5 out of 5 eggsGood Notebook for the price!!

Pros: Great features for the price!
Big monitor!
Dedicated graphics card.

Cons: Had to RMA my first unit. HDD boot error kept me from booting into windows. Sent to MSI and got it back a little over 1 week later. Not worth taking away an egg.

Other Thoughts: MS has a pretty good track record with solid hardware and this little machine is no slouch. Hard to find a notebook with a dedicated graphics card for a decent price. If you are on a budget and need something with dedicated graphics for gaming. This should fit the bill nicely!!

5 out of 5 eggsA college kid's dream

Pros: -For being a very low end Intel processor, the i3 performs very impressively. Can easily perform many simple tasks simultaneously. I definitely underestimated the i3 series.
-520M is very capable of playing many of today's standard games. Ran Day of Defeat Source, TF2 and League of Legends on medium / high settings with at least 40+ fps fairly constantly.
-Many different options for battery consumption based on your activity.
-A LOT of special hotkeys with function button.. cool things like turning off the touchpad if you have a mouse, turning brightness down, camera/wi-fi switches, etc
-Some people don't like that hard drive is partitioned to two, but I think it is efficient for installing certain things off the OS hard drive.
-Looks beautiful and classy, some of my friends tell me it looks a lot more expensive than it is.
-I am a HUGE fan of the chiclet keyboard and mini keypad.
-For the price, the package is almost too good to be true.

Cons: -The only thing I could say I don't like about it is the max. resolution and the touchpad is very hard for me to get used to for some reason?? Haha
-Not a problem for me, since the 4GBs are sufficient for what I will do with the computer, but others would like 8GB I'm sure.

Other Thoughts: I bought the laptop on a Sunday and that following Thursday the price was lowered by $20.00... called Newegg and with no problems they refunded me $20.00 off my purchase price... incredible service once again.

ALSO, when updating drivers, you should go to MSI's website and get all driver downloads for the CX640.. my framerates in all games were garbage until I got the 520M drivers from MSI and NOT the nVidia website - performance boost had an immaculate and incredible difference.

Seriously, if you're on a budget, this laptop will please all realms of computing.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Good (Cheap) Laptop

Pros: Overall very good laptop. The esemble was quick and easy and i got it on the internet very quickly. The speakers are very average (if i could say) but i would recommend using headphones as i always am. The whole battery situation is very long-lasting and easy to refill.The touchpad is from my experience it feels sticky (And i haven't spilled anything on it either) the reason i say this is because it is very hard to move the mouse from place to place at a high speed. And the buttons are very nice , it doesn't split in the middle One reason of this notebook was for the good experiencing from gaming. In this case one of my favs. WoW: World Of Warcraft i installed on my computer. The installation was good and decent but not great. So when i finally played it was a lot laggy, but minutes more in the game it was fine and perfectly fine to play and enjoy . A cool feature this comp. also has is -press Fn 2x, which then enables you to choose 4 browsers Home, work, presentation, and personal.

Cons: Though i do have a little problem, it seems while in game the screen kind flashes a picture like when a tv loses signal, but its till fine. And the main problem is the keyboard. It comes with a cover on top to not get food, dirt, etc in between keys which i thought was a major problem. It kept making me press wrong buttons and keep skipping lines and sentences which turned out a big problem because of the kinds of buttons it pressed (Like the quit browser button.

Other Thoughts: The Camera is also very nice- 1.3 MP i wouldn't say HD but it is very possible for a good video chat.

*You may need to change setting a bit in-game for the best Gaming experience*
Typing 4/10
Touchpad 7/10
I recommend using a mouse whenever you can (Prefferably Wireless)*
Camera 9/10

4 out of 5 eggsSlow video warm up?

Pros: Runs Starcraft 2 on high 40 fps

Fast, well priced, really like it.

Cons: The monitor warms up slowly, I do a lot of digital coloring and the colors when you start the laptop is not the same as an hour later.

Other Thoughts: <3

5 out of 5 eggsMSI CX640

Pros: Nice all around laptop. Dedicated graphics card and good speakers. Optimus extends battery life. I wanted a laptop with a dedicated graphics card and Intel processor for this price range. I like the small number pad on right side of keyboard. Like the scroll feature on touch pad when I got used to it. Good battery life for my uses.

Cons: Display is thinner than other laptops I have had but not enough of a concern to lower my rating of product.

Other Thoughts: Second generation HM65 chipset. MSI has been around a long time and I bought because of reputation. New drivers available on their site. Use for gaming with kids very happy with performance along with office applications I use. Very clean laptop. 4 usb ports with 2 left side 3.0 and right side 2.0. Excellent buy for price paid.
