Grown-up looks (as opposed to “day care” or “developing-country villager”). Largest screen among minis. Includes three USB ports, a VGA monitor connector and an SD slot

Lack of DVD is understandable, but it still makes us cry. Hard drive emits mysterious sounds. Two-hour battery life is just OK

Wind U100

 

MSI's Wind NB U100 is one of the first Intel Atom-based mini-notebooks to appear. And like the Acer's Aspire One, it gives a clear idea of what the bargain-priced CPU can handle. Other components include 1GB of RAM, an 80GB 2.5-inch hard drive, and...

Reasonably Bright 10-inch display Hardy construction

Not much in the way of extra software Not much in the way of extra software

There are some solid reasons to consider MSI's Wind. It's small and fairly light (about 2.6 pounds), and it's sturdy enough to take a beating. But other solidly-built mini-notebooks are just around the corner, including Lenovo's S10 and probably an...

MSI Wind U100

 

MSI has been moving into the notebook market in a big way over the past few years, with forays into business and gaming notebooks, and, this summer, netbooks, with the Wind U100. We have to say, we're impressed. Read on for the rest of the review!

Wider keyboard than most NetBooks

Larger notebook, need to spend a bit extra for the 6-cell battery

The corner hinges on the Wind are not quite as sturdy as the Eee PC's barrel hinge or the Aspire One's, but it's still solid. The matte screen is quite bright under AC power and readable at even 25 percent backlighting
