Written by Slobodan Simic

AMD Brazos platform
The guys from Netbooknews managed to get a hands-on with MSI's upcoming U270 Wind 12-inch notebook at MSI's pre-CES event in Taiwan. Based on the upcoming AMD Brazos platform, the Wind U270 features a 1.6GHz Zacate E-350 APU and should pack quite a punch under its 12-inch hood.

The entire device weighs around 1.3kg and it is less than an inch thick. It has a 12.1-inch screen and, as noted, is based on AMD's Brazos platform. The Zacate E-350 APU ticks at 1.6GHz and features DirectX 11 Radeon HD 6310 graphics. The rest of the features include up to 4GB of memory, up to 500GB of HDD space, D-Sub and HDMI outputs and USB 3.0 support.

MSI will apparently implement its ECO power-saving technology. The price, availability date and the rest of the features will be left for its official unveiling at CES 2011 in January.

so long as the price stays down, that would be very good value for a powerful package.

MSRP for the Brazos platform is $299-$549. Considering this is the top model APU being used I can say for sure that it will go past $299. Imo $399 would be a steal but I doubt it.

Ontario netbooks are looking at around £280/$400 so I'm guessing that these Zacate laptops will be around £350/$550
