  • Conclusion: Affordable netbooks cannot get any cheaper than the MSI range of mini laptops. The new MSI U135 is a 10 inch laptop that replaces their older 10’ inch laptop series. Though the dimension remain the same, the newest features include an Intel’s Atom N450 1.66GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and 160GB of hard disk space. Due to the efficient, low power consuming atom processor, the battery life for this laptop is above average and is impressive for true mobility.
  • Pros: Decent Battery Life, Capable touchpad, Fantastic Keyboard
  • Cons: Ugly Design,  Low Resolution.

Review MSI Wind U135 Netbook

27 November 2010
  • Conclusion: "The best design offers ultimate ease and joy." - is what MSI's Chief Industrial Designer is said to have stated in connection with the Wind U135. Well, we can basically verify the simplicity of handling the netbook, but joy on design is an issue as such. Our black prototype's great tendency to smudge smothers the initial exhilaration very quickly, in our opinion.
  • Pros: Attractive design, Very good case stability, User-friendly keyboard, Very good viewing angle stability, Low case temperatures, Low price, The display, apart from the reflective surface. A comparatively good viewing angle stability, good rates and a subjectively brilliant color representation speak for the screen, at least as long as you're indoors.
  • Cons: Case susceptible for grime, Center of gravity too far back, Average VGA connection quality, Reflective display, Perpetual fan presence, Speakers' poor sound quality, On the one side, a matt display for better netbook ergonomics outdoors and on the other, a fan control update. A few degrees more of case temperature would have been better than an always existent fan noise.

MSI Wind U135 review

30 May 2010
  • Summary: The MSI Wind U135 usually costs about $330 and it’s a good value at that price. But at $305 the netbook is even more attractive. It combines a good keyboard with Intel’s Atom N450 processor which offers more than enough power for casual computer users who don’t need to watch HD video or edit enormous images in Photoshop. But I’m not really that big a fan of the touchpad which lacks support for multitouch gestures.

MSI Wind U135 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
23 December 2009
  • Summary: The MSI Wind U135 looks and performs well for a netbook, keeping pace with its competitors. Its price of $329 also makes it less expensive than the ASUS 1005PE ($379) and even the budget conscious Samsung N130 ($349). However, battery life takes a step back, especially considering that the Atom N450 is supposed to offer greater endurance than the previous generation of Atom chips.

  • Summary: MSI's Wind Millions Special Edition U135 is a netbook that looks good and is comfortable to use. It has a balance issue that we've seen in previous Wind netbooks, but we like the U135's build quality, design and features.
  • Pros: Excellent keyboard, runs cool, vibrant screen, 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth, nice design
  • Cons: Balance is off, only 1GB of RAM, not easily upgradeable
