Cebit 2009: Nvidia's 9400 with Celeron M

While looking at MSI's nettops we noticed one particular specification list on MSI's Wind Box DE200. This little thing can do high definition video and is based on Nvidia's MCP79 chipset.

Instead of the ION's Atom CPU, MSI's Wind Box DE200 features Intel's Celeron M550 CPU working at 2GHz, comes with 2GB of DDR2 memory, 160GB HDD, 802.11n WiFi, has four USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet port, audio jacks and HDMI, as well as a DVI output.

During CeBIT, this little thing was hooked up to a large LCD screen, and MSI is planning to do a Blu-Ray optical drive for it. According to the MSI representatives, this isn't a final design and some things might change, but its nice to know that this can be done, and that MSI is considering it.
