I’ve never had the chance to check out an MSI Netbook, I’ve tried to get one for review, but it hasn’t happened yet… Anyway, today though they officially announced their new Wind U135 netbooks which are the first to feature the Intel Pine Trail Platform and feature the Atom N450 Processor in them. They’re available in four different colors, Silver, Charcoal, Ruby and Sapphire and have a starting price of $309.99, which isn’t too bad at all. They’re running Widows 7 starter and come with either 1 or 2gbs of ddr2 ram and either a 160gb HDD or a 250gb HDD.

 

MSI Computer, a leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, is proud to announce the availability of the MSI Wind U135 netbook.  These special edition netbooks commemorate the millions of Wind models sold globally and are the first to feature the powerful, yet efficient Intel Pine Trail Platform with the Atom™ N450 processor .  Available in Silver, Charcoal, Ruby and Sapphire, the newest addition to the Wind family also features a 160GB or 250 GB hard drive, 1 GB of DDR2 memory and Windows 7 Starter and start at $309.99.

The U135’s new CPU and single chipset architecture combine to consume just 7 watts, increasing battery life by 15% and overall performance by as much as 10%. Consumers can choose between a 3-cell or 6-cell battery, with the later delivering a battery life of up to 7.5 hours. 

The U135’s battery life also benefits from MSI’s exclusive MSI ECO Engine Technology and an efficient LED display. The ECO Engine technology allows users to choose from 5 power modes–Gaming, Movie, Presentation, Document and Turbo Battery–to customize the power supply based on usage requirements.

The U135 also features several design upgrades including a new raised chiclet keyboard and a color film printed case.  The elevated keys are 20% larger, firm to the touch and improve typing accuracy and user comfort.  The U135’s stylish color film printed case prevents smudging, giving the netbook a glossy finish.  MSI also packed a 1.3M webcam, D-Sub port, 3 USB 2.0 ports and 4×1 card reader into the portable lightweight U135.

The new Wind U135 is available now at retailers such as Fry’s Electronics and Comp USA, and online at Amazon and Newegg for $309.99 – $329.99.  MSI offers a 1-year limited warranty with the U135 and extended customer services hours at 1-888-447-6564.
