Sure, you already knew that the Advent 4211 notebook is virtually identical to the MSI Wind. The only major difference is that the Advent PC is only available in the UK and it has Advent branding instead of MSI. But sometimes seeing is believing. Lucky for us, Pocket Lint has access to one of each, and snapped some side by side photos.

One thing I hadn’t realized up until now is that the MSI Wind has a glossy top cover while the Advent 4211 looks like it has more of a matte finish. While this gives the MSI Wind that shiny, happy look, it also means that the Wind is more likely to show fingerprints and other smudges.

For the most part, the two computers look the same. But if you’ve ever wondered what two tiny laptops do when hanging out in a park (or draped across the back of a car), head on over to Pocket Lint for a few more photos.
