How many times have you found yourself wishing that your netbook touchpad would glow when you scroll your finger over it? Well, MSI has finally heard your plea. The company is showing an MSI Wind U120 netbook at CES with a feature that does exactly that.

And umm, yeah, that’s about the only thing it does. Aside from the glowing touchpad, this netbook looks exactly like any other MSI Wind U120, which is to say it has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, a 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, and a roomy hard drive.

But if you’re looking for some of that hot glowing touchpad action, check out the video after the break.

  1. Luckily I have a netbook with a white keyboard/case. Don’t really need a glowing anything. 🙂

  2. How often have I wanted a backlit touch pad? Never.

    How often have I wanted a backlit keyboard? ALL THE TIME!

    Seriously I use my netbook in bed, watching TV, all over the place. It’s never sitting flat so I can’t touch type on it.
