MSI is preparing to launch a
12-inch Windows 7 netbook
that will sit atop its U200 series. The U230 will be very much like the previously released U210, which ran Vista. The only notable differences are the new operating system, and slightly faster AMD Radeon GPU.
The netbook will come with the AMD Neo X2 MV40 CPU at 1.6GHz, up to 4 GB of RAM, an AMD Radeon HD3200, and VGA/HDMI out. There’s none of that Windows 7 Starter here - the PC will come with Windows 7 Home Premium. Pricing is still a mystery, though. The old U210 is going for $429.99, so one would hope that MSI can get the price in under $500.
