The bad news is that the global battery shortage has hit MSI hard. We already knew that the first units out the door would have a 3 cell battery rather than the 6 cell battery MSI had planned to include. But we didn’t know until today just how long you’d have to wait for a Wind notebook with a higher capacity battery. CrunchGear reports that you won’t be able to pick up a 6 cell version until September.
The 3 cell unit will cost $20 less than the 6 cell version, but I think a lot of folks would rather have twice the battery life for a few bucks more.
