MSI Wind at Best Buy

MSI today said that its Wind netbook is shipping to Best Buy, marking one of the first times the portable has been available in a major US retail chain. The netbook ships in just one configuration for the store and comes with Windows XP pre-loaded as well as the necessary 1GB of RAM and a 120GB hard drive; MSI keeps pricing under check by using the stock three-cell battery rather than the larger six-cell pack.

Best Buy's version is otherwise a match for most Wind units and carries a 10-inch display, a 1.6GHz Atom processor and a 1.3-megapixel webcam mounted in the lid. Black and white editions will also be available. The new model will be one of the least expensive in the class and should sell for $399 despite its screen size and storage.
