MSI has added a new AMD Athlon Neo-powered laptop to its lineup. The 12.1 inch notebook looks an awful lot like the previously released MSI Wind U210, but the new model has a new name and a new operating system. It’s called the MSI L2100-036US and it runs Windows 7 Home Premium instead of Windows Vista.
The CPU is a 1.6GHz AMD Neo MV-40 processor, and the display has a resolution of 1366 x 768. Rounding out the specs are ATI Radeon X1250 graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 3 USb ports, a 4-in-1 card reader, mice and headphone jacks (and a line in jack, which is uncommon on notebooks), as well as VGA and HDMI outputs.
The LS2100 weighs 3.2 pounds with a 6 cell battery and measures 11.7″ x 7.5″ x 1.2″. The new model also costs about $20 less than the MSI Wind U210, at $459.99.
