MSI U91, U120 netbooks

MSI has plans to expand its Wind netbook range past the U100, according to an interview. Beyond the current system, the company says it is developing the U91, a new 8.9-inch computer whose other specifications are as yet unknown. Also in development is the U120, a system with a 10-inch screen and built-in HSDPA reception.

The company says it eventually intends to adopt dual-core Atom processors into its netbooks, but due to the extra power consumption, this will not happen in the near future. MSI is similarly hesitant to switch from Windows XP to Vista, primarily because it is thought to consume too much RAM for a netbook.

    Dual Core & Vista? Not!

    It's good to see that MSI is growing its netbook line. The company says it eventually intends to adopt dual-core Atom processors into its netbooks, but due to the extra power consumption, I doubt it will ever happen. MSI is rightly hesitant to switch from Windows XP to Vista, because it consumes too much RAM for a netbook.
    Windows Vista is just wrong...for a netbook or other book.
