    Post MSI Book PC

    Sup everyone
    Nick here, just thought of a couple questions since I'm stuck at work an hour late!!!!!!!!!!!!! DAMNIT!!! lol. Im probably leaning towards just building my own but i'm very bored so I might as well kill some time. I really like the look of the MSI book pcs and they have great features. Also I work in a computer store and we carry some msi products and they're a very solid company. The thing that makes me not want to buy one of these book pcs is the fact that it only has like a 145watt power supply. This will probably work fine with a celeron however im a performance man and I want a 1gig PIII. I dont think a 145watt PS will be adequete for a 1gig chip, however, I realize that my other periphials wont draw as much power (laptop hard drive, dvd, etc). If this power supply can run a 1gig this might be my route if not, is anyone familiar with changing out the PS in these, its obviously not a standard PS, right?

    I use an MSI 6215. Sorry to hear it has been discontinued. It's an excellent machine and gets good use in my car.
