MSI WindPad 110w Tablet

MSI has gone official with its new WindPad 110W tablet computer. This isn’t another Android tablet to throw to the masses in hopes of beating the iPad 2 at its own game. The WindPad 110W is a tablet aimed at the user looking for a portable device that can run Windows and its accompanying applications.

The tablet runs on the AMD Z-01 APU and packs in 4GB of RAM. Storage is handled by a 32GB SSD and the machine has a 10-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 800. The 110W also has a USB port for connecting peripherals and a mini-HDMI port as well.

“Bringing Windows 7 and AMD’s newest generation processor together is a significant step forward for MSI’s tablet line,” noted Andy Tung, vice president of North American sales for MSI. “Our business customers want portability and multimedia entertainment on the go, and the new hardware and latest software gives us the ability to deliver that experience in a tablet form factor.”

The machine will work for corporate users thanks to the Trusted Platform Module that automatically encrypts files and data using BitLocker. The machine has Easy Face software for logging in without typing a password. The tablet also has multi-control navigation that allows you to grip the tablet on both sides and use small finger movements to get around.

“The MSI WindPad 110W tablet featuring the AMD Z-Series APU with unmatched AMD Radeon™ graphics is an exciting new product and a perfect fit for end users that want DirectX® 11 capability and vivid HD media experiences,” said John Byrne, corporate vice president and general manager for Americas Mega Region, AMD. “In addition to its integration with operating systems like Microsoft Windows 7, the AMD 2011 HD Tablet Platform enables enterprise-level security and offers support for HTML 5 and external monitors, enabling crisp graphics for enhanced productivity, streaming video, gaming and other multimedia.”

The tablet also features AMD Radeon HD 6250 graphics, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 2-cell battery. The 110W measures 10.66-inches x 7.20-inches x 0.61-inches and weighs 3.3 pounds. A GPS receiver is also integrated.

The tablet is available now and retails for $599.99.
