In terms of performance and battery life, MSI’s new Wind U230 seems to fall somewhere between the other Wind netbooks and MSI’s line-up of larger, more traditional notebooks. It’s got a solid ATI GPU under the hood, and performed well in gaming tests – though the AMD Neo processor couldn’t keep up with Intel’s SU7300.

Nevertheless, the thin-and-light U230 is (based on MSI’s history) going to be pretty aggressively priced and may be a popular choice for netbookers who plan on doing a bit of gaming on the go.

Netbook Newsscored some quality time with the U230 [translate link], and they have now shared a hands-on video. Check it out after the break!
