A Mini-Laptop Operates With a TV

MSI, best known for its Wind netbook, a thin and light laptop, is releasing the WindBox, a tiny computer that can literally attach to the back of a monitor or television, completely out of sight.

The WindBox will cost about $250 when it arrives in the United States this spring. It will run an Intel Atom processor at 1.6 gigahertz and includes an Intel graphics processor for video and photo playback. It contains 1 gigabyte of RAM and a standard SATA drive port for hard disk expansion. It also has a 3-in-1 card reader and supports wired and wireless networking.

While the WindBox is intended for more industrial applications — digital signs, for example — the device is small enough and powerful enough to run as a media server behind a TV or computer monitor. Because it runs a less powerful processor, it has no fan and is just 10 inches long and about 1 inch thick.

It might not be powerful enough to run the latest version of Vista, but this mini-PC is ideally suited for situations when you want a versatile PC in a small space. JOHN
