    Love love LOVE this model. As much as I don’t like glossy, I think model is just fine. The screen is solid when you tilt the screen from one side. I’m digging the mouse pad which is not glossy, thank goodness. And the keyboard layout is finally normal. (Ctrl and Fn are switched). Overall, good notebook/ netbook. Not sure if it’s too big to be considered a netbook. however, still light enough and portable enough to carry around. Really loving the 12″ screen too. The graphic are pretty nice and big enough for me to work one several documents without getting annoyed of the lack of screen space like my U100. I like the silver engraving of “msi” on the inside too :)

    Oh yeah! I forgot to mention. I read somewhere on msi’s twitter that they’re giving away 5 of their u210 units. crazy. i think it’s something like a design contest where contestants submit a cover/skin design for the u210. sort of like the ipod contest. and the winning design gets painted on a u210 and given to the designer. and the other units are given to the runner ups and ramdomly selected voters. pretty sweet deal. it’s free, so why not?! mid-november i beleive is when they’re doing this. it would be on their website.

    These are great screen protectors, and very inexpensive! I first bought a set of two, which were good, except in broad daylight, then they are almost impossible to see through!
