Laptop Magazine Goes Hands On with the MSI Wind

MSIWind_g01The MSI Wind ultra-portable is now official and Laptop Magazine has given it the once over. In a posted review that gives it 4 and 1/2 stars out of five, Laptop Mag things that the MSI Wind is more than a worthy competitor to all of the other ultra-portables now competing for our attention. According to the review several things stand out.

  • A full sized keyboard
  • The 10 inch screen
  • 5 plus hours of battery life
  • Price point ($499 for the XP version, the Linux version will come in at $399)
  • One touch overclocking

And some things not so positive:


  • A single bar mouse button
  • Below average wireless throughput
  • Limited non-toll free tech support

We’ve been hearing about the Wind for quite some time now and this is the first hands on review we’ve seen. Now we’ll hopefully get a chance to see how this fares in the hands of users soon. Check out the full review and specs here.
