MSI WindPad 100W Windows Tablet Ships

 |  |  |  |  |  |  January 29, 2011

The technology world has gone tablet crazy thanks to the iPad and hoards of other Android tablets that are coming soon or already on the market. There are a number of people out there that like the idea of a tablet, but want it to run Windows so their familiar software from home or the office will work on it.


MSI has previously announced the Wind Pad 100W, a tablet that runs Windows 7 Starter. Now reports are coming in that the tablet is available to purchase. If you aren’t familiar with the 100W, it has a 10.1-inch screen with a resolution of 1024 x 600. The machine uses a special “Wind Touch” user interface over the Windows 7 OS to make it more tablet friendly. The CPU inside is an Atom Z530 at 1.6GHz and it has 2GB of RAM. Storage is provided by a 32GB SSD, and the battery promises over six hours. The tablet also has front and rear cameras, mini HDMI out, a SD card reader and WiFi.

It sells for $709 (USD) and sounds like a really expensive netbook minus the keyboard to me.
