MSI's Toast PC Doesn't Do Your Bread

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 24 comments

It's a mini PC in the shape of a toaster.

UsHour.com is reporting from CeBIT 2010 that MSI is showcasing a nettop PC that looks like a toaster. Although no real specs were provided, the company is actually calling this mini-rig the MSI Toast PC, taking full advantage of its bread-burning appearance.

Outside its unique design, the nettop provides a DVD insert slot at the top much like the way a toaster loads bead. The company has also integrated a remote control into the design, allowing the user to snap it into the side without disrupting the overall Toaster appearance.

MSI's CeBIT 2010 display stated that the Toast PC can serve as an "elegant decoration" as well as a functional PC. It can also integrate into your kitchen layout thanks to its ultra-thin body (think one slice). However, the company also clearly stated that consumers should refrain from inserting bread.

nDevil has additional pictures which can be found here.

    I can see some grandma or what nots stuffing down a piece of bread into it, expecting a piece of toast coming out

    Why stop half-way? Why not make it a functionnal toaster? It could even user some heat generated by the processor to toast bread. Talk about recycling energy!

    Top loading DVD slot.

    Great idea! I'm sure that will remain relatively free of dust.

    Don't eat beads. It hurts when you pee.

    Tom's, can you please get rid of those dumb ads in the upper left corner. Everything I change tabs i hit one of them which sets off a firestorm of unwanted surprise sounds and movies.

    I would never have a computer in the kitchen. You know how in computer labs you aren't suppose to bring food and drinks, why would you bring your computer to the mecha of food and drinks in your home?

    I would love a tiny PC and a flip down LCD stuck under the cupboards, if nothing else then for a small HTPC that can stream TV or movies form ur main server. But the whole internet radio, videos and everything else you can do with it would be kewl :)  I hate getting ideas when I don't currently have the money to go through with them, now I want a tiny PC and monitor for my kitchen :p

    Here's a toast to the toaster PC. 'May it's processor never overheat.' I hate burnt toast.

    LOL I had to put my two cents in this one.

    It would be funnier if instead of a DVD slit, it had an actual DVD tray shaped and painted to look like toasted bread, then every time you opened the DVD tray it actually looked like the toast was done, very funny if your burning a DVD, as soon as it is done it pops out LMAO! :o )
