MSI Wind U230 features dual core AMD Neo CPU

MSI Wind U230MSI has quietly introduced an updated version of the company’s U2xx series of 12.1 inch laptops. The MSI Wind U230 looks almost identical to the U200/U210 laptops that are already available, but the new model features two major updates:

  1. It runs Windows 7 Home Premium instead of Windows XP
  2. It features a dual core AMD Neo X2 processor

Here’s a rundown of the specs:

  • Display: 12.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel screen
  • CPU: AMD Yukon MV40/L335 dual core processor
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon HD3200
  • RAM: Up to 4GB of DDR2 667/800MHz RAM (2 DIMM slots)
  • Storage: 160GB/250GB/320GB HDD
  • Connectivity: 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Ethernet, optional Bluetooth
  • I/O: HDMI, 3 USB ports, mic, headphone, VGA, 4-in-1 card reader
  • Webcam: 1.3MP
  • Battery: 3 or 6 cell options
  • Dimensions: 11.7″ x 7.5″ x 1.2″
  • Weight: 2.9 pounds (with 3 cell battery)

MSI claims that the laptop should get about 4 hours of battery life, which generally means you’ll probably be able to get 3 to 3.5 hours if you’re lucky.

    This is a very interesting system. Hope the pricing is competitive with dual-core CULV based systems.

    Do you know any online retailers having this one in stock?

    I wonder how much it will be priced.
