With AMD E-450 APU
MSI has rolled out a new notebook powered by AMD's E-450 APU, the CR430. As part of MSI's Classic notebook series the new notebook should have a rather affordable price tag and with a 14-inch screen it might have a perspective future on retail/e-tail shelves.

As noted, the new CR430 features AMD's E-450 APU with two Bobcat cores ticking at 1.65GHz that are paired up with Radeon HD 6320 graphics part. The rest of the spec includes a 14-inch LED-backlit 1366x768 screen, up to 640GB of HDD space, DVD Super Multi optical drive, 802.11bgn WiFi, Gigabit LAN, HD 720p webcam, one optional USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 port, HDMI and VGA outputs and a 6-cell 4400mAh battery.
The new 14-incher measures 344.4x221x28mm and weighs in at around 2.2kg. It will feature MSI's ECO engine that should improve the battery life.
Unfortunately, the price hasn't been announced but we'll keep an eye out for it as it should hit retail/e-tail shelves pretty soon.
