MSI Wind Box DC110 mini-PC packs Windows 8, Celeron power
MSI’s newest mini-desktop is a PC that’s not much bigger than a DVD drive. But it’s a full-fledged Windows 8 computer with an Intel Sandy Bridge processor, a 2.5 inch drive bay, and support for up to 4GB of RAM.
The computer features 4 USB 2.0 ports, VGA and HDMI ports, S/PDIF, mic and headphone jacks, and Ethernet and WiFi.
The Wind Box DC110 measures 7.6″ x 6″ ” x 1.4″ and weighs just 1.8 pounds.
It has an Intel Celeron 847 dual core processor with Intel HD integrated graphics. While the 1.1 GHz processor isn’t exactly a top-of-the-line chip, it should pack enough power for HD video playback and most basic computing operations.
It’s also a relatively low-power chip: the Celeron 847 was initially designed as a notebook processor and it has a TDP of 17W. In fact the MSI Wind Box DC110 only needs a 40W power supply.
That could make this little desktop a decent choice for a home server, media server, or any other use that would require leaving the PC running 24/7, since it won’t use as much power as most desktop computers.
