MSI Win U180 Cedar Trail Netbook Up for Sale
Micro-Star International has completed the preparations for the shipping of the MSI Wind U180 Cedar Trail netbook. This goes with the collection of entry-level mobile personal computers.
There was no announcement or any actual effort to spread the word about this device. However, with how sharply the popularity of netbooks has declined recently, this is possible. There is also the matter of MSI not having put any effort into changing much of the Wind series of netbooks, design-wise that is.
The new model is powered by Intel Atom N2800 dual-core CPU with a clock speed of 1.86 GHz. Its video capabilities are provided GMA (graphics media accelerator) 3650. Storage is 350 GB HDD, while a built-in SD/MMC card reader allows for interfacing with cards from photo cameras, phones, etc.
Other specifications include an Ethernet port, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, a 0.3 megapixel webcam and a 10.1-inch LCD with native resolution is 1,024 x 600 pixels. As for software, the MSI Wind W180 netbook is loaded with Microsoft’s Windows 7 Starter.
The price is of 349 Euro, which more or less translates into $451. Whether or not this sum is worth it for something that soon enough won’t have over Ultrabooks is for buyers to figure out. Everyone should just try and remember that even the first-generation Ultrabooks have gone down in price.
