The back of the box has a list of the various features of the motherboard and specifications. The rear also has a picture of the I/O on the board. Opening the box we see that MSI has a cardboard cover over the motherboard with the accessories and CDs atop it. MSI has gone the minimalist route with the P55-CD53 board. MSI includes a Trial version of Nortonís Internet Security, a copy of HDD Backup, and the Winki OS on a Driver DVD and Extras CD.

The Winki OS is a Linux based OS that can either be put on a USB flash drive or booted off the Driver DVD and run in the memory. What sets this apart from other solutions on the market is the ability to run Open Office on it. A full Mozilla web browser, a Photo viewer, a Skype application and Pidgin instant messenger client are the highlights of this OS. You can write and edit Word documents in the Open Office suite, along with Excel files. This takes up about 1.5GB of memory for the full suite.
