The MSI Wind U120 netbook features a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, a 10.2 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, and Windows XP operating system. Rob at MSI Wind en Espanol has been playing with one since last month, and this weekend he took the netbook apart and post some photos of the mainboard and all the other components. If you’re a hardware hacker looking for a spot for a GPS module, take a look.

The photos also show the placement of the hard drive, wireless card, and other components. So if you need to take your laptop apart to replace a faulty part, you can use these images as a sort of roadmap.

If you want to know how the Wind U120’s innards look compared to the original MSI Wind U100, there are plenty of topless images of the original MSI netbook online.

  1. This hybrid storage approach is kind of interesting, but it depends on the read/write speeds of the included SSD. I’m mostly interested in SSD storage due to their impact resistance, so if I was to replace the HDD with a 2.5″ SSD would the onboard still be the best place to keep the OS? Or will it be cheap crap best ignored?

  2. Thanks for the pointer… The pictures are quite good. The inside of the MSI looks very neat. I especially like the sticky tape keeping the BIOS battery in place!!!
