MSI will be among the first to release notebooks based on AMD's ambitious "Brazos" mobile platform, that takes AMD's Fusion accelerated processing units to notebooks, at price points that will strike a sweetspot between performance-crippled netbooks and entry-level notebooks. At the center of MSI's first such notebook, the CR650, is an AMD Fusion E-350 dual-core processor, supported by AMD Mobility Radeon HD 6300 series graphics.
With a screen size of 15.6-inches, the MSI CR650 is a typically sized widescreen notebook with features and product design (styling) very much into notebook domain. It looks to pack several multimedia features such as D-Sub and HDMI video output, high quality HD audio with some enhancement DSPs, a high-definition webcam, and Color Film Print Technology that adds clarity to images close to analog displays such as film projection and CRTs (less pixellation). The Fusion APU combines a dual-core processor with a GPU, and low-latency memory controller. Not much more is known about the CR650 at this point.
