MSI Wind U160 to get a dual core Atom N550 chip

MSI launched the Wind U160 netbook along with a few other 10 inch models earlier this year. At the time they were shipping with the same boring 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processors found in most other netbooks of the day, but Netbook News reports that MSI will soon introduce a new version of the U160 with a shiny new Intel Atom N550 dual core chip.

The overall design o the netbook hasn’t changed. It still has an island-style keyboard, a touchpad with a bumpy texture, and a 6 cell battery that sticks out from the back and bottom of the laptop.

You can check out a hands-on video with the new Wind U160 from Netbook News after the break.
