MSI Hitting All-In-One Market
 
Much like the launch of the netbook market, MSI has been quick to follow Asus' announcement of the Eee Top with word of an Atom-based all-in-one system of their own.  Bearing the Wind Neton monikor, MSI's offering will come in three varieties.
 
Two Wind Neton models – M16 with a 15.6-inch panel and M19 with an 18.5-inch panel – will adopt the Intel Atom 270 processor and 945GSE chipset, and will also features 1GB DDR2 memory, 160GB hard drive, a slim-type optical drive and either Windows XP or Linux. The M16 will be priced around US$399 while the M19 will be priced around US$499. MSI is also evaluating a plan to adopt dual-core Atom processors for the PCs.

The company's M22 will have a higher performance, as it will feature either an Intel dual-core or quad-core mobile CPU, GS45 chipset and a and a 21.5-inch panel. The device will also support H.264 and VC1 hardware decoding, an optional Blu-ray drive and touch screen control. The M22 will be priced between US$599-799 based on the specifications (not including the price of Blu-ray drives).
 
MSI's Wind Neton line is expected to start appearing in January of next year.
 
Asus started a major trend with their Eee PC, sparking the beginning of the rapidly growing netbook market.  Have they done the same with their all-in-one solution?

lmao €275 vs £259.

For a new line of cpu, I dont think the prices are that crazy. Sure they cost 'alot', but I can remember Q9400 & Q6600 when they hit the scene.

Yeah, the CPU's aren't that expensive. The problem is that the motherboards are 250 (euro, the gigabyte board) at least if you want to overclock.

And all what Intel did with the i7 prices is replacing the currency sign -.- The mrsp for america was $289, british is 259 and europe €275 :/ When converted to dollars the british are quite screwed :P

So are the people in europe, btw
