m5

I mentioned earlier the in the news that I received an MSI Wind for review, but today they’ve just announced two more. The two new models seem to be identical except for the hard drive capacities and which processor you get to choose from. They both use an AMD Athlon CPU, either the Neo MV-40 or the X2 L335. Pricing is $429.99 and $459.99 for the X2 with larger HDD.

MSI Computer, a leading manufacturer of computer hardware products and solutions, is proud to announce the availability of the new Wind12 U230-033 and U230-040.  The new models will replace the successful Wind12 U210, a favorite among netbook users looking for a larger screen and more computing power.   Upgrades to this new generation of netbooks include the first Wind to feature a dual core processor and Bluetooth connectivity.

Weighing in at just 3.3 pounds both versions of the U230 ship with 2GB of DDR2 memory, with a 6-cell battery and Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.  The newest editions to the Wind family are loaded with a 12.1” HD (1366×768) 16:9 aspect ratio LCD and an ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics card.  The combination delivers a bright widescreen visual experience with exceptional color saturation and crisp imagery.

The Wind12 U230 also features MSI’s EDS (Ergonomic De-stress) keyboard with keys that are 51% larger than those on a standard keyboard.  The larger keys greatly improve finger contact range, which reduces stress on fingers and wrists to improve accuracy and comfort. Additionally, MSI included a 1.3M webcam, HDMI port, 3 USB 2.0 ports, VGA port, and a 4×1 card reader in the new U230 notebooks.

The new Wind12 U230 models are available now at Newegg.com starting at $429.99.  MSI offers a 1-year limited warranty with extended customer services hours at 1-888-447-6564.
