Notebook powered by AMD CPUs
MSI has expanded its line of multimedia notebooks with the new CR430, a 14-inch variant aimed at budget-conscious buyers. The notebook is powered by AMD's dual-core 1.65GHz E-450 processor with Radeon integrated graphics. On the outside, the design offers a chicklet-style keyboard with nickel-plated touchpad keys below a multi-touch trackpad.
The 14-inch display brings 1366x768 resolution, however users can also attach external monitors via HDMI or VGA connections. Other common features include SRS sound enhancement, a 720p webcam, and a six-cell battery.
MSI has yet to announce pricing information or a specific launch date for the CR430.
