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.

HP mini-Q nettop with dual-core Atom 330 CPU

HP mini-Q nettop with dual-core Atom 330 CPU

HP should be ashamed of themselves: this poor model (who isn't really dressed appropriately, considering it's almost December) is so excited by the new HP mini-Q nettop that she's entirely failed to notice the ominous red sponge-man creeping up behind her.  I'm no lawyer but that's a sexual misconduct lawsuit just waiting to happen.  Still, you can sort of see why she's happy: the mini-Q 2030 uses Intel's dual-core Atom 330 processor together with 2GB of DDR2 RAM, a 160GB 7,200rpm SATA hard-drive and a dual-layer DVD burner.

ASUS Eee Top ET1602 launched

As promised, ASUS have held a glittering launch for the new Eee Top touchscreen all-in-one desktop PC.  Despite having to suffer the indignities of being poked at by models with surprisingly long nails, the Eee Top held up well; Engadget China report that it feels as sturdy as most other EeePC machines, and that the touchscreen is responsive and doesn't require more than the most casual of grazes.

ASUS Eee Top launching Thursday 20th?

January is a long way off, says ASUS (probably; we haven't actually asked them).  Their Eee Top all-in-one PC is set to launch in the US tomorrow, according to CIO, with two versions of the touchscreen nettop up for grabs.  Both have the 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor, run Windows XP and have ASUS' own finger-friendly interface; the ET1603 adds ATI HD3450 graphics and, although this runs contrary to what we've heard previously, a battery for mobile use.

MSI Wind Neton all-in-one nettops: touchscreen & Blu-ray options, coming Q1 2009

The ASUS Eee Top won't have the all-in-one nettop field to itself for much longer: MSI are planning some rival integrated nettops of their own, in the shape of the new MSI Wind Neton range just unveiled in China.  The Neton M22, M19 and M16 have a 22-inch, 18.5-inch and 15.6-inch displays respectively, and are all based on either the single or dual-core Intel Atom CPU.  All have a touchscreen option and the M22 - which has a 1920 x 1080 resolution display - can be specified with a Blu-ray drive.

Qualcomm Kayak 3G-connected low-cost PC reference design

Qualcomm Kayak 3G-connected low-cost PC reference design

Qualcomm have announced the Kayak PC alternative, a low-cost entry level computing device that the company describes as positioned "between desktop PCs, which normally require landlines or separate accessories for connectivity, and internet-capable wireless devices".  Devices built according to the Kayak reference design would be a hybrid of 3G-enabled netbooks and stationary nettops: rather than use hardwired ADSL or cable connections, they would take advantage of high-speed cellular broadband.  Qualcomm envisage future Kayak products as using their Snapdragon platform, but initial devices will rely on the company's Mobile Station Modem MSM7xxx-series chipsets that incorporate both computing and connectivity.
