MSI Wind Nettop CS120
MSI on Thursday afternoon brought the Wind Nettop CS120 to the US. The mini desktop is slightly slower than the CS100, opting for a single-core 1.6GHz Atom 230 instead of the dual-core Atom 330, but is a complete system with 1GB of built-in memory, a 160GB hard drive and 802.11g Wi-Fi. It's also one of the few nettops to have a built-in DVD burner instead of relying on USB storage or the network.
The PC has expansion room for 2GB of total memory as well as a CF card slot, 6 total USB ports, Ethernet in and VGA out; Windows XP Home is its only operating system choice. MSI doesn't mention pricing or specific release dates for the new Wind desktop, though the system has already shown up in a Newegg listing for $300.
