    MSI's entry to the reinvigorated tablet PC market is the WindPad 100, which gets showcased at the IFA event in Berlin. Unlike tablets such as the Apple iPad, the MSI WindPad 100 is based on the Intel x86 architecture, running Microsoft Windows 7 operating system. The tablet features a multi-touchscreen 10.1" display, and is loaded with connectors in all sides, such as USB 2.0, an SDHC-compatible card reader, front-facing 1.3 megapixel webcam and HDMI to connect to displays and projectors.

    Under its hood is a second-generation Intel Atom Z530 processor, 2 GB of DDR3 memory, and possible HDD/SSD options for storage. Connectivity for the tablet includes USB 2.0, 3G HSDPA, and WiFi b/g/n, though it can be expanded by an optional dock, which lets you convert the tablet to a desktop PC. The dock provides USB 2.0, audio expansion, gigabit Ethernet, D-Sub and HDMI display outputs, apart from doubling up as the tablet's battery-charging cradle.

    2GB might be a bit too low for Win 7, but it's an Atom anyway, can you do anything more than browse porn with it?

    I've had Win7 with 1,5GB RAM on my ACER Aspire One and it was working just fine.

    2 gb DDR3 is great... most netbooks work OK with 1gb DDR2 and work great with 2gb DDR2

    Looks good... for now, let's see how well it will stand up to scrutiny from the ever more demanding consumer community - us - once it's in our hands. Judging by the specs alone is.. well, potentially deceptive when it comes to tablet pcs.
