MSI jacks up Wind prices

Posted on Thursday, July 31 2008 @ 00:00:36 CEST by

The Tech Report noticed the MSI Wind notebooks have become more expensive due to rising material costs. The $479.99 MSI Wind U100 with 3-cell battery now costs $499.99 and the one with a 6-cell battery which was launched for $499.99 now has a MSRP of $549.99. But that's not all - it seems most shops are charging even more:
As Laptop Magazine points out, a hike to $549.99 cancels out the U100's pricing advantage over Asus' Eee PC 1000H. The 1000H has similar specs (a 10" 1024x600 display, 1GB of DDR2 RAM, an 80GB hard drive, and a six-cell battey), and it currently goes for $549.99 at Newegg. But that's not the whole story.

As it turns out, many online retailers are actually charging more than $550 for the six-cell Wind U100. Mwave lists the diminutive notebook for $599.99, while Microtel asks $599, and ZipZoomFly demands $559. Folks who ordered the system before the hike aren't necessarily better off, either. Laptop Magazine learned that Buy.com actually cancelled $499.99 orders when MSI announced the price increase "to avoid being de-authorized by this manufacturer."
