The MSI Wind U135 features a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 processor, 1GB of RAM, and 250GB hard drive. It runs Windows 7 Starter Edition and has 802.11b/g/n WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1. The netbook was released a few months ago, but the folks at MSI just sent me one to review, so I figured I’d post a little unboxing video.
Overall I like the design. The keyboard features an island-style layout with flat keys and spaces between them. The touchpad is nice and wide, although it has just a single button for left and right clicks. And the lid has a nice textured design that seems to be fairly resistant to fingerprints and smudges. I’m not a huge fan of glossy displays, which the Wind U135 has, but it’s more common to find netbooks with glossy displays than without.
