": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


2.2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
