MSI unveils the Wind PC
The Eee PC made by Asus was a big hit due to the cheap price, small dimensions, and overall performance. In less than a year it got upgraded and the “soon to be released” version – 900 – is considered a top-notch UMPC.
With all the success, it was only a matter of time until other companies started copying the plan and creating their own products. That is what happened with MSI, which has announced the Wind notebook.
One of the big differences when comparing each device is the screen size. While the Eee model goes for the tiny screen of 7-inches, the MSI Wind offers two options: 8.9-inch or 10-inch monitor, with 1024×600 as the resolution. In the end, both versions of the Wind are bigger than the current Eee PC, that is, in terms of screen size.
Other features include 1GB of RAM memory, a hard-drive with 80GB of storage capacity, Windows XP as the Operative System, and lastly, a mere weight of (almost) 1Kg.
The MSI Wind is suppose to have an excellent battery life, which adds up to 7 hours. As for the price, it can go from €300 to €700 – it all depends on the configuration you pick. The release date is set for June.
