Back in December I started to notice that the price on the original MSI Wind U100 with a 3 cell battery had fallen to around $300, but it wasn’t clear whether this was a permanent price drop or just a holiday sale price. With several new models hitting the streets in 2009, it looks like the $300 MSI Wind U100 is here to stay.
Amazon is currently offering the netbook for $299.95, with free shipping.
The Wind U100 has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, a 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, and runs Windows XP Home Edition.
Or for just $30 more, you can pick up a newer MSI Wind U120 with the same basic specs, but a 6 cell battery that should provide around twice the run time.
