MSI's new luxury laptop goes pigment-free

After trying various colors, the "Crystal Collection" goes with pearl white.


As every laptop maker tries to outdo each other in colors , patterns , and even textures , MSI has decided to zig where the rest are zagging: It's going back to basic white.

The Taiwanese company today is officially introducing its "PR200 Crystal Collection," a luxury laptop most notable for its pearl-white finish and 120 crystals encircling the MSI logo. This blanco edition appears to complete the entire spectrum for MSI, which debuted a black version more than a year ago before going through various other colors and finishes. Inside, it features a 12.1-inch display, an Intel Core 2 Duo chip, 160GB SATA hard drive, a 4-in-1 card reader, 1.3-megapixel Webcam, and even a fingerprint reader, according to Fareastgizmos.

Further evidence that MSI knows its market are the accessories that come with each laptop, which include a matching pearl-white mouse, a 1GB crystal-festooned flash drive, and not one but two leather cases. So take that, Ego .
