MSI working on 12-inch Wind U230 netbook

MSI is getting ready to unleash yet another addition to its Wind line of portable netbooks, the 12-inch U230. Unlike its Atom-based brethren, the new U230 shifts its attention to AMD's Neo CPU and ATI HD 3200 integrated graphics, something that can easily prove to be a winning combination.

The new 12.1-incher should measure 297x190x31mm and should weigh in at 1.3kg with a 3-cell battery. The 12.1-inch display has a 1366x768 resolution and we suspect that MSI will use a glossy display once again, which is something that we honestly don't like.

The CPU in question is rumoured to be a 1.6GHz AMD Athlon Neo X2 while the rest of the specifications include Radeon HD 3200 integrated graphics, up to 4GB of memory and up to 320GB of hard drive space.

The new U230 will also come with a Gigabit LAN, WiFi, optional Bluetooth, an HDMI and D-Sub output, card reader, 1.3M web cam and a choice of either 3 or 6-cell battery.

The U230 will be shipped with Windows 7 Home Premium OS, but unfortunately the price or the release date are still unknown.
