MSI shows 16-inch CR610 notebook with Windows 7
MSI on Thursday announced the upcoming release of the CR610, a 16-inch notebook PC running on AMD's Tigris platform with an Athlon II processor. Also, the PC ships with Windows 7 preloaded onto its 2.5-inch hard drive, which can be had in 250, 320 and 500GB capacities. Up to 4GB of RAM can be specified, with graphics handled by an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 chipset.
Otherwise, a Wi-Fi connection is integrated, but Bluetooth remains an option. A DVD burner is standard fare, as is a 1.3-megapixel camera and multimedia card reader. Complete with its six-cell battery, the CR610 weighs just 5.5lbs. MSI has not released pricing or shipping details for the notebook.
