- MSI introduces new SFF PC -- MEGA PC 865 PRO

MSI have just introduced a new member to their MEGA PC series of entertainment SFF systems. Aimed primarily at HTPC users, The "MEGA PC 865 PRO" gets a fancy new brushed aluminium look with black trim alongside a facelift. The system sports Intel's still more then sufficient 865G chipset with new audio features, a wireless 802.11g card, support for FM radio and TV, and the best bit? an "instant-on" DVD player! (Unlike earlier models which required you to be in windows just like any other PC). This one's definitely going onto my shopping list. Further details including product specs over at MSI's website.


Micro-Star International (MSI) recently announced its latest small-form-factor (SFF) PC, the MEGA PC 865 Pro, a consumer oriented multimedia SFF PC. MSI is also looking to expand its own-brand business by extending the MEGA brand to new products such as notebooks, MP3 players and portable video players.


The MEGA PC 865 Pro will be targeted to mainstream users and aims to take advantage of the convergence of PC and consumer electronics devices. Based on the Intel 865G chipset, the system features an instant-on DVD player, as well as support for FM radio and TV. MSI has also added new audio features to the MEGA PC 865 Pro, as well as equipping it with a wireless 802.11g card.
