MSI’s latest tiny desktop computer measures about 4.5″ x 4.4″ x 1.7″ (or less) and supports Intel Core i3, Core i5, and Core i7 Kaby Lake-U series processor options.
The MSI Cubi 2 is small enough to attach to the back of a display with a VESA mount, and the system supports up to two displays, thanks to Mini DisplayPort and HDMI outputs.
The little desktop should be available globally soon.
MSI’s Cubi 2 desktop also features three full-sized USB 3.1 ports, a USB 3.1 Type-C port, separate mic and headphone jacks, and an Ethernet port.
It comes in two configurations: there’s a model with just enough room for an M.2 solid state drive, and a slightly bigger model with room for M.2 storage and a 2.5 inch hard drive or SSD.
The SSD-only option measures 1.3″ thick and weighs about 14 ounces, while the model with a hard drive is 1.7″ thick and 1.1 pounds.
Interestingly, the Cubi 2 is launching after the Cubi 2 Plus, which MSI unveiled earlier this year. That model is a little larger, but features a socketed motherboard, which means the rpocessor can be upgraded.
Barebones Cubi 2 Plus models are already available for purchase for around $210.
