MSI has added a new AMD Athlon Neo-powered laptop to its lineup. The 12.1 inch notebook looks an awful lot like the previously released MSI Wind U210, but the new model has a new name and a new operating system. It’s called the MSI L2100-036US and it runs Windows 7 Home Premium instead of Windows Vista.
The CPU is a 1.6GHz AMD Neo MV-40 processor, and the display has a resolution of 1366 x 768. Rounding out the specs are ATI Radeon X1250 graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, 3 USb ports, a 4-in-1 card reader, mice and headphone jacks (and a line in jack, which is uncommon on notebooks), as well as VGA and HDMI outputs.
The LS2100 weighs 3.2 pounds with a 6 cell battery and measures 11.7″ x 7.5″ x 1.2″. The new model also costs about $20 less than the MSI Wind U210, at $459.99.
Where, oh where, is the U230 dual core? I’m hoping they bring it out soon…
More important than the dual core is the HD3200 graphics. I got so excited for a moment when I saw the I2100…only to have my hopes dashed again when I saw it still has the x1250. I swear they are holding off on releasing it so they can get rid of the ones with the x1250 and so that people will break down and buy a thin and light with the 4500mhd :(.
They’ve been announced for months.
Might want to put FRY’S price of $399.99 on your daily deals list:
Such a good deal. Now the 10 inchers will have to drop substantially. Amazing, at 399 for Win 7 Premium, I think it is so so worth it for a 12 incher
It sounds like a good deal. I like to support competition and save money. It seems one can both with this one.
