The MSI Wind also comes preinstalled with Windows XP.
Summary: The MSI Wind is the latest netbook-style computer to capitalize on the low-cost, light-power laptop frenzy that kicked off with the Eee Pc and the Asus Netbook. With a starting price of just $479 and a standard screen size of 10 inches, the MSI Wind netbook is attempting to push the expectations of budget travel laptops to new heights. The compact MSI Wind comes with 1GB of memory and a 1.6 GHz Intel processor, perfect for web browsing and e-mailing on the go.
