The MSI Wind U160MX is a new version of the Wind U160 netbook MSI first introduced over a year ago. But there’s one key difference: The U160X is available with either a single or a dual core Atom processor.

The folks at Notebook Italia got their hands on the new MSI Wind U160MX and have posted some unboxing photos and first impressions. For the most part, the computer loks just like earlier models. But there are a few subtle differences. The touchpad shape has been tweaked and while there’s still only really one button beneath the touchpad, there’s now a little notch in the middle which should make it easier to detect the left and right sides with your finger without looking down.

The Wind U160MX also comes with a new brushed-metal style paint job and a “silver black” color scheme.

The netbook comes with a 6 cell battery which doesn’t even come close to sitting flush with the case.

You can find more information and an unboxing video at Notebook Italia.
