Released January, 2009
The Pros:Designed specifically to be mounted - slimmer and more attractive on a monitor than an Eee Box. Passively cooled - no fan, no noise. Powerful enough for the majority of consumers who just use PCs to check e-mail and browse the Internet.
The Cons:Less featured than an Eee Box.
Announced in November 2008 and further revealed in January 2009, the WindBOX is a miniature Atom-powered nettop from MSI. Featuring the standard 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of DDR2 memory, Intel GMA 950 graphics, and 702.11 b/g wireless, the thin form factor and ability to mount the unit to the back of a LCD monitor is what sets the WindBOX apart from the plethora of nettop options already available.
