MSI introduced five new C-series notebooks this week: the CX600, CX700, CR600-013, CR600-017 and CR700. Here's a snip from the press release:
The 600 models are lightweight 16 inch notebooks that weigh in at just 5.4 pounds and are only 1.18 inches thick – 20 percent thinner than the average 16 inch notebook. The 700 models are 17.3 inches and weighs just over 6 pounds. These trendy laptops feature a striking design with clean lines and 45 degree angled edges. All five models feature MSI’s Color Film Print Technology, which creates vivid designs when the unique surface interacts with ambient light.
The newest MSI C-Series notebooks feature widescreen LCD 16:9 aspect ratio high resolution displays (600 Models - 1366×768, 700 Models – 1600x900). These allow users to view DVDs in full widescreen with no black lines. The CX600 and CX700 are equipped with the ATI Mobility Radeon HD4330 3D discrete graphic card (512MB VRAM), capable of increasing display effectiveness by 49% with rich colors, sharper contrasts and better picture clarity.
Both CR600 models and the CR700 feature the NVIDIA GeForce 8200M GPU and an additional HDMI port for outstanding display capabilities and an enhanced visual experience. The CR600-017 offers users with more advanced viewing needs a superior CPU (Intel Pentium Dual Core T4300 2.1GHz) and a Blu-ray DVD player.
The new notebooks also deliver superior connectivity with an 802.11 b/g/n high speed WLAN. MSI also includes a 1.3 megapixel webcam on all new C-Series models, making it easy for users to create and share video content from anywhere to anyone in the world.
The new C-series models start at $549.99 MSRP and all comes with a 3 year limited warranty, which includes 1 year of global service.
