One of the things that always bothered me about gaming mainboards was that most of them could only support multiple video cards from one brand, and all boards require the same type of card. That means that if you had a NVIDIA 9800 GTX sitting around when you got your new GTX 280 that 9800 GTX was no good to you.
MSI have announced the release of their latest long-running netbook, the Wind U110 Eco. They're a little behind - after all, Amazon started selling the netbook last week, and at $30 less than MSI's $429.99 MRSP - but we'll let it slide since the U110 Eco manages to squeeze up to 15 hours of runtime from its 9-cell battery.
MSI has been launching lots of new notebooks over the last few days and today the company has announced a new notebook called the X410. The X410 is a new addition to the X-Slim 14-inch notebook family. The thin little notebook promises good performance with the latest AMD ultrathin platform.

The U110 Eco packs a 1.6GHz Z530 processor with 1GB of RAM and a 160GB hard-drive, and has a 1,024 x 600 LED backlit display.
MSI is probably best known in America for its Wind netbook and Wind Top all-in-one computers. The firm also makes lots of other notebooks including the Wind U210 with a 12.1-inch screen and a 250GB HDD.
It's been a while since we've heard anything of ASUS' ebook reader intentions, but according to DigiTimes the company's CEO, Jerry Shen, has confirmed that they plan to have a device on the market by the end of 2009 at the earliest. Slotting into the company's Eee brand of low-priced consumer electronic devices, Shen failed to give suggestions of specifications or pricing for the upcoming reader.
MSI US announced the next generation of all-in-one computing today, the desktop PC called the Wind Top AE2010.

MSI have confirmed previous leaks that they are developing a convertible touchscreen netbook that will run Windows 7 on Intel's upcoming Pine Trail chipset.

MSI have tipped Pine Trail's official debut as taking place at CES 2010, while Intel maintain that the new Atom processors are on course for a late-2009 release.
