The MSI Wind is one of the most hotly anticipated next generation low-cost ultraportables. Like the Eee PC, the Wind will be small, light-weight, and far cheaper than old school ultraportables. But unlike the current generation Eee PCs, the MSI Wind will have a 10 inch screen, an 80GB hard drive, and a 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor.

And now we finally know how much the computer will cost. Online retailer Expansys has put up preorder pages for versions of the MSI Wind running Linux and Windows XP. The Linux mode will set you back $560, while the XP version will cost $610.

While those prices make the Wind a bit higher than the $549 Eee PC 900, the Wind will have a larger screen (with the same 1024 x 600 pixel resolution as the Eee PC 900’s 9 inch display) and Intel’s newest power-saving processor which should improve both performance and battery life.
