Touchscreen and Win 7
MSI is planning to release its first Pine Trail Atom-based netbook at CES, and it will also include a touchscreen to make things a bit more interesting.
MSI's U.S. rep Andy Tung says the new Atom provides better graphics performance and a 20 percent drop in power consumption. The biggest difference, however, is its reduced TDP, which will allow vendors to come up with fanless designs.
MSI is hoping that it will be the first company to ship Pine Trail products, but it's still not clear when Intel will start shipping the new platform, although it hopes to see Pine Trail products in retail by the end of the year.
