iBuyPower announced it will bundle "free" MSI Wind PC netbooks with select gaming PCs. The cheapest gaming PC eligible for this back-to-school action starts at $1,179.
Starting from Wednesday, IBuyPower will bundle free MSI Wind U100 netbook with select “Power Bundle” gaming rigs. The high-performance systems are based on AMD Phenom II or Intel Core i7 central processing units and feature ATI Radeon HD 4850/4890 or Nvidia GeForce 9800 GTX+/GTX 285 graphics cards and up to 12GB of DDR3 memory. Pricing of the gaming rigs varies from $1179 to $1849. Default configurations of Power Bundle computers are not optimal from some points of view, but end-users can customize them when they make their orders.
MSI U100 netbook is hardly something special: it is based on Intel Atom 1.60GHz processor, an Intel core-logic, is equipped with 1GB of memory, 120GB hard drive and features 10.1” screen with 1024x600 resolution.
