MSI Wind Netons coming

Desktop and notebook computer maker MSI recently unveiled a new range of small-footprint all-in-one PCs, called the Wind Neton, in China. The Wind Neton range should compete against the ASUS Eee Top as well as the iMac and comprises the 22-inch M22, 18.5-inch M19 and 15.6-inch M16. Processing power will come from Intel's Atom CPU, with a dual-core 1.6GHz Atom 330 in some models. Any of the three nettops will be available with touchscreen functionality for the M16 and M19's 1366x768 screen or the M22's 1920x1080 display. In a rare move for Atom-based systems, the M22 also has an optional Blu-ray drive.

The M16's design puts the hardware components in a box attached below the monitor with a couple of hinges, while the M19's hard parts are integrated into the monitor housing. The M16 ships with a DVD burner. Buyers will be able to order a TV tuner, with the M22 even being offered with a remote control.

All single-core Atom models will have Windows XP pre-loaded onto their hard drives, with the dual-core Atom versions getting Vista. Connections on the Netons include two or three USB 2.0 ports, depending on the model, an Ethernet port, a VGA connection, a multi-memory card reader and the prerequisite audio in and out and PS/2 ports for the mouse and keyboard.

Due for a first quarter 2009 launch, the M19 would be the first to arrive in January 2009 with prices starting at $499, with the M16 out in February with a $399 price. The M22 will arrive in March 2009, with prices starting at $799. [via Slashgear]
