  • 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.

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
