MSI Wind gets AMD makeover
Two Neo SKUs coming soon
After sticking AMD Neo parts into two X-Slim series notebooks, pictures of another MSI Neo notebook have surfaced at Netbook Italia.
The 12-inch Wind U210 is based on AMD's Athlon Neo MV-40 at 1.6GHz, and it will be available in two SKUs. The cheaper version will ship with XP, a rather netbookish 1GB of memory and 160GB of storage, and it will cost €399.
For €449 you'll get 2GB of memory and a 250GB hard drive and Vista Home Premium. The Intel-based U200 costs around €600, which is quite pricey for such a device, but at €399 it makes a bit more sense.
