MSI revamps and announces Wind DE200 Nettop

Holds more than a few surprises

 


MSI has also been keeping busy as the company announced yet another product, but this time they've got a couple of surprises in store. MSI showcased MSI Wind Box DE200 at Cebit, but it has since been completely redesigned.

This device was initially going to run Celeron M550 CPU at 2GHz and GeForce 9400M video card but MSI has in the meantime dumped Nvidia in favor of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4350, and swapped the Celeron M550 for an Atom N230 1.6GHz. The latter option was probably a result of trying to keep the costs down while at the same time improving the thermals.

While the sample from Cebit had 2GB of memory, the new DE200 has only 1GB and MSI dumped the BluRay optical drive as well, again probably for the cost. It runs on Intel’s old man 945GC + ICH7 and comes with 3.5’’ 160GB HDD, 802.11b/g/n, HDMI/VGA outs and Windows XP instead of initially planned Vista OS.

It will be available in red, blue, white and black when it launches, but more on that when Computex starts.

You can check out the picture of this device here.
