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.
