MSI Wind 12 U200 review

 

MSI updates the Wind netbook with a bigger screen and a CULV CPU

CULV CPU ; Good battery life

Keyboard flexes in use ; Integrated GPU

A good machine that although this will not break any records in 3DMark, it will keep you up to date with your emails while out and about

MSI Wind 12 U200-038UK review

 

The MSI Wind 12 U200 is an inexpensive step up from most netbooks, but its imperfect design limits its appeal to those on a strict budget.

MSI Wind12 U200

 

Thought all netbooks were the same? Well, think again; The latest installment from MSI's Wind range of netbooks offers something a bit different for those of you looking for the extra speed and power of a notebook, without compromising the great...

There’s no doubt that the MSI Wind 12 U200 has a bit more about it than the average netbook, but it’s also more expensive. Is it worth the money? Well, I think so. If you like the portability that netbooks offer but want more speed and power to go with...

MSI Wind U200

 

MSI's follow-up to its best-selling netbook isn't a netbook at all Since the original MSI Wind U100 was released two years ago it has been copied by almost every other netbook manufacturer. It ...

MSI Wind 12 U200 laptop review

 

An excellent and good value compromise between netbook and laptop

Cheap, stacks of features, fast and reliable

Keyboard needs a battering to register keystrokes, not the prettiest of laptops

MSI - Wind U200

 

The emergence of the netbook means that there's now plenty of choice in the portable computing market, allowing consumers to choose just the right balance between power and portability without paying over the odds. Though ...

MSI may be sitting on the fence somewhat with the U200, which isn't powerful enough to handle intensive graphics processing or gaming but gives the ‘netbook' market a shot in the arm with a higher resolution display and a more powerful processor. This,...

Review: MSI Wind U200 netbook

 

A slim and attractive laptop with plenty of processing power

Attractive design; decent processor; high-resolution display; good specifications

Keyboard takes quite a bit of getting used to; lack of shortcut keys and additional controls; gloss screen prone to dust and glare

MSI has done a good job of covering some middle ground with the U200 and, although it will struggle with gaming or intensive graphics processing tasks, it's more than good enough to handle just about everything else you can throw at it. It's slim,...

MSI Wind 12 U200 netbook

 

MSI's Wind 12 U200 is the first netbook we've seen to ship with Windows 7 straight out of the box. However, with a 12.1in screen and an Intel Core 2 S...

1366x768-resolution screen, HDMI, fast application performance, excellent keyboard, long battery life, ships with Windows 7

Balance is a little off, CPU can't handle multi-threading

The MSI Wind 12 U200 is bigger and more powerful than a typical netbook, yet it's still small and easy to travel with. We love its keyboard, its battery life is good and its CPU is relatively powerful. Our main complaint is that it's a top-heavy unit,...

MSI Wind12 U200

 

1366x768 screen makes a big difference for usability. Good expansion if you're willing to install hardware yourself. More power than netbooks.

Touchpad feels a bit small.

The MSI Wind12 U200 sits in that comfortable space between netbook and laptop — if you have modest needs, but still want a decent screen size and a bit more power than Intel's Atom offers, the U200 might be the laptop you're looking for.
