MSI Announces U130 and U135 Wind Netbooks Running Intel Atom N450

All kinds of netbooks running the new Intel Atom N450 Pineview chipset have been surfacing today, starting with the new edition of the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 and then the Fujitsu Lifebook  MH380. MSI is following their announcements with releases of its own – the MSI Wind U130 and U135 netbooks running the N450 processor.

Supposedly, they will be the first netbooks to achieve international WiMax certification. This is a notable step for the netbook world, which has been pushing ever-harder for increased connectivity.Bat

The hardware changes on the new machine should be conservative but much appreciated – a 15% improvement in battery life, 10-inch LCD screens, a webcam, memory card reader, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and optional 3.5G mobile broadband. Storage options include 160 GB and 250 GB hard disk drives.

Furthermore, the pricing for these new machines isn’t bad at all – £229 ($367) for the U130 and £279 ($447) for the U135.
