  • Excerpt: Intel has owned the netbook market since the whole segment kicked off back in 2007. Intel was the first out of the gate with a cheap processor that was specifically aimed at the low cost netbook machines. The Intel Atom line proved to be a very popular processor and sold in droves as consumers flocked to the Atom line and netbooks in general in the face of the poor economy.

MSI Wind 12 U230 review

Techworld
26 April 2010
  • Summary: The MSI Wind 12 U230 netbook has a lot to like, but its battery life - 3hrs, 48 mins in our tests - is a dealbreaker. The average battery life for netbooks is about 7hrs. It's unfortunate, considering the Wind12 U230's strong general performance and portable design. But being mobile means not being tethered to a power outlet; and in the configuration we tested, the Wind12 U230 lacked staying power.

Legit Reviews
12 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Since netbooks have increased in popularity over the past year, the standard screen size of ten inches has been a hindering factor for many PC users. MSI has recently released their next generation of Wind netbooks which they have deemed the Wind 12 series that all feature a twelve-inch screen.

Netbook Review: MSI Wind12 U230

HardwareCentral
25 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Under the hood, along with a faintly audible cooling fan, is an AMD Athlon X2 L335 processor -- a 1.6GHz dual-core chip with dual 256K Level 2 caches -- joined by 2GB of DDR2 memory; an ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics controller that borrows 128MB of system RAM; and a 320GB Seagate hard disk. (As with other netbooks and ultraportables, there is no optical drive.) That adds up to performance that, while not desktop-class dazzling, is noticeably perkier than most netbooks'.

Review of MSI Wind12 U230 Netbook

Testfreaks blog
19 March 2010
  • Conclusion: If this is where netbooks are headed then this is a good thing. The Wind12 is priced not much higher than some other Atom based netbooks out there but it’s much more powerful making it more useful overall. The Wind12 US230 is a great choice if you’re looking for a new netbook, it offers the portability of a netbook but the power of a notebook in the same form factor. The Wind12 is nicely made and it seems durable.
  • Pros: Lightweight and well made, Dual core AMD CPU let’s you do more things at once, Nice large keyboard, Rather large touch pad, Small and protable like a netbook but powereful like a notebook
  • Cons: Short battery life, Something wrong with built-in camera, pointing too low, Trial software, Norton and a lot of stuff installed, Glossy screen

MSI Wind 12 U230: AMD Congo takes the fight to Intel CULV

HEXUS
27 November 2009
  • Conclusion: AMD's Congo platform is what Yukon should have been. Offering dual-core CPU performance that's better matched against Intel's ultra-low-voltage Core 2 Duo parts, the platform makes for an interesting argument when priced between Intel's Atom-powered netbooks and CULV-powered notebooks. GPU performance is good thanks to the introduction of ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3200-series graphics. Though, good is a relative term, as 3D gaming remains suited to just basic, casual use.

  • Summary: Ноутбук очень приятно удивил практически по всем объективным и субъективным критериям оценки. Собственно, почему удивил? Автор ни в коем случае не имеет каких-либо предубеждений к тем или иным брендам, но все же когда во всех отношениях приятный ноутбук получаешь от компании, давно зарекомендовавшей себя именно как производитель ноутбуков, будь то HP, Acer, Toshiba и т.д., это воспринимается как должное.
