If you’ve been hunting for a good deal on an Intel Core i5 laptop, today might just be your lucky day, as argos.co.uk has a great offer on the MSI CR643 laptop. Don’t miss the chance to get your hands on an i5 laptop with 4 GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive for as low as £379.99.

MSI CR643 Overview

The best thing about the quick evolution in the field of IT is that it tightens the competition, forcing manufacturers to create better and more affordable products, offering users plenty of options to choose from. One considerable option is the MSI CR643 laptop, a powerful middle-class machine that’s aimed at users who have moderate needs and want a quality product.

In an attempt to give the CR643 a premium look, MSI opted for a glossy finish for the lid and the palm rest area, which does in fact make the laptop look better, at the cost of being very prone to fingerprints. Build quality is good, the laptop having a solid feel, with no squeecky joints or cheap plastics.

The design of the MSI CR643 is not the only thing that left us with a good impression, as the laptop is quite quick as well. Responsible for this is the powerful Sandy Bridge Intel Core i5 processor paired with 4GB of RAM, making the laptop agile, even when put under some heavy pressure. We’re talking about daily tasks here, such as web-browsing, multimedia and office, because as you may have guessed, the laptop doesn’t do very well on the gaming side due to the lack of a discrete graphics card. However, the MSI CR643 is not intended to be a gaming laptop so we can’t really complain about this aspect.

While gaming is not the laptop’s strong point, multimedia is, the laptop being equipped with everything you might need: a HDMI port, a large 500GB hard drive and a webcam with integrated microphone.
