MSI Wind12 U230 officially launched & reviewed

November 27, 2009 at 5:50 pm

MSI Wind12 U230Details of the 12.1-inch MSI Wind12 U230 ultra-thin already popped up on its official website at the end of last month although the product page was pulled shortly after. MSI has now officially unveiled the Wind12 U230. The model is similar to the U200/U210 models, but comes with Windows 7 and is powered by AMD’s new Congo 1.6GHz dual-core processor.

The company claims that AMD’s new platform consumes 60 percent less power than standard notebooks and offers 4-hours of battery life. It also comes with the AMD RS780MN and SB710 chipsets that support HD and DX10 and ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics.

Hexus has already managed to review an early engineering sample of the U230. They felt AMD’s Congo platform performed admirably against Intel’s Core 2 Duo processors. Graphics performance was also good, with basic casual gaming a possibility.

Battery life was a negative point, managing to last for just over three hours. It was also noisy in use, had a highly reflective glossy display and glossy lid prone to fingerprint marks. However, this needs to be measured against a device that has good build quality, a comfortable keyboard and value price point of £399. Retail availability is expected in January.

    When you say just over 3 hours of battery time you do not specify which battery you used for the test.

    So which is it, 3 or 6 cell? And what was the HDD size? Did it have bluetooth?

    When making these types of reviews you need to specify what you used if there are options because your results will vary.
