MSI Wind U135 Netbook Runs Pine Trail CPU
- 1 Comment
MSI is taking advantage of the latest Intel Atom Pine Trail CPU with it’s Wind U135 netbook. The MSI Wind has a 250GB hard drive, 1GB of RAM, and of course, the 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N450 running Windows 7 Starter Edition. The screen measures 10.1 inches with 1024×600 resolution and the Wind has an Integrated Intel GMA 3150 to take advantage of it. There’s also a six-cell battery option which delivers up to 7.5 hours of life.
The chiclet-style keyboard is designed well, with decent spacing between the keys for comfortable typing. The touchpad, though attractive in the aesthetic sense, is a bit on the small side and does not support multi-touch. Furthermore, while the keyboard keys may give you that satisfying feeling when you type on them, the mouse button unfortunately does not. The LCD screen is LED-backlit and does not skip or lag in full-screen mode, and the speakers are acceptable by netbook standards: high max volume but low sound quality.
