MSI unveils dual-core Wind D130 nettop

The nettop market has gotten just a little bit bigger. MSI has announced the Wind D130, a new nettop that packs both a dual-core Atom processor and an optical drive, making it a little closer to a full-blown desktop than other nettops out there.

MSI says the Wind D130 has a 1.6GHz Atom 330 processor, 2GB of DDR2 memory, a DVD burner, 7.1-channel audio, and passive cooling for both the processor and chipset. Photos of the machine still show a fan at the back, however, and MSI quotes noise output of 30dB—"quieter than a library," it claims. The fan probably doesn’t need to spin very fast, since MSI also mentions that power draw under "full speed operation" is only 35W.

Otherwise, MSI brags for a whole paragraph about how the Wind D130 "exudes a full, simple Nordic style." That look apparently comes from the machine’s body, which is made of matte black metal. Maybe the MSI folks really like those 1980s Volvos.

The case has space for a single 3.5″ sata drive and it also has a CF slot attached to the IDE controller internally. At least the single core one does.

It works!

Somewhere since third grade, though, I’ve stopped drawing in the crocodile’s eyes and teeth. 😉

So, you have to assemble it yourself out of the box, and it’s always missing a few key parts? :p

ROR. The “croc” is how I was taught that in 3rd grade (age 8-9), and I still remember it that way to this day.

The crocodile eats the larger number, so the “open mouth” of the symbol points towards the larger number. You want $500 to be the bigger number, so the open end should point towards it, as in cost < $500

I don’t think so man, looks like your asking for a value greater than 500 to me.

repeat after me: The crocodile eats the larger number.

( I used ‘>’ symbol, followed with the number. Therefore, the open-end of the ‘>’ was pointed /[
