MSI, the company behind the forthcoming Eee-rival, the Wind, has launched a small form factor PC, new Titan 700, based on the Mini-ITX form factor, normally for business usage.
With a VIA CN700 + 8237R+ chipset, the Titan 700 system comes with a slim DVD burner, as well as 2.5-inch SATA hard drive that claims to effectively reduce the volume and improve the heat dissipation of the chassis.
The Titan 700 series is 3.1 litres in size, or 70 x 185 x 240mm for those whose brains don't work in volume measurements, and can be placed horizontally or vertically.
The Titan 700 is also equipped with Gigabit LAN, I/O ports, USB 2.0, SATA, PS/2 and 5.1-channel audio, providing users with "rich and complete multimedia support".
The MSI Titan 700 series has a 60W power supply module that is energy-efficient, cost-effective, environmental-friendly and quiet too.
