As we suspected in yesterday’s post regarding the official MSI Wind U110 ECO launch, MSI has made a mistake in the specification list. We were confused when in the list there was an ATi Radeon HD3200 listed for graphics duty. However, given that the Intel Poulsbo US15W chipset features integrated GMA500 graphics and only two PCI Express x 1 lanes it was hard to see how it was possible.
MSI has now officially confirmed that the listing was indeed a mistake and the GMA500 integrated graphics will have to suffice, which may be a disappointment for some.
The Wind U110 offers a nine-hour battery life. Other specs include Intel’s Menlow Atom 1.6GHz Z530, 1GB of RAM and Windows XP, together with a 160GB hard-drive. There’s also optional Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi draft-n support. Pricing and availability is yet to be announced.
