    The latest hardware for high definition viewing: The CR650's cinema-class, 16:9 ratio LED display is ideal for viewing films. In addition to richer colors and distortion-free images, you don't have those annoying black strips at the top and bottom of the screen when viewing HD films. The CR650 laptop also comes equipped with an HD720p webcam to give you rich, smooth, clear pictures when conferencing with friends and family over the Internet. If you like watching HD films on something larger than a computer screen, the CR650's HDMI slot lets you connect to LCD TVs of any size.

    A class act
    Stylish cross-hatch color film print: The cover and the wrist-rest areas of the CR650 are sheathed in MSI's cross-hatch color film print coating with color gradient design for a distinctively elegant look. The lustrous coating protects against scratching and wear, while giving the laptop an extra touch of class. This NB also comes with 45-degree beveled edges, making it all that much more mobile. At 15.6 inches, the CR650 notebook computer with battery tips the scales at only 2.3kg, making it the ideal choice for the entertainment needs for the individual on the go.

    Chiclet keyboard: The CR650 comes equipped with an independent Chiclet keyboard for a good, solid feel when typing. It also helps prevent typos caused by hitting more than one key at a time.

    Shortcuts to shut off power to idle hardware: Located above the CR650's keyboard are five shortcuts. With one click of the mouse, you can eject a DVD, turn off the screen, or turn on the S-Bar, Turbo Battery+, or Cinema Pro, so when you're away from your computer for a few minutes, you can instantly shut off the display, so as to not waste battery power.

    i-Charger: MSI's CR650 laptop also comes with MSI's i-Charger technology which pumps more power through the USB slots, so you can recharge devices up to three times faster. Now, while others sit around waiting for their mobile devices to recharge, you can be using yours.

    Exclusive applications
    Easy Face facial recognition: The MSI CR650 laptop comes equipped with MSI's own facial recognition software which works in concert with the high definition webcam to protect your data biometrically. Easy Face remembers passwords for MSN accounts as well as login passwords for websites and systems and can integrate all passwords for your personal accounts under one lock and key—your unique facial features. It remembers your passwords, so you don't have to.

    Easy Viewer photo manager: The CR650 comes with MSI's Easy Viewer photo management software. Simply touching or sliding a finger on the screen enlarges, reduces, or rotates pictures. Sharing photos with friends and family was never easier or more enjoyable.

    S-Bar: The CR650 laptop not only offers the most powerful hardware available, both its hardware and software were designed with the user in mind. MSI's S-Bar toolbar, located at the top of the screen, consists of shortcuts for major OS programs and hardware as well as MSI's own applications. It allows you to control all system functions, auxiliary programs and applications as well as an array of programs, such as software to save power and boost performance as well as MSI's multimedia software, the webcam, the projector, the wireless, Bluetooth, volume control, screen brightness, and standby mode. Operating multimedia was never easier.

    Actually they are already releasing. The HP DM1Z released two weeks ago and other will be coming out early February. Amazon has a few Fusion based notebooks currently ready to ship.

    The Toshiba one is in Yen. converted to US currency that lappy is only around $170. With export tax and stuff it should retail here for $225ish I think.

    thats a nice price, I really wanted one before leaving the states the acer AO522 on amazon are still unavailable, I'm pissed of OEM only releasing 15.6 laptops with fusion kill the purpose in my opinion they're to expensive and not that portable battery life seems really good though.
