Netbook purveyor MSI today launched its Wind Top AE1900, a nettop (as in, desktop with netbook innards) that shows a little white, a little glass, and suspiciously, a considerable dose of Apple-styled class.
Rhyming aside, this machine could be a great little kiosk or thin client:
- An 18.5-in. WSXGA 16:9 LCD display with 160 degrees of horizontally-wide range, 5 milliseconds (Tr+Tf) response time and 1000:1 and 250 cd/? in brightness
- Intel Atom 230 Processor with Intel 945GC+ICH7 chipset
- 2GB DDR2 533 MHz RAM
- 160GB SATA HDD
- Super-multi DVD drive
- Touch-screen support
- 1.3 megapixel camera
- 2 speakers, HD audio
- Low energy (just 45 watts!)
- Low noise ("will never exceed 26 decibels")
- 802.11 b/g/n wireless
- Four-in-one card reader (SD,MMC,MS,XD), 4 USB 2.0, 1 RJ-45, 1 fax/modem, line in/out
No word on pricing or availability, but if the netbook trend is any indication, this machine must have a three digit price tag.
