Although an official announcement has not been made, apparently MSI will launch a new netbook with Windows 7 soon. At least, that can be deduced by visiting a product page on its website where the new item is labeled as “Wind12 U230″.
This ultrathin notebook comes with the new AMD Athlon Neo X2 Dual-Core Processor at 1.6GHz, which is accompanied by an integrated graphics chipset (ATI’s Radeon HD 3200). Other features are similar to the ones found in the current Wind12 U210 notebook, including a
12.1-inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 768.
Also, it comes with 1GB of RAM that can be optionally increased up to 4 GB, and hard drives ranging from 160GB to 320GB. The standard version features a 1.3-megapixel webcam, Gigabit Ethernet, and a Wi-Fi module. In addition, it has a HDMI port, VGA connector, and three USB ports.
Bluetooth connectivity is optional, as well as a 6-cell battery that is supposed to provide up to 4 hours of battery life.
