Dell, MSI, Acer and Sony have Menlow netbooks


Intel’s ultra mobile platform codenamed Menlow is going to support Windows 7, at least in two iterations. The company has informed its partners that Menlow will be supported by Windows 7 Starter and Windows 7 Home Basic.

Windows 7 Home basic will be supported only in select regions, and Menlow might become an interesting platform as it targets the sub-netbook market, as well as the thin netbook market and even more compact and mobile MIDs.

Dell, Acer, MSI and Sony have netbooks based on the Menlow platform and we’ve seen some great battery scores from them. Intel believes that in 2010 there will be more companies that should launch multimedia internet devices based on this platform. The point is that they need very little power and they provide a lot of battery life.
