MSI Announces WindBox III – Intel Dual Core ULV, Fanless Nettop

MSI has just announced the WindBox III – a fanless nettop powered by Intel’s Core 2 Duo processors found on the last generation of thin and light notebooks. No mention of any discrete graphics such as Nvidia ION so I’m pretty sure it’s just GMA 4500M HD graphics. At least it’s 1080p HD video capable.

 

There’s 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 2x mini-PCIe slots on the inside, of which is apparently easily accessible. For ports – 6x USB 2.0, 2x serial ports, DVI, HDMI, 2x LAN. Vesa stand included.

Hmmm. I have not seen any fanless ULV based nettops that are cheap and I doubt this one would be either. No mention of price or any kind of release schedule. The inclusion of serial and multiple LAN ports makes me doubt this is for the average consumer.
