Review MSI Wind U135 Netbook

 

UpWind? The Wind models were counted to the pioneers of the unyie

Attractive design; Very good case stability; User-friendly keyboard; Very good viewing angle stability; Low case temperatures; Low price

Case susceptible for grime; Center of gravity too far back; Average VGA connection quality; Reflective display; Perpetual fan presence; Speakers' poor sound quality

As already so often: older netbooks with Intel's Atom N27/N280 processors and GMA 950 graphics. A current immediate opponent in terms of both looks and configuration, as well as the price: Asus Eee 1005p.

MSI Wind U135 Review

 

The Wind U135 is the one of the newest netbooks from MSI in the 10-inch form-factor. Packed with the Intel Pine Trail platform this netbook promises increased battery life and performance compared to models still using the previous Intel Atom chipset....

Good design ; Capable touchpad with proper drivers ; Nice keyboard

Half the battery life of other Pine Trail netbooks ; Missing touchpad software out of the box

MSI Wind U135 Review

 

The MSI Wind U135 looks and performs well for a netbook, keeping pace with its competitors. Its price of $329 also makes it less expensive than the ASUS 1005PE ($379) and even the budget conscious Samsung N130 ($349). However, battery life takes a step...

Comfortable keyboard, Mutltiple color options, Bright display with good viewing angles, Low price

Shorter battery life than competition, Narrow, mushy touchpad button, Long boot time, Fan a bit loud

MSI Wind U135 review

 

But the computer isn't without its issues. There are no access panels for upgrading the RAM or hard drive, and the touchpad lacks support for multitouch gestures

MSI Wind U135

 

With the number of MSI Wind netbooks coming out this year, it's a bit hard to track down which model is which. Just in the 10-inch category, there's the U160, the U130 and then this Wind U135.

MSI Wind U135 Netbook Review

 

We have been fans of MSI's Wind series of netbooks. They have consistently rivaled Asus' Eee PC range and HP's Mini line, and the competition has been good for the industry. MSI's Wind line has remained relatively consistent over the years, with the...

Nice Overall Design ; Great Value At $315 ; Nice Chiclet Keyboard ; Great Battery Life ; Ultra Quiet And Cool ; HD Playback Support ; Atom N450 CPU

Glossy Display ; Only 1GB of RAM ; No Optical Drive ; No Multi-Touch Trackpad ; Only A 5400RPM HDD ; No USB 3.0 Ports

In our SiSoftware Sandra tests, the MSI Wind U135 put up decent scores, largely thanks to the new Atom N450 and more advanced GMA 3150 GPU. Both of these are at the top of the class in the netbook realm (for now, anyway). The 5400RPM hard drive held...

Product Specifications

Inspired by trendy elements from the world's foremost products, the MSI Wind Ul 35 high end design is based on an understated presence that still attracts attention. The stylish chiclet keyboard design expands the area of contact between Angers and keys when compared to regular keyboards, reducing typing errors and increasing comfort. In addition, the chiclet keyboard is designed to damp key-press sounds. Whether typing or gaming, the chiclet keyboard means you no longer have to fret about disturbing those around you with keyboard clicks and clatter. A 20% wider touch pad gives fingers more freedom of movement. Exquisite patterns increase the lively personality of the netbook, giving you not only greater comfort, but also a level of visual enjoyment. The X600 is embedded with LED power-saving backlight technology to provide better color fullness and brightness, elevating the total quality of imagery. Furthermore, the lower usage of power can offer a longer operating time. Built-in high resolution webcam, 2 channel stereo speakers and a microphone, all fitted perfectly within the framework design, expressing the slickness of technology and the elegance of modern fashion. Wind U13S also has the 802.11 ?/g/ draft n wireless all region Internet connection and Bluetooth transmission interface, so you can enjoy the convenience of accessing the Internet at home or out. There will be absolutely no obstacles getting around your daily life. MSI Wind U13S is powered by the Intel Atom processor, which delivers additional graphics and system performance while enabling longer battery life.
