MSI Wind U230 gets Athlon Neo X2 below 500

MSI on Tuesday continued a string of netbook launches by formally launching the Wind U230 in the US. The 12-inch system overrides the U210 and, in one model, includes MSI's first use of AMD's dual-core, 1.6GHz Athlon Neo X2 to give it better-than-usual performance for the size and price. Windows 7 is also new and comes in full Home Premium guise rather than the Starter edition often associated with netbooks.

Apart from the processor, the chief addition inside is Bluetooth. Radeon HD 3200 graphics, 2GB of RAM, 802.11n Wi-Fi, a 1.3-megapixel webcam and HDMI out translate over from the U210.

In a base $430 configuration, the U230 comes with a single-core 1.6GHz Athlon Neo and a 250GB hard drive. Choosing the dual-core version raises the price to $480 but also includes a larger 320GB disk. Both are in stock at Newegg.
