msi wind u120

MSI will be launching their MSI Wind U120, somehow a twin brother of U100 since they have almost same specs under the hood, except that U120 is going to have 3.5G technology (as i calls it). In November, there’s gonna be another on the GO PC like the Asus Eee PC 901 Go. With 3.5G, all you’re gonna need is an unlimited data plan, a monstrous battery backup, and a lot of finger hand and eye exercise and you’ll be happy.

This all we learn from Digitimes. Oh, it’s priced at $552. In the coming months, let’s expect rebates and discounts, shall we?

How to Upgrade MSI Storage on MSI Wind and Eee PC 1000H

Written by Aldrin Cantos on September 16, 2008 – 6:25 am -

Netbooks are the current BIG thing in the gadget galaxy, like every BIG manufacturers of electronic devices are jumping in the bandwagon trying to get a bite of the pie. Netbooks are small, “so much ultra-portable”, fast, reliable and most importantly, very affordable (not all). When first generation netbooks came out, users have been satisfied of most of the features, but annoyances about the very limited disk space was heard from the majority. The next generation of the latter tried to address this issue but with extra cost. But some people prefer to upgrade disk space themselves, at least they know and everyone knows they can do it. And these guys, I really admire their works because their talents is something that I am deprived of having.

MSI Wind ‘Rumored’ to increase price by $50

Written by Aldrin Cantos on August 6, 2008 – 8:48 am -

If you’re the type who waits for price-cuts before buying an item, you’d probably not like buying MSI Wind anymore for it’s rumored to add $50 on their current prices.

According to ULPCS, MSI is unable to obtain more components to sustain production. Seems like they cannot avail cheap components they used to have before.

This is exactly what I thought to happen upon knowing that MSI Wind has the lowest price amongst netbooks. But the good thing is that MSI Wind will still have fair price compare to others.

MSI mini desktop

After their success of summoning the MSI Wind, a better competitor of the Asus Eee PC, MSI has yet another promising child to take down the Eee PC Desktop.

MSI has introduced their MSI Wind Desktops at Computex last month. The rig will sport 1GB RAM, 160GB hard disk, DVD drive on board and WiFi and will come with Windows XP. The business version will come to Europe and Asia this month, but the consumer version will ship by September. The representative said that this will not be sold in US, but US based consumers can still avail through their online store.

MSI Wind available in a few, battery is not encouraging

Written by Aldrin Cantos on June 27, 2008 – 7:22 am -

MSI did not hit the original ship date but it will be out later. However, there’s some issues that customer might not want to hear. The MSI Wind will come out packed with 3-cell battery and no higher.

According to LaptopMag:

On June 27, the MSI Wind will be available from a slew of online retailers, including Amazon.com, Newegg.com, MWave.com, Buy.com, and Zipzoom.com. However, Due to a battery shortage out of South Korea, the first batch of Winds will blow out with a 3-cell rather than a 6-cell battery for the reduced price of $479.99. Our review unit was bundled with a 6-cell battery and had an MSRP of $499.99.

A quick poll at the source’s site tells that customers are still interested to buy the MSI Wind but not until higher capacity batteries come out.

A quick glance at Amazon and it’s confirmed it’s really not out yet. In a few hours, maybe.
