MSI has unveiled three new netbooks at a press conference in France; the MSI Wind U115, U110 and U120H.
The MSI Wind U110 will arrive in 2009, it will feature the Intel Atom Z530 1.6GHz processor and the Intel SCH US15W (Poulsbo) chipset which uses less power. The netbook has 1GB DDR2, 10" LCD display with 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, 120/160/250GB SATA HDD, 4-in-1 memory card reader, three USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, mic/headphone ports, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 EDR, VGA output and a 1.3MP or 2MP webcam. The system weighs 1.1kg, measures 260 x 180 x 19-31.5mm and features a 6-cell battery which should result in a battery life of up to 8-10 hours.
The specifications of the MSI Wind U115 are very similar to the U110, the main difference seems to be that the U115 has a hybrid hard disk with flash memory and optional upgrade to 2GB DDR2 memory. The U115 will feature 80/120/160GB HDDs with 8/16/32GB SSDs.
Last but not least is the MSI Wind U120H, this netbook will feature a 3.5G HSDPA data network module from Ericsson. It will feature a Intel Atom 1.6GHz processor, 945GSE + ICH7-M chipset, 1GB DDR2 memory, 10" LCD with 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, 80/120/160GB SATA HDD, 4-in-1 memory card reader, VGA-output, three USB 2.0 ports, mic/headphone ports, Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and 1.3/2MP webcam. The netbook measures 260mm x 180mm x 9.75-33mm and just like the other two models it weighs just 1.1kg. The battery pack features 6-cells, but MSI doesn't list the battery life for this model.
