If you’ve been constantly refreshing your browser window hoping to see if the MSI Wind was on sale at Amazon, Newegg, or other retailers yet, you can lay off the F5 button. While the $499 laptop as supposed to drop today, it looks like MSI has updated the estimated ship date to June 27th. You can find mro eetails at the MSI Shop web page.
On the bright side, both the black and white models should be available at the same time. No word on when the $399 Linux version will ship.
You can place orders now. I assume if you do so, your computer will ship on June 27th, or as soon as they become available. I’m a little relucatant to place an order myself at the moment, since I’m moving on July 1st. Hopefully I’ll be able to find a Wind NB at a retail store in New York on June 27th.
MSI is limiting sales to one per customer at the moment due to limited availability. And the web site is incredibly slow right now, probably because it’s getting hammered by angry/anxious netbook customers.
