MSI has introduced the CR610, a new 16" laptop built on AMD's upcoming Tigris platform. The machine seems fitting for standard multimedia use, and features a LED-backlit 1366 x 768 HD display, an AMD Athlon II CPU and RS880 chipset with Radeon HD 4200 graphics, up to 4GB of DDR2 800MHz RAM, a choice of 250GB, 320GB and 500GB HDDs, and a DVD burner.
Other specifications include Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, optional Bluetooth connectivity, a 1.3 mega-pixel webcam, an Express Card slot, a four-in-one memory card reader, three USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA port, VGA- and HDMI-out, the usual headphone and mic jacks, and a six-cell battery. The MSI CR610 measures 374 x 247 x 18-30mm -- about 20% thinner than traditional 16" notebooks according to MSI -- and weighs 2.48kg or 5.46lbs.

Naturally, the CR610 will ship with Windows 7, but no details on a price or availability have been announced.
