Reviews for the MSI CX600-049US
Source: Comp Reviews
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.
