MSI finally gives us an overhauled version of its Wind netbook, but can it still hold its own?

MSI Wind U160

 

The fervour surrounding netbooks seems to be abating, as tablets rear their heads and fight for the same space, a middle space, between the phone and the laptop proper. When we think of a netbook, the MSI Wind always comes to mind and here we see the...

Design, keyboard is pretty good, battery life

Some left-side keyboard flex, glossy screen and finish will attract reflections and fingerprints, only 1GB RAM, no trackpad shortcuts

If there is one particular failing that the MSI Wind U160 has as a netbook, it is that it only comes with 1GB RAM, meaning you'll be wanting to upgrade almost as soon as you get it home (about £30). Otherwise there is little on offer to differentiate...

MSI Wind U160 review

 

MSI's 10' netbook ticks all the right boxes

Good features ; Great portability

Ugly stickers

Even hiding the body under logos can't make us dislike this excellent netbook

MSI Wind U160 review

 

Like the MSI Wind U135 netbook, the MSI Wind U160 is also based on the newer Pine Trail Intel Atom N450 processor and it comes with more RAM and hard drive space compared to the Wind U135.

The MSI Wind U160 is the best 10-inch MSI Wind netbook till date. It has good looks, decent features, nice keyboard and touchpad, and very good battery life. We recommend the Wind U160 over the Asus Eee PC 1008P because of its lower price point and its...

A stylish and sleek netbook with long battery life, but strong competition holds it back from winning an award.

We can recommend the Wind U160, it is very well built, has a battery life which exceeds 10 hours and most importantly it won’t break your back carrying it around. If you want something that looks a little nicer than the netbooks normally associated in...

MSI Wind U160 netbook review

 

A Pine Trail sub-notebook with a sleek new design

New design; thinner build; better keyboard

Lacks the bells and whistles of similar netbooks; larger base than quoted; bulky battery addition; bulky screen hinge; premium cost

Netbooks traditionally fall into the realm of cheap looking and cheap feeling, and are effectively a low-price equivalent of a laptop, but the MSI Wind U160 looks a lot sleeker and more professional than the older MSI netbooks. There is a premium for...

Slimline Pine Trail netbook

New design, thinner build, better keyboard

Doesn't have all the bells and whistles of similar netbooks, larger base than quoted, bulky battery addition and bulky screen hinge

, the U160, boasts a new design for its Wind line of affordable sub-notebook computers, while at the same time heralding its second Pine Trail netbook model.
