MSI Wind U200 hands-on pictures

MSI Wind U200We have not heard too much about the 12-inch Wind U200 recently. Whilst it has somewhat been overshadowed by Lenovo’s 12” Ideapad S12 ION, there is still a lot going for the Wind U200. It seems like a solidly built netbook with a full-sized keyboard and high-res display (1366 x 768). It’s also one of the first netbooks to use an Intel CULV processor, in particular the 1.2GHz Intel Celeron M Processor ULV 723. This will be paired with the Intel GS45 chipset and Intel GMA 4500M graphics.

Blogeee managed to get hands-on with the U200 at a press event last week and has posted a number of close-up pictures of the device. It is just 31mm thick and weighs 1.4kg with a 6-cell battery. The full-sized keyboard stretches to the edge of the chassis and has large flat keys. Upgradeability should be a cinch as a large access panel provides entry to RAM, HDD and a Wi-Fi module. The display also looks quite bright, although the pictures were taken in a dark environment, so it will be interesting to see how the display fares under normal lighting. Availability and pricing has yet to be confirmed.
