MSI Wind U230MSI has quietly introduced an updated version of the company’s U2xx series of 12.1 inch laptops. The MSI Wind U230 looks almost identical to the U200/U210 laptops that are already available, but the new model features two major updates:

  1. It runs Windows 7 Home Premium instead of Windows XP
  2. It features a dual core AMD Neo X2 processor

Here’s a rundown of the specs:

  • Display: 12.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel screen
  • CPU: AMD Yukon MV40/L335 dual core processor
  • Graphics: AMD Radeon HD3200
  • RAM: Up to 4GB of DDR2 667/800MHz RAM (2 DIMM slots)
  • Storage: 160GB/250GB/320GB HDD
  • Connectivity: 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Ethernet, optional Bluetooth
  • I/O: HDMI, 3 USB ports, mic, headphone, VGA, 4-in-1 card reader
  • Webcam: 1.3MP
  • Battery: 3 or 6 cell options
  • Dimensions: 11.7″ x 7.5″ x 1.2″
  • Weight: 2.9 pounds (with 3 cell battery)

MSI claims that the laptop should get about 4 hours of battery life, which generally means you’ll probably be able to get 3 to 3.5 hours if you’re lucky.

  1. This is a very interesting system. Hope the pricing is competitive with dual-core CULV based systems.
