MSI Projector PC Beams Those All-Important Word Documents Out At 1080p Resolution

MSI took the humble projector and added the guts of a PC, making—are you ready for this?—THE PROJECTOR PC. Connect it to a keyboard, chuck in a mouse, and beam your Excel on your dog. Or whatever.

In terms of ports, it has a HDMI out, LAN, 4x USB, 3.5mm headphone jack, mic-in, and even a DVD slot on the front. Internally, it's rocking an NVIDIA ION graphics chip, along with an Intel Atom processor, and in terms of video, it projects 1080p onto a 60-inch diagonal. The contrast ratio is 1000:1, and the lamp brightness is 100 lumens. It's not as bright as a SIM2 special obviously, but MSI explained it's somewhere between a pico projector and a home projector.

It's just a concept for now, but MSI was pretty confident they'll be able to get it to market in the third quarter of 2010. Look out for it then, if projecting Word documents is your usual style. [MSI]
