The MSI Wind Notebook that I have here in my hot little hand is very lightweight. It has the Intel Atom 1.6GHz CPU, 1GB of Ram, and a 160GB hard drive. Oh – did I mention I have the black one?

The MSI Wind offers many features that make this notebook a portable laptop PC. The 10-inch screen has a 1024 x 600 resolution, which allows you to view entire web pages while online. The Wind is also equipped with a webcam and microphone, allowing you to interact with friends, family or co-workers while on the go.

Of course, I put my Chris logo sticker on the back of it. You can grab one for yourself if you choose to have a cool-looking sticker on your netbook!

It comes with a 6-cell battery. This allows it to run for about six hours. There’s also a 9-cell available, if you need to have it run longer.

I’m pretty happy with this little Netbook. I wasn’t really in the market for one, until I read an article about a variety of Netbooks. This thing is very neat, actually. The keyboard is not full-sized, however it’s only about 20% smaller than a normal one. I don’t like the fact that keys like the period, comma and slash keys are smaller than the other keys… which makes me typo frequently. I don’t like that, as it makes me less productive.

There are many Netbooks in this price range, which all do the basics. I can get online with this one, I can do some processing with this one. It will do anything I actually need it to do. Generally speaking, I can do quite a bit for hours on end without having to charge it.

I really like the MSI Wind. It works well, and does more than I need it to do. It even sleeps well! Just shut the lid, and it’s out like a light.

So there you have it, the skinny on the new MSI Wind Netbook. Why not pick one up for yourself today?

  1. I can’t wait to Hackintosh one of these! (And yes, I will buy the OS and put one of the Apple stickers on the computer so it is officially Apple-Labeled.)

  2. I bought the ASUS 1000 Chris, which basically has all the same specs as your MSI Wind. (I paid more, but I also bought it before all the other competition came along.) I’m happy with mine. It is the second one as the first I bought was the ASUS 700 with the solid state processor and SD slot. It worked well, but had a much smaller keyboard. IT was also smaller overall, and I didn’t like having to scroll vertically on the 7″ screen.
    Are you correct in that your keyboard is (20%) smaller than normal? Mine is 92% of normal, which is about the standard. I don’t find much difference from normal (smaller) keyboards of so-called standard size, except for the placement of the shift key. It is off-standard for a touch typist.



  3. I work in retail and we sell “netbooks” along with assorted Wintel units and Macbooks.
    The buyers of netbooks seem to be split between pure price shoppers and toy buyers (as gifts for others or self).
    Mercifully, no one really expects to do anything useful with one of these. Popular customer comment: “its a glorified Blackberry without the phone”.
    When I started using a Blackberry, I noticed it became a waste of energy to use my notebook at all, since basic web & mail works ok on a handheld.
    Without an Aircard and data plan, the netbook user is still tethered to WiFi or wired.
    My opinion: another component of the hi tech waste stream.

  4. I bought myself an MSi Wind U100 just before Christmas, and it has come in handy so incredibly much; considering I’m a student, and am studying an IT degree, I’m moving between lectures and classes all day, and carting around one of the bigger laptops starts to get annoying (considering all my classmates have heavy gaming laptops).

    The true beauty about it is that it’s powerful enough to run the essential programs – the entire office suite, web browsers, and a host of other programs that come in handy, yet it’s not powerful enough to play gaming applications (hence, less time wasted at school).

    It’s also light enough to carry in one hand and type in the other, and has a battery that lasts between 4 and 5 hours, which makes it long enough for you to do some serious work on it (even still, I would want a lot more).

    It’s seriously the most amazing thing I’ve bought, computer-wise, for as long as I can remember.
