MSI Wind Nettop CS120: superfrugal plus DVD burner

MSI have announced a new, eco-friendly version of their Wind Nettop, the MSI Wind Nettop CS120.  The CS120 measures just 11.1 x 9.45 x 2.56 inches but manages to include a slot-load DVD burner, Intel Atom 230 1.6GHz processor, 160GB hard-drive and 1GB of memory (maximum 2GB). 


There's also 7.1-channel HD sound output, integrated WiFi and a multiformat card reader, plus six USB 2.0 ports, ethernet, audio in/out and a VGA out.  Most impressively, though, is the 35W power consumption at full load, around a 90-percent saving compared to the typical 300W desktop PC.

The MSI Wind Nettop CS120 will be available with an MRSP of $319.99.  You'll be able to find it at NewEgg, Amazon, Mwave and J&R.
