MSI CX640 Back to School Laptop

30 August 2011
  • Summary: Where are the days that you couldn't afford a decent laptop ? And when laptops where just for bussinessmen, not for pleasure. Not even imaginable that you would have to buy one just to study at school. Things have changed, in fact they have changed a lot. Partly due to the extreme growth of the world wide web, fast internet and wireless access, gaming,... School Books and towers of papers are a thing that soon will be part of a museum.

MSI CX640 Sandy Bridge notebook review

24 June 2011
  • Conclusion: On the face of it, MSI's good-looking CX640 laptop has most of the bases covered. £600 is a reasonable outlay for a 15.6in machine with an Intel Core i5 2410M chip, discrete GeForce GT 520M 1GB graphics card, 4GB RAM, USB 3.0, and 500GB hard-drive. The seamless switching between integrated graphics and GeForce is taken care of by NVIDIA's excellent Optimus technology, and battery life, via Intel's HD Graphics, is decent, hovering around three hours for movie playback.

Review MSI CX640 Notebook (GT 520M)

1 May 2011
  • Summary: Allrounder? The MSI CX640 is aimed at the multimedia notebook market, with its 15.6-inch display, new Intel Core i5-2410M, dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT 520M GPU and Optimus graphics switching. We take a detailed look at the newcomer from Taiwan and weigh up its good and bad qualities.
  • Pros: Attractive design, Large range of ports, Integrated brightness sensor, Nvidia Optimus graphics switching, Acceptable multimedia performance, Good battery life with CPU graphics, The new hardware in the form of the Intel Core i5-2410M, the good multimedia performance of the components, and the good range of ports.
  • Cons: Case is not fully robust, Sensitive glossy finish (near ports), Spongy input devices, High black value and low contrast, Most of all we would have liked to see a more robust case, better input devices, and more appropriate speakers for this type of laptop.

Expert Review

Tweak Town

  • Excerpt: The Sandy Bridge issue no doubt caused problems for motherboard manufacturers, but many forget about the issue affecting notebook ones. With the issue all sorted now, it's time for companies to start releasing notebooks based on the Sandy Bridge chipset. Opening up the CX640, you're dealing with a good looking notebook. We've got an aluminium look, but the casing is plastic.

MSI CX640 Notebook Review

12 September 2011
  • Conclusion: For under £600 does the CX640 deliver for a mid-range Notebook? We think it does. Taking into consideration all of the performance benchmarks we can clearly see that the CX640 gives good results for a Notebook. Our comparison may have revealed some big differences but it’s important to keep in mind that the test comparison is a mid-high end Sandy Bridge Desktop setup and although the performance gap between Notebook and Desktop is closing, there is still quite a gulf...
  • Pros: + Great entertainment mobile system, + Good battery life – up to 5 hours, + USB 3.0, + Layout accommodates workspace, + Backup features, + Good colour representation

MSI CX640 review

5 May 2011
  • Summary: A fast processor can't make up for the CX640's poor keyboard and terrible touchpad, and build quality isn't the best either.

Обзор ноутбука MSI CX640

31 March 2014
  • Excerpt: В семействе ноутбуков C (от слова Classic) компании MSI пополнение в виде пары моделей CX 640\CR640. Те, кто следит за продукцией этой компании, знают о ее привычке выпускать новинки  парами. Так что это практически идентичные ноутбуки на основе последнего поколения процессоров Intel Sandy Bridge, с той лишь разницей, что модель с маркировкой CR поставляется без дискретной графики, в отличии от CX. А поговорим мы как раз о последней – MSI CX640.
