Averatec To Launch MSI Wind Looking Mini-Notebook

Averatec might be working on a nameless mini-notebook but it sure looks a heck of a lot like the MSI Wind. The Gadgetress over at the Orange Country Register is reporting that Korean Averatec is going to bring to market an Intel Atom-powered 10-inch netbook with a 120GB hard drive. There doesn’t seem to be any more details at the moment, but I just had to state that from the pictures the Averatec system make it look exactly like the MSI Wind. Call me Nancy Drew, but the evidence just adds up. The LED lights are on the right hand of the palm rest (same place as the Wind), the touchpad bar is solid (just like the Wind’s) and the VGA out port is colored blue (just like the Wind’s). Oh and the keyboard appears to be the exact same size. Need I say more? It doesn’t surprise me that MSI is licensing its hardware to other U.S. based OEMS. In fact, another company will be bringing the Wind to market under another brand in the coming weeks. All I have to say is thank goodness! Maybe our dear readers will finally be able to get their hands on the 10-inch netbook that has been so hard to get, particularly with a 6-cell battery.

    It is not surprising that the success of the Asus Eee PCs has created a market for cheap mini-laptops, but is this a fad, or will it be a trend that will change the laptop market forever?
