Outdated, underpowered processor aside, there is little to recommend the MSI CR650. It feels flimsy and the glossy finish is prone to picking up fingerprints, though we must admit that the lid does a very solid job of protecting the screen, with no...

MSI's CR650 looks remarkably similar to recent Samsung laptops with its red fade-in stripe along the front edge of the case. It has the same underlying chassis as MSI's GE620, but has a completely different finish. Inside, too, it's an...

As it turns out, size does matter -- at least in the case of the CR650. We were excited to see what a Fusion packing 15.6-inch system could muster, but ultimately found its performance puny by comparison. We're not entirely ready to write this one...

De MSI CR650 is een instapnotebook dat uitstekend geschikt is voor basale computertaken (internetten, tekstverwerken en e-mail) en het bekijken van films, waarbij vooral de beeld en geluidskwaliteit positief opvallen. Voor net geen € 500 is dit...

Vi har tidigare testat Acers nya netbook med AMD:s nya Fusion-processor C-50, som fullständigt utklassar nuvarande Intel-baserade netbook-pc både i pris och prestanda. AMD har också ny teknik för snäppet kraftfullare datorer. MSI CR650 är en enkel...

MSi CR650 er en udmærket computer, hvor man får, hvad man betaler for. Computeren er et såkaldt consumer produkt, der gør det ikke henvender sig til nogle specielle grupper, men det er klart at pris og kvalitet hænger sammen....
