MSI Wind laptop available from £320

10in Intel Atom machine available for pre-order

MSI's Wind laptop is available for pre-order from £320.

The Wind, which is expected to use Intel's upcoming 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, is just one of an expected flood of low-cost systems based on the new chip that will be on show at the Computex exhibition in Taipei during June.

While the Atom processor has yet to be released by Intel, online retailer Expansys has begun accepting orders for the UK version of the Wind running either Windows XP Home for £350 or Linux for £320. The laptops are available in three colors: white, black and pink.

The Wind systems available for pre-order on Expansys have a 10in screen with a resolution of 1,024x768 pixels and an LED backlight, which helps reduce power consumption. The system, which weighs roughly 1kg, also ships with 1GB of memory, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a 1.3Mp camera and an 80GB hard drive.

Expansys did not list pricing for a planned version of the Wind that has an 8.9in screen.
