MSI's Eee-like Wind notebook pictured

Low-cost Atom 10" LCD notebook

There has been plenty of talk of MSI's upcoming potential Eee PC killer and finally some details are starting to emerge through the cracks.

 


During CeBIT, MSI showed off its tentatively named Wind low-cost notebook. It includes a 10" LCD which ups the Eee's best of 9 inches and will use Intel's low power consuming Atom processor from 1GHz to 1.6GHz and each notebook will come with a minimum of 1GB of DDR2 RAM.

 

It will be fitted with a standard 2.5" notebook hard drive but reports suggest that an SSD option will be available if you are willing to spend the extra money.

 

It will come with a 6-cell battery which is said to provide 6 - 7 hours of battery life and will come preinstalled with Linux with a Windows operating system a later option.

 

If the reports we are seeing are correct, it is said to sell from about $450 USD all the way up to the high-end configured model, which will set you back a little over $1,000 USD, and of course takes it right out of the low-cost notebook market.
