MSI Wind U200MSI has already announced the 12.1-inch Wind U200 CULV-based netbook. However, it looks like MSI is releasing a companion netbook dubbed the Wind U210 that will be powered with an AMD Neo processor. The feature set looks to remain the same apart from the AMD internals.

Specifically, it will ship with an AMD Athlon X2 MV40 processor, 2GB RAM and a 250GB SATA HDD. It will also come with Windows Vista Home Premium. It will be available in both black and gray and cost €449 in mainland Europe. A cheaper SKU is also expected that will ship with Windows XP and have 1GB RAM and a 160GB HDD and cost €399. There’s no word of a UK price or shipping date right now.

The standard Wind U200 comes with a 1.2GHz Intel Celeron M Processor ULV 723, Intel GS45 chipset and Intel GMA 4500M graphics. It has a 12.1-inch high-resolution (1366 x 768) display. Other features include HDMI-out, Wi-Fi (Draft-N), Bluetooth 2.0, three USB ports, a 1.3MP webcam, 6-cell battery and 4-in-1 card reader. The Wind U200 is expected to ship in the next few weeks in Europe.

    You’re sure those are both stated to be dual core neos? I would definatly be interested if that was confirmed but I worry about heat and battery life after owning a dv2 for a week before the heat and fan got to me too much.

    I’m sure, that AMD New is not Dual Core.
