If the MSI Wind U135DX looks familiar, there’s good reason. It’s virtually identical to the Wind U135 netbook which has been available since January. But there’s one minor difference: The new model has a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N455 processor while the original ships with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom N450 chip.
The only difference between these two chips is that the Atom N455 supports DDR3 memory, but for some reason the MSI product page for the Wind U135DX says the netbook ships with 1GB of DDR2 RAM. Go figure.
Rounding out the specs are a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, Intel GMA 3150 graphics, 160GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, a 0.3MP camera, flash card reader, 3 USB ports, and VGA output.
The MSI Wind U135DX will be available with a choice of a 3 or 6 cell battery. There’s no word on pricing or availability yet.
