MSI's Barebone Products

 At MSI's booth, we saw a steady line-up of barebone systems for system integrators too. Although not your typical hardcore products, these systems are extremely suited for the office and general computing.

 The MSI Blade CX700 is a fanless ruggedized industrial PC that uses a mini-ITX board which comes with a VIA C7/Eden series processor. A simple computer with built-in video and two Gigabit Ethernet ports.

 The Blade GM965 uses the mini-ITX Fuzzy GM965 motherboard which is based on the Intel 965GM chipset - for those who wants something more powerful than the VIA C7.

 The MSI Crystal 945 Touch Panel LCD PC is an all-in-one system based on the Intel 945G/ICH7 chipset. This particular PC supports Pentium 4/D LGA775 processors and up to 2GB dual-channel DDR2 667/800MHz DIMMs. As its name implies, the 17-inch LCD display is touch sensitive, so it can be used without a mouse.

 On the right side of the display, you'll find the optical drive and your typical USB, LAN, PS/2 keyboard/mouse and a multi-card reader.

 The Crystal 19" Touch Panel LCD PC has similar specifications as the Crystal 945, except that it has a larger 19-inch display panel.
