First 10" Notebook to Feature the Newest Intel Processor

CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA – May 13, 2008 – MSI Computer, a leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, is ready to clear up some of the questions surrounding the MSI Wind (Wi-Fi Network Device). MSI Computer will offer both Linux and Windows (XP Home Edition) based configurations in June on

The Wind weighs a mere 2.6 lbs, but offers many of the amenities customers would expect from a much larger notebook. Business travelers and students on the go will enjoy the Wind’s comfortable keyboard, which is only 20% smaller than a full size layout, and the 5+ hours of battery life the Windows based units provide. The Wind also features a 1.3M webcam, up to a 1GB of RAM, a 4-in-1 card reader, 3 USB ports, and Bluetooth capabilities with the Windows version.

“With Wind we struck the optimal balance of price, performance, and convenience” said Daniel Wang, General Manager of MSI US. “We designed the Wind to offer mobile consumers all the features of bulkier more expensive notebooks, but with a sleeker lightweight footprint."
