MSI's WindBox DE200 has undergone some serious changes in the last couple of months. According to the gang over at TechConnect Magazine the new box has shed the Celeron CPU and nVidia graphics and gone for the more traditional "net" hardware of a single core Atom, and 945GC board.
No word on why this has happened but the changes should be the final version and what well will see at its Computex 2009 launch.
In addition to the hardware changes the physical design seems to have been adjusted and is not as sleek as the previous version shown at CeBit.

Seen below in its new form, the nettop seems less sleek than the first iteration but is still quite compact and it no longer uses a Celeron CPU, or an Nvidia GeForce 9400 motherboard, but an Atom 230 (single-core, 1.6GHz) and a 945GC board.
The DE200 also boasts less RAM than the CeBIT version - 1GB, and has an 160GB hard drive, WiFi, Ethernet, D-Sub and HDMI outputs and one of four funky colors - black, white, blue and red. Expect more details, like the release date, next week at Computex.
