MSI Wind notebook gets previewed

Written by test

Chile Hardware has the goods

The Wind from MSI has been previewed by Chile Hardware and it looks like MSI is ready to go as soon as Intel gives the word, which will be during Computex in Taiwan early next month.

The preview doesn't cover much we didn't already know, but they've got some pictures of the Wind up and running with Windows XP SP2. They've also run SuperPi on it and it finished in 4min 17.4sec, which isn't amazing, but the 1.6GHz N270 Atom processor isn't expected to be a high-performance CPU.

Chile Hardware also noted that watching YouTube loaded the CPU at about 50 percent, which means that you can forget about playing HD content on an Atom-powered system.

MSI is using a wireless chipset from Atheros and the wired Ethernet controller comes from Realtek. The hard drive appears to be from Western Digital.
