Additional details and full specs can be found in the press release below.


The MSI CX600 & CR600: Fashionably Entertaining

MSI has supplemented its classic C series notebook computers with two new 16 inch models, the CX600 & the CR600. Both devices feature wedge-shaped designs with streamlined 45 degree angled edges and optical drive & I/O ports designed with a clean, minimalist style. A distinctive imprint finish on the lid interacts with light to provide ever-changing patterns thanks to MSI’s Color Film Print technology. Inside, the touch pad area is treated with sturdy, scratch resistant material that gives off a luminescent shine and brings classic design and functionality into daily life—ideal for entertainment, learning, and business applications.

Classic Lines & Radiant Shine

The C series CX600 & CR600 trendy design is achieved through MSI's wedge design techniques. Striking 45 degree-angled edges define streamlined contours while the optical drive, I/O ports, fan assembly, and battery configuration are all seamlessly designed into existing space, creating clean lines and a minimalist curved profile. The CX600 & CR600's large 16" display has a thickness of only 3 cm, 20 percent thinner than traditional 16" notebook displays. With 6-cell battery, total weight is merely 2.48 kg. With the introduction of the CX600 & CR600, MSI has ushered in the era of the light and portable 16" notebooks!

The CX600/CR600 external casing benefits from the application of Color Film Print technology, which allows the surface to interact with ambient light, creating vivid visual effects and changing design patterns. Other special features of both models include LED backlight displays, brushed metal touch pad buttons, and a keyboard treated to enhance surface texture and aesthetic qualities, creating a discreet yet high quality feel. In short, both the CX600 and the CR600 are portable fashion statements.
