MSI has removed the wraps on its latest Wind U160DX netbook. This is an ultra-thin portable that comes packed with some really interesting technical specifications. First and foremost, the MSI Wind U160DX is incorporated with Intel Atom N455 1.66GHz processor that is driven by MSI’s Turbo Drive Engine technology.
The Wind U160DX contains a 10.1-inches LED display at 1024×600 resolution, 2GB DDR3 RAM, 160GB+ hard drive storage, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi support, Bluetooth support, a 1.3-Megapixel camera and a 3/6 cell battery input.
The exterior of the MSI Wind netbook is less than 1-inch thick and the device itself weighs just 1 Kg. It is an ideal device for your on-the-move needs. Also, with a battery life of close to 15 hours, expect some really good long lasting work sessions while you are traveling. However, MSI runs on a Windows 7 Starter platform which may not be compatible for everyone. A Windows 7 Home Premium would have been ideal.
We are still to hear from MSI about the price and launch date. But they are being announced soon. Sit tight.
