MSI started showing off the Wind U270 laptop in December and I got a chance to check out the portable notebook at CES in January. But the company has finally gotten around to putting out a press release, so we finally have detailed specs for the MSI Wind U270.

It turns out the laptop has a 12.1 inch display, not an 11.6 inch screen as I had initially thought. Whoops. The rest of the specs aren’t too surprising:

  • 1.6 GHz AMD Zacate E-350 dual cor eprocessor
  • AMD Radeon HD 6310 graphics
  • 12.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display
  • Up to 8GB of DDR3 memory
  • Up to 320GB of disk space
  • 720p webcam
  • 2 USB 2.0 ports and 1 USB 3.0 port
  • 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1
  • HDMI output
  • 3 or 6 cell battery options
  • Windows 7 Home Premium

The laptop also has Easy Face software that lets you login to Windows or to some web sites by pointing your face at the camera.

There’s still no word on pricing or a launch date for the MSI Wind U270.

  1. Seems as good as the other Zacate notebooks coming out, but are people really buying these, or any other net-/notebook with the 3-cell battery?

  2. Nice, so if I find one of these in the wild, I’ll be sure to take a picture of the owner, so I can hold it up in front of the camera for the easy face thing.
