MSI plans to launch a portable notebook with an Intel Atom processor, an 11.6 inch display, and a fanless design later this year. It’s called the MSI S120, and the folks at Notebook Italia spotted the laptop at the Computex show in Taiwan earlier this month.
On paper, the MSI S120 looks like the company’s answer other low-cost laptops including the Asus EeeBook X205 and the HP Stream 11. But MSI’s laptop has at least one feature you won’t find in those $200 laptops: the company plans to offer a limited number of laptops with 1920 x 1080 pixel IPS displays.
If you don’t get a model with a full HD display though, here’s what you do get:
- 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel TN display
- Intel Atom Z3735F Bay Trail processor
- 2GB of RAM
- 32GB or 64GB of NAND flash storage
- 2MP front-facing camera
- 802.11b/g/n WiFi
- Bluetooth 4.0
- 2 USB 2.0 ports
- microSDHC card slot
- mini HDMI port and headset jack
- 5200 mAh battery
The laptop measures 11.4″ x 7.8″ x 0.6″ and weighs about 2.2 pounds. It’s expected to ship with Windows 10, which means the MSI S120 laptop will probably launch sometime after July 29th (which is when Windows 10 will be released).
