Bit Tech offers a sneak peek into MSI's new products. The site briefly talks about the Wind notebook, unveils MSI has plans to release low-power in-car products and gives some insights on MSI's green design/resource/technology plans:
While MSI launched its ECOlution products at CeBIT, it further expanded on its green movement by highlighting to us that not only is its packaging was now made from recycled materials, and can easily be recycled but the ink will be made from biodegradable Soya substrate. The entry level Neo products you buy from June/July onwards will now come in a simple shade of yellow because of this because they use less ink and the basic recycled cardboard colour is now visible.

MSI was also keen to note that all its components sourced were RoHS compliant, even for countries that don’t enforce this, although it didn’t go as far as to specify environmentally sustainable resources and divulge into the overall MSI Carbon Footprint (which is probably "considerable" given the air travel for 40 journalists plus staff to Austria...).
