MSI have just announced a new Wind Box nettop which is available with an optional Blu-ray player. I think MSI has been smart with the MSI Wind Box DE200, seeing that more and more people are wanting to use nettops as a HTPC (home theater PC / media player), as they are small, quiet and use little power.
The MSI Wind Box DE200 takes this idea even further by adding an
optional built in blu-ray drive, making the MSI DE200 a great HTPC and blu-ray player in one small unit. (external blu-ray drive available).
MSI are currently listing the Intel Celeron M 550 2GHz CPU as featured, but we assume there will be other CPU options included. Powered by ATI Radeon HD 4350 graphics the MSI Wind Box DE200 has plenty of power and hardware acceleration to decode full HD and blu-ray content.
1GB of DDR2 RAM, a 160GB hard drive, 802.11n WiFi are featured along with DVI and HDMI outputs, for connecting to a HDTV to deliver the digital images and audio. There is also a multicard reader, audio in and out, along with USB 2.0 ports and Ethernet.
Windows Vista Home Premium is included, which features Windows Media Center, which is great for media content. The MSI Wind Box DE200 will be great as an everyday PC or equally at home as your HTPC or blu-ray player.
Update October 19th: The MSI DE200 is now official, and is available to pre-order from Amazon for $299!
