Remember that MSI Wind U250 notebook that we spotted on the US Energy Star web site a few months ago? No? That’s OK, I’d kind of forgotten about it myself — until it showed up at an AMD event in Cannes yesterday.

The folks at NewGadgets.de got a chance to snap a few photos of a pre-production version of this 12.1 inch notebook with an AMD processor. There’s not a lot of information about the specs at the moment, but according to the Energy Star web site, the notebook will have a 1.3GHz AMD Athlon II Neo dual core K325 processor — which just so happens to be one of the new low power chips for ultrathin laptops that AMD introduced yesterday.

The K325 has a total power draw of 15W and 2MB of L2 cache. It’s basically the slowest/cheapest dual core AMD processor for ultrathin notebooks. It will also support up 4GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive.

  1. I was told in an email by MSI USA that the Wind U250 is only available in Taiwan. Not to be released in the US.

  2. The performance of K325 should be not very different than previous-gen 1.6GHz dual-core parts. The big question is power consumption and price.

    1. so is it better than the u230 in terms of processor power? coz its only 1.3 whereas the u230 has 1.6Ghz. hoping for your kind reply thanks.
