Computer maker HCL is bringing the MSI Wind to India in the form of the MiLeap MH 04. Like it’s American and European cousins, the MH 04 packs a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, an 80GB HDD, and a 10.2 inch 1024 x 600 pixel display.
The computer will run Rs. 24,999, which is about $586 US.
The MiLeap MH 04 isn’t HCL’s first leap (sorry) into low cost comuters. The company’s MiLeap S, L, and X series computers, which start at less than $330 appear to be based on the Intel Classmate PC design, with a 900Mhz Intel Celeron CPU and a 7 inch 800 x 480 pixel display. The MiLeap V Series is a bit more exciting. It’s an $820 mini-tablet PC that runs Windows Vista, has a 7 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel touchscreen display.
It looks like the MiLeap MH 04/MSI Wind will be squarely placed in between the company’s low end laptops and it’s higher cost mini-tablet.
