MSI WindBox Computerizes Any Monitor

By Evan Ackerman

What happens if you rip the battery and LCD off of an MSI Wind netbook? You get a damn skinny little computer, that’s what. Skinny enough, in fact, to be bolted onto the back of any VESA-mount monitor and turn it into a flat little computer. The “WindBox,” as it’s called, has pretty much the exact same specs as the netbook: 1.6 gHz Atom, 1 gig ram, 160 gig HD, WiFi, Windows XP, 3 USB ports, an SD slot, and a VGA out which you’d presumably just plug straight into the back of the monitor. Hook up a wireless keyboard and mouse, and you’re good to go.

If you’ve got any spare LCDs lying around (if not, they’re a dime a dozen on Craigslist), the WindBox could be a quick and easy way to set up a dedicated multimedia system, especially if you duct taped a couple extra USB HDs back there too. And for only $250, it’s nearly as cheap as one of those crappy WiFi enabled digital picture frames. It’s just too bad that for the moment, you’ll have to go to France to pick one up.
