MSI launches CR400, the first model in the new “Classic” notebook series

MSI-CR400MSI has announced the launch of its new “Classic” notebook series! Reflecting MSI’s corporate philosophy of “Insist on the best,” the Classic series embodies exquisite craftsmanship and outstanding industrial design. The models that make up the series include the 14-inch CR400, the 16-inch CX600 and CR600, and the 17.3-inch CX700 and CR700. The first model in the series – the 14-inch CR400 – features a uni-body design with 45-degree angled edges, which significantly enhance both the visual and tactile appeal of the product. The Classic series really does radiate timeless classic elegance!

A classic hi-tech, user-friendly design

The use of MSI-developed CFM (Color Film Print) technology gives the CR400 a crystalline radiance. When the light falls on the laptop from different angles, new patterns appear, giving the product a classic low-key elegance perfectly suited to fashionable lifestyles! Although the CR400 features a large (14-inch) display and 6-cell large-capacity battery, it weighs only 2 kg. This lightweight, easy-to-carry notebook PC offers first-class mobility!


The CR400’s keyboard makes use of MSI’s unique EDS (Ergonomic De-Stress) technology. Tests have shown that the highly sensitive, responsive EDS keyboard can significantly reduce the strain on the user’s fingers. With the CR400, users can enjoy both classic elegance and the latest in high technology!

Outstanding multimedia and audiovisual capabilities

The CR400 uses the latest GeForce 8200M G graphics processing unit (GPU), together with a 14-inch, high-resolution display with 16:9 (movie theater class) aspect ratio and LED backlight. Besides providing high-quality display performance, the energy-saving LED backlight design also saves on power consumption, making for longer battery life between charges. The outstanding brightness, color saturation and color reproduction that the CR400 provides ensures maximum multimedia enjoyment, whether you are watching a movie or viewing photos on your laptop.


Highly efficient, real-time communication no matter where you are

The MSI CR400 comes with a built-in high-resolution webcam and microphone to facilitate efficient, real-time communication. It supports 802.11 b/g/n high-speed WLAN, and incorporates a Bluetooth V2.0 + EDR module, which provides a three-fold improvement in data rate. No matter where you are, the CR400 makes it easy for you to stay in touch with friends and family all over the world! MSI’s unique streamlined video recording function means you can also share video footage of every aspect of your life!

An ultra-smart ECO energy-saving solution

The new CR400 features ECO Engine technology that is exclusive to MSI. The ECO Engine makes it easy to switch between entertainment, presentation, word processing and energy-saving modes, depending on what you need to use the notebook PC for at any given time. This feature makes for a significant improvement in energy use efficiency. With MSI’s unique new easy-to-use keyboard design, switching between ECO, Bluetooth and Wireless modes is very straightforward. The CR400 also features special function keys for controlling brightness and volume, which are integrated with the 4-way scroll button to make it easier and more convenient for users to adjust brightness and sound!
