MSI Classic notebooks

Taiwanese PC maker MSI has introduced the 14-inch CR400 notebook, which is the first of a new Classic series of portable PCs that will also eventually include the 16-inch CX600 and CR600 along with the 17.3-inch CX700 and CR700. The series will be marked by high-end design and quality builds, MSI claims. The CR400 has a uni-body design with 45-degree angled edges and is coated in MSI's Color Film Print that reveals new patterns depending on the angle at which it's viewed.

The CR400 is powered by an Intel Core 2 Duo CPU of unspecified clock speed and uses NVIDIA's GeForce 8200M G graphics chipset for processing video. The LED-backlit display has a 1366x768 resolution. Hard drive choices include a 250GB, 320GB and 500GB units, all of which come preloaded with Windows Vista Home Premium.

As per usual, MSI equips the CR400 with a DVD drive, a 4-in-1 card reader, three USB ports, a 1.3-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi and a six-cell battery. Bluetooth remains an option, as does a larger nine-cell battery. The system weighs 4.4lbs. MSI has not released prices or a ship date for the CR400 and it's also unknown when the notebook will arrive on US shores.
