The MSi CX640 is a mid-range to high-end notebook laptop similar to the MSi CR640. The sole difference between the two laptops is that the CX640 boasts an Nvidia GeForce GT520M graphics card with Optimus technology while the CR640 only sports integrated Intel HD graphics. Otherwise, the two laptops sport very similar specs including Sandy Bridge processor options, MSi's hard drive protection and MSi Time Stamp software.

The CX640's Nvidia GeForce GT520M graphics card allows it to handle high definition video while providing adequate mobile gaming performance with most modern DirectX 11 titles; the Nvidia GeForce GT520M's Optimus switching technology allows the CX640 to offer extended battery life by switching to integrated graphics when necessary. Its hard drive protection features a reinforced airbag design, making the CX640 more resistant to data loss. Meanwhile, the CX640's Time Stamp software allows users to make a system restore point at the press of a button.
