MSI Windbox: VESA-mounted fanless nettop

MSI have announced their rival to the ASUS Eee Box, the predictably named MSI Windbox.  A 300 x 240 x 65mm slab, the fanless Windbox contains a 1.6GHz N270 Intel Atom processor, 1GB or 2GB of RAM, either 160GB or 250GB hard-drive, WiFi b/g and gigabit ethernet.  While MSI demonstrated it with a desk-stand, it's actually intended to be fixed to the VESA mount on the back of a flat-panel monitor.

Princeton DN-503AH-PDC five-drive 5TB NAS

Princeton DN-503AH-PDC five-drive 5TB NAS

It's not currently bigger than Buffalo's TeraStation Pro, but with a little fettling the Princeton DN-503AH-PDC NAS certainly could be.  Packing five 1TB hard-drives, it has a total capacity of 5TB; that's one down on the 6TB TeraStation Pro, but since that NAS has only four bays to the Princeton's five it has to rely on larger 1.5TB HDDs.  Switch the DN-503AH-PDC's discs for 1.5TB versions and you'd have 7.5TB capacity, which is perhaps the largest we've seen on a small-business backup device.
