MSI started showing off its new U270 laptop with an AMD Zacate chip last week in Taiwan. But instead of flying out to Taiwan to see the laptop, I waited until I could check it out at CES in Vegas.
It’s a nice looking machine, although the touchpad is noticeably small, and the computer has a somewhat cheap plastic feel. Hopefully these are signs that it will carry a low price tag.
The MSI U270 has an 11.6 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display and a 1.6GHz AMD E-350 dual core processor. It has AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics on the same chip as the CPU. The computer has 4GB of RAM and the model I saw had a 250GB ard drive. It has 3 USB ports, (one is a USB 3.0 port), VGA, and HDMI output. The computer runs Windows 7 Home Premium.
