MSI really has no shame. Not content with jumping on the Eee PC bandwagon with its Wind series of netbooks, it's just announced a couple of nettops, inspired by the 15.6-inch Asus Eee Top.
Two versions of the Wind Top will be available here in the UK. The entry-level AE1900 comes with an 18.5-inch touch-scensitive display, a single-core Intel Atom 230 CPU, 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard drive. Later in the year, MSI will release a 22-inch version known as the AE2200, which will sport a dual-core Intel Atom 330 CPU plus -- we believe -- 2GB of RAM and 250GB of storage.
Both models will come with a tray-loading, dual-layer DVD rewriter drive, Gigabit Ethernet and high-speed 802.11n Wi-Fi, plus a four-in-one memory card supporting SD, MMC, MS and xD formats.
MSI will also supply a healthy software package with the Wind Tops. Users can expect MSI EasyFace face-recognition software for secure logins, as well as the finger-friendly MSI Wind Touch interface and a host of productivity software, such as Cyberlink PowerDVD 8.
The AE1900 will be available in April for around £550, while the AE2200 will arrive sometime in June for an as-yet-undisclosed sum of money. We'll have a full review of the AE1900 shortly, but in the meantime, check the pics in our gallery.
