MSI rolls out yet another Wind netbook

Written by Slobodan Simic

The MSI Wind U160MX
Despite the fact that netbook market might be dead soon enough, MSI has released a new model in its Wind lineup, the MSI Wind U160MX. This 10.1-incher features Intel's N455 CPU paired up with Intel's GMA 3150 integrated graphics and a battery that should keep it running for up to 8.5 hours.

The full spec list includes the Atom N455 running at 1.66GHz paired up with 1 or 2GB of DDR3-667 memory, a 10.1-inch WSVGA LED backlit screen, chicklet keyboard, 250/320GB of storage space, three USB 2.0 ports, card reader, 802.11bgn WiFi, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 10/100 LAN, 0.3M webcam, 3-cell battery and Windows 7 Starter OS.

Of course, MSI also included its own TDE (Turbo Drive Engine) and ECO Engine technologies, which either overclock the CPU when running intensive tasks or simply downclocks it to save power. The new Wind U160MX has 265 x 165 x 19.8~25.4mm dimensions and is pretty light, weighing in at just 1kg.

The most important detail, the price, remains a mystery.

Quoting Jermelescu:

Could be a Fusion product and maybe it would even come with a Windows that let you change the wallpaper! Oh well, they will learn soon enough... :]

I think if AMD and Intel want to remain in
Netbook market must go to designing table
and design a chip for this market from
scratch ,otherwise in one or two year they
have nothing to put against ARM chips .

Honestly right now they can put 16 core
on ann Arm design and it need less power
than Atom or any AMD Solution for this
