Dual-core Neo and new chipset
Shortly after launching the X430, MSI has decided to announce another refresh of its AMD ultrathin lineup.
The 12-inch Wind U230 got a new AMD RS780MN + SB710 chipset with Radeon HD3200 graphics and a new, dual-core Athlon L335 processor.
Other than that, the U230 is pretty much like a plain U200/210. It packs a 1366x768 screen, up to 320GB of storage and up to 4GB of DDR2 RAM.
Nothing new in the connectivity department either, just b/g/n wireless and optional Bluetooth. It is available with 3-cell or 6-cell power packs and weighs 1.3kg with the 3-cell unit.
No word on pricing or availability yet, but it should end up somewhat cheaper than Intel CULV-based models.
