CITY OF INDUSTRY, CA – May 13 - MSI Computer, a
leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, is
ready to clear up some of the questions surrounding the MSI Wind (Wi-Fi Network Device). 
MSI Computer will offer both Linux and Windows (XP Home Edition) based
configurations, for under $500 starting in early June on www.msimobile.com

The Wind weighs a mere 2.6 lbs, but
offers many of the amenities customers would expect from a much larger
notebook.  Business travelers and students on the go will enjoy
the Wind's comfortable keyboard, which is only 20% smaller than a full
size layout, and the 5+ hours of battery life the Windows based units
provide.  The Wind also features a 1.3M webcam, up to a 1GB of
RAM, a 4-in-1 card reader, 3 USB ports, and Bluetooth capabilities with
the Windows version.

"With Wind we struck
the optimal balance of price, performance, and convenience" said Daniel
Wang, General Manager of MSI US. "We designed the Wind to offer mobile
consumers all the features of bulkier more expensive notebooks, but
with a sleeker lightweight footprint and an affordable sub $500 price
point."
