MSI has further complimented its Wind NetTop series of mini PCs today with the introduction of their first dual-core mini system, the Wind NetTop D130.
The D130 makes use of Intel's new Atom 330 dual-core processor and has 2GB of DDR2 memory. MSI also managed to squeeze in a Super-multi DVD burner and there is support for up to 7.1 channel surround sound.
Unlike the original single core Atom processors, MSI claim HD playback performance to be very good, but as MSI designed this mini PC with the HTPC user in mind, it's a bit of a shame not to see DVI (or better still, HDMI), with the only resident video output being standard VGA. But if you can get around that, it would be a nice efficient little unit to play your media from.
