The other day Micro Star International (MSI) launched a couple of new multimedia notebooks the CX61 and the CR61, when we say a couple what this is really is one laptop with two different specs! In fact, it is not even as grand as that because it seems that the only difference between the two laptop is the graphics feature. The CX61 uses the Nvidia GeForce GT640M +2G VRAM and the Nvidia GeForce GT630M +2G VRAM graphics cards, while the CR61 goes with the Intel HD Graphic card option.
As far as we can gather, the rest of the specs and features for both the CX61 and CR61 laptops are as follows; they come the 15.6 inch high definition display 16:9 with a 1366 x 768 of pixel resolutions and a built in HD web camera. They are powered by the latest generation of Intel Third Generation Core i type processors, it supports the Intel HM76 Chipset and will be running on the Microsoft Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium (Windows 8 capable) operating system.
There is up to 8 GB of DDRIII 1333 MHz available in 2 slots (4 GB x 2) and there is a 2.5 inch SATA Hard Disk Drive (HDD) in a choice of size from 500 GB, 640 GB or 720 GB. As well as the integrated DVD Super Multi Optical Disk Drive. As for connectivity, there is a 5-in-1 card reader, HDMI out, D-sub, one standard USB 2.0 port, two fast connecting USB 3.0 ports, Mic-in, Headphone out and RJ-45. While networking is covered by the usual Intel 802.11 b/g/n, 802.11b/g and Bluetooth V4.0.
The machine itself will measure up at 383 mm (W) X 249.5 mm (D) X 32.3 mm to 37.6 mm (H) and it will weigh in at 2.4 kilos with the 6 cell battery pack included that MSI say should be able to offer the user up to 7.5 hours of battery time. At the moment there are no pricing or details on availability, which is a bit of a let down as the price has a lot to do with the whole package.
