Details are fairly light on the specific SKUs MSI will offer, but in general, the CX70 and CR70 will feature:
- DDR3 support up to 1600MHz
- 1366x768 screen resolution
- GeForce 610M, GT620M, GT630M, and GT635 graphics options
- HDMI and VGA output
- 2.5-inch 500GB/640GB/720GB SATA hard drive
- DVD burner
- HDMI 1.4; D-Sub; USB 3.0 x 2; USB 2.0 x 2; Mic/Headphone; GbE LAN; 5-in-1 card reader
- 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi; Bluetooth v4.0
- HD webcam
- 6-cell battery
- Windows 7 Home Premium
The new laptops are part of MSI's Classic series, a breed of stylish notebooks built for general purpose multimedia chores. It is, however, a little odd that the 17.3-inch panels will only support a 1366x768 resolution instead of rolling with Full HD 1080p.
