Reviews for the MSI CX600-049US

80% MSI CX600-049US 16-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
For those wanting a larger screen on a budget laptop but not the weight or bulk, the MSI CX600-049US is a surprisingly strong package. In addition to its relatively small size, the system does manage to include a dedicated graphics processor that many laptops in the $600 and less price range lack. Even with these great features, the system is held back somewhat with the inclusion of a 32-bit version of the OS and a number of useful peripheral ports.

16.0": 16 inch display-variants exist since 2008 and partially got the market share of 15 inch notebooks. 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.


4 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.
