Shortly after Intel started bringing NUC PCs to market, MSI jumped in with its Cubi mini-PCs. Now, MSI has a hardware refresh on the way, bringing Intel's Kaby Lake processors into these little boxes.
The latest version of MSI's mini-PC isn't too different from the last edition. The most significant change is the addition of the new Kaby Lake CPUs. The updated systems come with three flavors of CPU: Core i3-7100U, Core i5-7200U, and Core i7-7500U.
New processors asside, the system still offers two slots for up to 32GB of RAM and space for both an M.2 SSD and a 2.5" drive. Even the ports and radios are mostly the same, though the Bluetooth, Intel Wireless 802.11a, and USB Type-C ports are all present in their latest incarnations. MSI says that this new refresh would be available by the end of September, but we haven't found any retailers offering it just yet.
