For the second time this week, MSI has launched another Classic series laptop with discrete graphics, the latest of which sports an ATI Mobility Radeon HD545v graphics card with 512MB of dedicated video memory. The new CX500DX also boasts a "theater-class" 15.6-inch 16:9 LED backlit display and 45-degree beveled edges, if you're into that sort of thing.

"MSI meticulously crafted the edges of the CX500DX, giving it the beveled edges that characterize our C series notebook computers," said Sam Chern, Marketing Director, MSI. "In addition, the body is sheathed in MSI's exclusive Color Film Print, exuding layers of color which shift with changes in lighting. The resulting shimmering surface gives the CX500DX a classy, unassuming, and stylishness taste and puts it in a class all its own."

Graceful aesthetics aside, the CX500DX comes configured with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, up to 4GB of DDR2 800/667MHz memory, 250/320/500GB SATA hard drive, DVD burner, 4-in-1 memory card reader, three USB 3.0 ports, VGA, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, 1.3MP webcam, and a 6-cell battery.

MSI has not yet set a price or ship date.
