Micro-Star International is currently busy refreshing its C-series multimedia notebook line. But instead of getting through with the update in one fell swoop, the Taiwanese vendor is taking its own sweet time, announcing new notebooks one at a time. While it was the 15.6-inch CX61/CR61 last week, it’s the slightly smaller CR41 this time.
The 14-incher’s royal brown chassis packs a 1366x768 (16:9) LED display, an Ivy Bridge CPU, integrated graphics, up to 8GB of RAM, up to 720GB of hard-drive storage, and a DVD Super Multi optical disc drive. Further, the CR41, whose tapered profile resembles a sports car to MSI, includes Intel 802.11 b/g/n Bluetooth V4.0, two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and HDMI 1.4. Like the CX61/CR61, it too is capable of lasting for as long as 7.5 hours on its 6-cell, 4,400mAh battery.
“The color film print technology gives it character and natural refinement that make it stand out from the crowd,” MSI said in a press release Friday. “The CR41 is the perfect mobile companion when you're enjoying some summer rays.”
