The MSI Wind U210, the AMD-powered version of the CULV-based Wind U200, was only unveiled last week, but Pierre over at Blogeee has already gone hands-on. The MSI Wind U210 is a 12.1-inch mini-notebook that comes with an AMD Neo processor.
The Wind U210 has a 12.1-inch (1366 x 768) LED backlit display and is powered by a 1.6GHZ MV40 processor & ATi Radeon X1250 graphics. It can support a maximum of 2GB RAM and is available in 160GB/250GB storage sizes. It also comes with a 6-cell battery and HDMI-out.
Pierre gives us a comprehensive look at the U210 and also compares it to a 10-inch Wind U100. He also managed to fit the U100 battery into the U210 with success. It does have a glossy lid, but is not as much of a fingerprint magnet as other models. Another positive note is that the bottom panel easily allows you to upgrade components.
