When attendees drop by MSI's booth at the Consumer Electronics Show later this week, they'll be able to see a slew of new and upcoming products: an ultra-slim notebook akin to the MacBook Air, a series of all-in-one Atom-powered desktops, new Wind netbooks, and a dual-core Wind nettop. MSI has posted a short sneak peek at what's in store to get the hype going.
Starting with the (potential) MacBook Air competitor, MSI says its X-Slim 320 notebook will have a 13.4" display with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The machine will be only 0.23-0.77" thick and will tip the scales at 2.87 lbs. MSI doesn't reveal what type of processor the notebook will include, although it notes that with an eight-cell battery, battery life should reach "up to 10 hours."
MSI is also cooking up four different Wind NetOn all-in-one desktops. One will have a 22" display, "advanced AV and entertainment functions," and support for "up to Full HD." (What kind of HD content the system will support is anyone's guess, but we wouldn't be surprised to see some type of discrete graphics processor included.) The other three NetOn systems will have smaller 19" monitors built in, and one of them will have a dual-core Intel Atom CPU.
Along with these, MSI will showcase a Wind U115 Hybrid netbook with both mechanical and solid-state storage, along with a Wind U120 with optional 3.5G and WiMAX readiness. Oh, and expect a small-form-factor Wind CD130 nettop with a dual-core Atom, too.
