The MSI Wind U200 netbook had a launch back in May of this year, but the company has just only recently officially announced this 12.1″ device.
The U200 will be powered by one of two Intel Ultra Low Voltage (ULV) processors, either the 723 or the SU3500, and be able to support up to 4 GB of RAM. Here’s a more comprehensive list of some tech specs of this machine:
- Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium
- Chipset GS45 + ICH9M-SFF
- VGA GMA 4500 MHD
- Memory Type DDR2 667/800Mhz
- 160/250/320GB SATA HD
- Wireless LAN 802.11 b/g/n
- I/O Card Reader 4-in-1 (support SD, MMC, MS XD)
- Communication LAN 10/100/1000
- (Optional) Bluetooth
- Three USB 2.0 Ports
With a 6-cell battery, the U200 is expected to last for roughly 6.5 hours when running in ECO Turbo mode,. This is a good amount of time, considering the 12.1″ screen size. Three-celled or nine-celled battery options are also available for this machine. With a 3-cell battery, the U200 weighs roughly 1.4kg. The netbook is 31mm at its thickest point.
Pricing is not yet available for the MSI Wind U200 netbook, but it should be soon, since the AMD version of this machine (the Wind U210 model) is already available in Europe.
