MSI's Wind Wii-looking desktop pictured

Looks Wii-ish and specd


VR-Zone has gotten its hands on what appears to be some exclusive pictures of MSI's upcoming Wind PC, not the notebook. It's mostly white with some blue accents and we can't say that we find it very visually appealing, although it's also meant to be available in black and maybe even pink.

The hardware consists of a passively cooled 1.6GHz Atom processor, the 945GC chipset, 1GB of DDR2 533MHz memory and a 160GB hard drive. Other features includes a slot loaded optical drive, Gigabit Ethernet, a front-mounted memory card reader and 7.1-channel audio.

Interestingly, the VR-Zone also mentions that it has an internal Compact Flash slot which allows you to install the OS on a suitable memory card for reduced power usage and possibly faster boot times. It's also meant to have an internal mini -PCIe x1 slot for either a WiFi or TV-tuner card option.

It will also use an external 65W power brick and this helps the Wind PC to produce less than 30 dBA. The whole system should measure 215x300x70mm (WxDxH).

You can find the pictures and some more information here.
