Ever wonder what an MSI Wind notebook would look like with a big old black Bezel around the screen? Enter the MSI Wind U90. Blogeee reports that the laptop, which will not be available in the US, should start shipping next week.

This variant, which made its first appearance at Computex a few months ago, is virtually identical to the MSI Wind U100 in all respects but two:

  1. It won’t be available in the US
  2. It features an 8.9 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display instead of the 10.2 inch 1024 x 600 pixel display its bigger sibling uses

For MSI, it makes plenty of sense to pack the smaller display into the larger chasis. It saves the company money both because smaller displays are cheaper and because there’s no need to produce a whole new case. But there’s an upside for the end user as well: You get the nice big, roomy keyboard offered by the MSI Wind U100 even if you pick up a U90 instead. You just have to learn to live with a bezel — and hope that MSI charges a few bucks less for the U90.

Update: As several people have pointed out in the comments, the U90 is already available in some countries. Apparently what’s new here is that it will hit France next week. Thanks!
