MSI shipping new CR-series notebooks stateside

By on
MSI has begun shipping a handful of Arrandale-based notebooks stateside, including three iterations of the 15.6-inch CR620 line. All models come with Windows 7 Home Premium, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, VGA and HDMI-out, three USB ports, an ExpressCard slot, a four-in-one card reader, a six-cell battery, and a three-year warranty.

The systems have few differences elsewhere, too. The CR620-030US is cheapest at $650 and features a 15.6-inch 720p display, an Intel Core i3-330M processor and GMA HD graphics, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, a 320GB HDD, and a DVD burner. For $730, the CR620-033US has a Blu-ray reader instead, and at $750 the CR620-031US packs a Core i5-430M and 500GB of storage (no Blu-ray, though).

The company is also offering the CR600-234US, which carries older hardware and a lighter price tag of $530. Specifications include a 16-inch 720p display, an Intel Pentium Dual Core T4500, 3GB of DDR2 RAM, Nvidia GeForce 8200MG graphics, and the same connectivity options as its snazzier counterparts.
