The guys over at UMPC Fever have taken the traditional ‘unboxing’ to new levels by stripping the Wind U115 right down to its Hybrid storage. The MSI Wind U115 Hybrid promises the longest battery life yet seen in a netbook through a combination of 9-cell battery and hybrid storage solution. Recent tests have shown that the battery life lasted as long as 13 hours on a single charge.
The model came with a 160GB Western Digital Scorpio Blue HDD and 8GB SDD, seated next to 1GB of RAM. Overall, the U115 Hybrid is believed to come in three HDD/SDD combinations. There will be 8GB SSD + 80GB HDD, 16GB SSD + 120GB HDD and 32GB SSD + 160GB HDD models planned. The model won’t be cheap though with an expected price point of €549 in Europe.
