MSI introduces Brazos based WindPad 110W

Written by Fudzilla staff

Windows 7 in 850 grams
MSI has officially launched its second x86 tablet, the Windows 7 based WindPad 110W.

Powered by an AMD Brazos series C-50 APU clocked at 1GHz, the WindPad 110W features 2GB of memory, integrated HD 6250 graphics and impressive connectivity thanks to the AM50 chipset, or fusion controller hub.

The WindPad shipes with 32GB or 64GB of storage and an SD card expansion slot. It also packs WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 EDR, a USB 2.0 port and mini HDMI out. It features a 10.1-inch 1280x800 IPS capacitive touchscreen and it is rather compact considering the spec. Measuring 271x183x15mm and weighing in at under 850 grams, it is somewhat smaller and lighter than the similarly spec’d Acer Iconia W500.

WindPad110W

In a world of Android tablets and iPads, Windows machines with proper x86 processors are few and far between, yet they offer quite a bit more flexibility in terms of software compatibility, although Windows 7 was really not designed with tablets in mind.

The WindPad 110W should sell for $599, which probably means €499 in Euroland.

Hey, first (whatsoever)Pad with interesting features but still no clue what to do with such a piece of hardware.

$599, which more probably means €599 in Euroland :(

Nice MSI! I won't mind Win 7, the good thing about Windows and x86 is that you can upgrade and have enough tools to fix any shortcomings. Was sorry to have seen the HTC Desire issue with Gingerbread, it's on and can be upgraded, it's not on because of some issues, it's on again.

Bignon, it's good as a personal organizer, book reading, web surfing.

@Bl0bb3r:
I see the web surfing that can be really confi with a tablet, but as a book reader, no! And a smartphone would be the better choice as a personal organizer. But I thing you're right about x86 and windows or maybe linux is way more flexible.
