If MSI Cubi is a Mini PC low-cost Intel Broadwell U-directed to the consumer market, MSI windbox is a compact desktop PC designed for digital signage, kiosks, security systems and other commercial applications but also suited as a home theater home . The Taiwanese company is dedicated to these small PC for years now, so that the first windbox III was launched back in 2009, when these devices fell into the category of “nettop”.
MSI windbox III Advanced MS-9A75 is the latest model in the series, featuring an Intel Broadwell much more powerful and efficient Intel Core 2 Duo chip installed in the windbox of the first generation. The design does not change much: we find an all-black polycarbonate rather thin that integrates an Intel-based compact (Mini-ITX) and a passive cooling system. Thus, despite the intended use that forced him to stay on for hours MSI windbox III Advanced MS-9A75 is a fanless PC.
Supports Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7 and Celeron fifth generation ULV (ultra-low-voltage) with reduced TDP, Intel HD 5000 graphics, up to 16GB of DDR3 RAM and hard drives and two 2.5-inch slot mini-PCIe for extra storage or other hardware. On board, there are two Gigabit Ethernet ports, two DisplayPort and a DVI port to connect up to three monitors, several USB 3.0, COM and audio ports. At the moment we do not know the price and availability on the market, but one of the first models in circulation will be the SKU with Intel Core i5-5200U.
