The MSI Wind U90X' keyboard is the largest and most comfortable of any 8.9-inch mini-notebook on the market, and we like its spacious hard drive. But the SUSE Linux operating system was a mistake, and for thatwecannot recommend the U90X over the Acer...

Comfortable keyboard, Clever software features, Runs cool, Large hard drive

MSI Wind

 

Out of all the UMPCs available in the market, the MSI Wind is the best deal.

Aggressively priced (under $500). Runs the Intel Atom platform. Big 10-inch screen. Very light. 80GB hard drive. Windows XP Home Edition

Needs a bigger battery. Although pleasant to type on, the keyboard needs to be full-size
