EEE PC Competition - MSI Wind pre-order

The ultra portable laptop MSI Wind, a serious alternative to the EEE PC, showed up again at Expansys. At Amazon there is only a placeholder, no possibility to pre-order it.

>>>UPDATE: it is possible to pre-order the MSI Wind at Amazon, at incredibly low prices.

According to the information given on the Expansys sales pages, the MSI Wind (10-inch display, 80GB hard disk, Atom 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM) will be available starting from July 19th in Europe, July 22nd in USA and Canada and July 25th in Japan.

Respectively for the Linux and Windows XP variants
  • USA (USD): about 563 and 612
  • Canada (CDN): about 601 and 654
  • Japan (Yen): about 60000 and 65000
  • UK (Pounds) : about 318 and 346
  • Germany (Euros) : about 403 and 440
  • France, Finland (Euros) : about 461 and 501
  • Italy (Euros) : about 462 and 502
Please double check prices and availability at Expansys!

I've already announced pre-order availability for the MSI Wind at Expansys, however the product disappeared for a while and is not back.
