MSI GT640-030UK review

 

A powerful laptop, but the 32-bit version of Windows 7 doesn't do it justice

Performance ; 3D power ; Build quality

32-bit Windows 7 ; Price ; Battery life

A well built laptop with a decent specification but we cant help feeling the price is a bit too high

PC Specialist PowerGlide Extreme GT640 review

 

The PC Specialist PowerGlide Extreme GT640 is a very fast overall performer, yet at only £899 is one of the least expensive all-in-one PCs around.

With uninspiring plastic looks, particularly noisy fans and no pre-installed software, this is no family PC. We feel the majority of users simply wouldn't put up with it. Where the PC Specialist PowerGlide Extreme GT640 scores is in Windows speed,...

MSI - GT640

 

Despite its reasonably compact size (360 x 260 x 36mm), MSI's GT640-30UK packs quite a punch. The 15.4-inch screened GT640 is part of MSI's G family of gaming notebooks: powered by an Intel quad core processor ...

While the GT640 may not be the fastest notebook around when it comes to gaming performance, it does cost a lot less than some of its competitors that are better equipped for gaming and it does make a very good desktop replacement machine, especially if...

Review MSI GT640 Gaming Notebook

 

New Horizons. MSI provides for a wind of change with its 15.4 inc

Compact case; Fairly light with 2.7 kg; High-end materials; Matt surfaces; Smooth and precise touchpad; Comparatively many interfaces; Very good application performance due to Core i7-720QM

High noise development; Display lacks luminosity; Reflective display; GeForce GTS 250M is too weak for image enhancements (AA & AF); Low battery life; Keyboard yields obviously and has a miserable layout; Fn key's position; Disappointing sound

Efficient gaming notebooks. With a GeForce GTS 160M, such as MSI's GT628. Or with a GeForce GTX 260M, like Alienware's M15x, Asus' G60J, Asus' G60VX, Asus' G71GX, Asus' G72GX and mySN's XMG5 (Clevo M860TU). Or with a GTX 280M (SLI) as in Cybersystem's...

MSI GT640

 

The GT640's design faults detract from any gaming experience you may be trying to immerse yourself in, and there's nothing worse than pressing the wrong button in the heat of the action.

Great performance ; Great connectivity ; Free backpack and mouse

Only two USB ports ; Battery life ; Keyboard layout ; Weak hinge ; Mouse buttons are too stiff

MSI GT640-030UK

 

Ive had this laptop for a whole month now and i'm very impressed by it. As far as "Bang for Buck" is concered, this is the best laptop I found after doing weeks of research. It run Crysis V1.2 at its max resolution (1680 x 1050) on medium settings at a...

It gets very very hot, to the point where you actually have to put something under it to stop it burning your legs through your trousers! However, this does not impede performance at all.
