MSI CX700, CR700 notebooks

Taiwan's MSI on Friday announced the last pair of notebook PCs that make up its newly-formed Classic series, with the 17.3-inch CX700 and CR700. These join the recently-introduced 16-inch CX600 and CR600 duo, which, in turn, followed the debut of the 14-inch CR400. While exterior styling is shared by all five notebooks, the CX700 and CR700 are meant for multimedia enthusiasts, with both sharing 2.1-channel speaker systems, an HDMI output and the same LED-backlit, 1600x900 resolution display.

Like with the 16-inch pair, the main difference between the CX700 and CR700 is the graphics processing hardware they contain. The former uses ATI's Mobility Radeon HD 4330 High Performance 3D card with 512MB of dedicated VRAM, while the latter uses NVIDIA's GeForce 8200M G GPU that shares memory with the system. RAM is unspecified, though there is support for up to 4GB.

Otherwise, specs are the same, including a choice of Intel Core 2 Duo processors and 250GB, 320GB or 500GB hard drives preloaded with Windows Vista Home Premium. There is a 1.3-megapixel webcam and built-in microphone, Wi-Fi, and a gigabit Ethernet port. Bluetooth V2.0 with EDR remains an option on either system. A 4-in-1 card reader, three USB ports and a DVD burner are other commonalities. Paired with 6-cell batteries, the systems weigh about 6.6lbs.

As with the other Classic-series notebooks, pricing or release dates are not known.
