MSI Starts Shipping 12-Inch Wind U210 in the U.S. Is it Still a Netbook?

We're not sure whether to call it a netbook, ultra-portable, or just a notebook, but whatever it is, MSI's 12-inch Wind U210 mobile PC has blown into the U.S.

You won't find an Intel Atom processor inside, and instead the U210 comes equipped with AMD's Athlon NEO MV-40 chip. Driving the 12.1-inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display is AMD's ATI Radeon X1250 integrated graphics.

Other specs include 2GB of RAM, a comparatively spacious 250GB had drive, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, HDMI output, and Windows Vista Home Premium.

Probably the cheapest you'll find it online is at Amazon, who's calling it a netbook and selling the black version for $430 shipped ($474 for the white chassis). That's about in line with a higher end netbook, and combined with the advertised 5-hour battery life, MSI may have a winner on its hands.
