MSI reveals Wind UMPC spec

Taiwan-based MSI recently revealed more information on its low-cost, ultra-portable laptop, the Wind Notebook. The roughly 2.2lb notebook will run on Windows XP and feature an unusually large 2.5-inch HDD with an 80GB capacity. The Wind will be offered with either an 8.9- or 10-inch LCD display, the resolution of which is pegged at 1024x600 pixels. It is expected to compete with ASUS' Eee PC 900.

Other reported specs are believed to include a choice of processors ranging from 1.0GHz to 1.6GHz, 1GB RAM and an impressive 7-hour battery life. MSI suggests the latter may be made possible with a high-capacity battery. At CeBIT back in March, MSI showed off white, blue, silver and pink colored Winds.

The notebook will be available in Europe starting in June, priced at between an equivalent $470 and $1100. North American dates and prices are expected, but have not yet been announced. [via the Inquirer]
