Labels: , , , , , , , , , , , ,

MSI has just made two more netbooks official, it's the Wind U130 and U135. Both of these netbooks will be available in the first half of 2010 with Intel's new Atom N450 CPU. They both feature: a 10-inch display with a 1,024 x 600 resolution, a 160GB / 250GB HDD, and Windows 7. The only clear difference between the two is that the U135 will have a larger trackpad and a chiclet keyboard - the battery may also be slightly larger. The Wind U130 and U135 will be available for £229 ($369 USD) and £L279 ($445 USD), respectively. Expect these at CES 2010.

Update: Check out Netbooked, they've just shared their hands-on thoughts on this netbook.

Update: According to Engadget, they've just dug up some information on another netbook. This one (below) is the MSI Wind U160. This is another netbook with Intel's upcoming Intel N450 CPU and a chiclet keyboard. This should be priced at around $350 and the battery should last around 10 hours, which isn't bad. The display will be 10-inches, but we don't have the full spec sheet at the time.

Update: According to Netbooked, MSI has just put up a product listing for the Wind U130, so you can check that out here. There'll actually be 3 / 6 / 9-cell battery options and optional WiMAX which is pretty good. The full spec sheet below is courtesy of Netbooked.
