MSI Wind U180 Cedar Trail Netbook Up For Pre-Order in Germany
MSI first gained recognition for a great build quality on the original MSI Wind. While this has failed to innovate and just use cheaper materials instead, many are wondering if the latest model, the MSI Wind U180, made the difference from the others.
The 10.1-inch device ships with a 1,024 x 600 native screen resolution. It runs on Intel dual-core Atom N2800 the with clock speed of 1.86GHz. The chip is supported by 1GB of memory and has a 320GB hard drive for storage.
Additional features include GMA 3650 integrated graphics, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, an Ethernet port as well as a 0.3 megapixel webcam. Buyers will also get a token chiclet keyboard, a built-in SD/MMC card reader, a six-cell battery and Windows 7 Starter as the operating system of choice.
The MSI Wind U180 is now available for pre-order in Germany. With the specs mentioned above, it comes at the price of €349(around $451). Some may have second-thoughts on this since the MSI Wind netbooks haven’t changed for 3 years.
