Intel’s Core i5 and i3 CPUs have found a new home in MSi’s latest notebook offerings. The CX520 and CR20 Classic Series combine otherwise standard specs and a 15.6-inch 16:9 screen with the powerful cores. Both seem like solid rigs although you’ll likely pass over them in favor of something a bit more flashy.


Along with either the aforementioned CPUs, the systems both utilize the Intel HM55 chipset, up to 8GB of DDR3 800/1066 memory, and either a 250GB, 320GB, or 500GB SATA hard drive. The CX520 however is graced with the ATi Mobility Radeon HD5470 GPU with 1GB of memory, while the CR620 is slumming with an Intel HD Graphic chip. Both have the same 15.6-inch, LED-backlit display with an integrated 1.3MP camera topside along with an HDMI port and 802.11 b/g/n.

No word on pricing or availablity just yet though. Good thing there are plenty of nearly identical other systems available for your buying pleasure.
