MSI Wind Pre-Order

Online store eXpansys today put up pre-orders for the Wind, MSI's rival to the ASUS Eee PC. Elaborating on early specs published last month for the system, the store confirms that the launch edition of the 10-inch notebook will run on a comparatively quick 1.6GHz Atom and features that aren't often present in smaller notebooks, such as a physically larger 80GB hard drive, a 1.3-megapixel webcam built into the lid, and Bluetooth.

The Internet reseller lists its version of the Wind as carrying 1GB of RAM and shipping with Windows XP. Versions in black, pink, and white will be available for the official June launch for $610, though a Linux version should also be available at the same time and will likely drop the price to below $600. MSI has yet to say when it intends to ship the Wind directly to the US. [via UMPC Portal]
