WindBox shows up on MSI's website

The name has changed from the Wind NetBOX to somply WindBox, although it's still powered by a single core Atom N270 at 1.6GHz and as this is a mobile Atom processors it's paired up with the 945GSE chipset. The WindBox has a single SO-DIMM slot and it should be possible to upgrade the 1GB module to 2GB, despite MSI saying that the system is limited to 1GB.

 

Other features as mentioned in our previous post includes a D-sub connector, three USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet port for the built in 10/100Mbit networking, a memory card reader and headphone and mic jacks. Internally there's also a mini-PCIe slot and a single SATA connector. The system is limited to using a 2.5in hard drive due to its small size.
