MSI has once again beefed up its Wind notebook line, this time with a pair of AMD-based models built around a 12.1-inch form factor. The new Wind12 U230-033 and U230-040 replace the Wind12 U210, "a favorite among netbook users looking for a larger screen and more computing power," MSI claims.
The U230-033US ships with an Athlon Neo MV-40 processor, ATI Radeon HD3200 graphics, 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, 1.3MP webcam, three USB 2.0 ports, HDMI-out, 4-in-1 memory card reader, a 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium.
Upping the ante, the U230-040 trades the Neo processor for an Athlon X2 L335 and swaps the 250GB hard drive for a 320GB HDD. All other specs remain the same, including MSI's EDS (Ergonomic De-stress) keyboard with keys that are 51 percent larger than those on a standard keyboard.
The 033 and 040 models are available now for $430 and 480, respectively.
