It’s a little to big to be a netbook, so we suppose that makes it an ultra-portable: today computer maker MSI took the wraps off its Wind U210 notebook computer, a compact unit offering a 12.1-inch display, 2 GB of RAM, and Windows Vista Home Premium, all powered by a 1.6 GHz AMD Athlon Neo MV-40 processor.
Like other computers in MSI’s Wind notebook lineup, the U210 is easy on the hands and back: it weighs just 3.2 pounds and measures 1.2 inches thick. The 12.1-inch display features a 1,366 by 768-pixel resolution, and it’s driven by ATI Radeon X1250 graphics with HDMI output so users can push high definition pictures and video to a big screen. The U210 also features 2 GB of RAM, a 250 GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, a 1.3-megapixel webcam, three USB 3.0 ports, and a 4-in-1 media card reader. The U210 ships with a 6 cell battery MSI says should be good for up to four hours of use.
The Wind U210 is available now through retailers like Amazon and Newegg in white or black for a suggested price of $429.99; the unit comes with a one-year warranty.
