Following the example set by Asus, netbook maker MSI is releasing an all-in-one desktop computer designed with netbook-like specs. The MSI Wind Neton M16, M19, and M22 nettop computers range in size from 15.6 inches to 22 inches, sport single or dual core Intel Atom processors, and run Windows XP or Windows Vista.

While the 15.6 inch model consists of a base connected to a display, the 18.5 inch and 22 inch models are basically just large monitors with all the computer components hidden away in the case. In other words, each is sort of like low end versions of Apple’s iMac.

The 18.5 inch M19 model should be available in January for about $500, while the  15.6 inch M16 will follow in February for $400. Both models will have 1366 x 768 display resolutions. The high end M22 with a 22 inch 1920 x 1080 pixel display will be available in March for $799.

  1. Am I correct in seeing that these have touchscreens and remotes, and that the 22″ has Blu-ray? $800 for a 22″ with all that seems pretty amazing.

    Is the Atom powerful enough for Blu-ray? I’ve had issues with high definition content on my Aspire One.

    1. I don’t know for sure, but, if combined with the right graphics card, I think it’d be doable. After all, if the GPU has hardware video decode for whatever codec blu-ray uses (don’t recall offhand), the the CPU really doesn’t have all that much work to do.
