The MSI Wind U100 is certainly one of the most well-received netbooks of the summer. While it has the same specs as many other low-cost laptops (1.6GHz Intel Atom CPU, 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM and 80GB HDD), the computer is solidly built, has an easy to use keyboard, and gets decent battery life.

Now MSI officials are starting to look ahead to the next generation of the MSI Wind lineup. The company plans to introduce an MSI Wind U120 net year, which will feature the same 10 inch screen as the U100, but will have more RAM and possibly a faster CPU, if MSI can figure out how to implement one without sacrificing battery life.The most likely candidate for a new chip is the upcoming Intel Atom N330 dual core CPU. MSI appears to have considered using the upcoming VIA Nano processor, but decided against it.

The U100’s cousin, the U90 with its 8.9 inch display will also get the update treatment. The new model will likely be called the MSI Wind U91.
