MSI Wind U123
MSI has announced the Wind U123 netbooks, featuring a 10-inch display and Intel’s Atom N280 1.66GHz processor.
The first three models in the MSI Wind U123 Series are the U123, U123H and U123T, all based on the Intel 945GSE chipset. The Windows-compatible netbooks come with 1GB of DDR2 RAM, up to 160GB of hard drive space, and a 3- or 6-cell battery. The LED backlight display has a resolution of 1024×600 pixels.
There are also a 1.3MP or 2MP web camera, depending on model, stereo speakers, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, optional Bluetooth, an Ethernet LAN port, and a 4-in-1 media card reader.
The standard U123 and the U123H with 3.5G HSDPA mobile broadband support have three USB ports. The U123T has two USBs, but includes a built-in TV tuner.
The netbooks weigh around 2.2 pounds. MSI says the U123 Series’ styling is different from the “round and cute” U100. The U123 has “sharper lines and more stylish new colors like the pearl white, dolphin gray, midnight blue and silver red favored by young professional office workers”.
