You can add Amazon to the (admittedly short) list of stores that has posted a product page for the MSI Wind. Just like the MWAVE product page, Amazon’s page doesn’t let you preorder the computer, which is due out in the US on June 16th. You can, however sign up to be notified by email when the product is actually available for purchase.

It looks like you’ll be able to order either the $399 Linux model or the $499 Windows XP version from Amazon. Keep in mind, that extra $100 gets you a lot more than Windows. You also get 1GB of RAM (instead of 512MB), and a 6-cell battery instead of a 3-cell battery. I believe the $499 model also comes with Bluetooth, which the $399 version lacks.

Thanks FDAMAN!

  1. I would rather have the Linux model, but with the 6 cell battery. Bluetooth is not important to me either. Can I get a credit for the unused Windows license?

    1. Not easily. I have heard of folks arguing their way into getting one. But
      the Linux version won’t be available on June 16th anyway. MSI has said they
      will release the Windows XP model first with the Linux version following
      later this summer. Perhaps by that time they’ll have decided to offer a 6
      cell battery upgrade. Or even more likely, you might be able to find a cheap
      6 cell battery on eBay.
