MSI Wind U100 Netbook Review

4 November 2009
  • Summary: Verdict In the end, the MSI Wind U100 is a fantastic netbook and I gladly accept the tradeoff of less performance, smaller screen, and smaller keyboard for the significantly improved portability the machine offers. Most users will find that they can easily work from the MSI Wind U100 on the road and at home with minimal tradeoffs compared to a traditional notebook.
  • Pros: Good battery life, Powerful enough for general computer use, Very portable
  • Cons: Track pad to close to keyboard, Poor speaker volume

MSI Wind U100 Review

8 August 2009
  • Conclusion: Move over, Asus: MSI has skipped the imitation game that most other manufacturers have played so far and actually bested the Eee with the Wind. Its $550 price tag may make it $150 more than the original Eee, but the refinement and features MSI has added make it well worth the premium, especially when Asus’ 10-inch Eee runs for $700. For the moment, MSI’s Wind definitively blows away the competition.
  • Pros: Bright and spacious 10-inch screen; lightweight and portable; powerful
  • Cons: Three-cell battery may be inadequate; build quality could be a tad better

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Netbooks are the biggest selling category in the computer industry right now for several reasons. The poor global economy is the big reason consumers are flocking to netbooks. I don't think that is the only reason that netbooks continue to post such massive growth, I think that consumers are finally realizing that they don't have to use the most powerful notebook available to do the majority of what they need.

MSI Wind U100 Netbook

5 January 2009
  • Conclusion: The MSI Wind U100, despite the new model designation, is still the same netbook that launched last summer in response to the Eee PC. While the chassis and basic design hasn't changed much, the Wind has picked up a few handy updates over the last couple months that help keep it competitive with the onslaught of new netbook offerings. The Wind offers a sturdy chassis that will take your constant handling in stride.
  • Pros: High Build Quality, Very Portable, Automated Overclocking, Bright 10.2" LED Backlit Screen, Small A/C Adapter
  • Cons: Cramped Sentilic Touchpad, Annoying Touchpad Buttons

MSI Wind U100 review

24 October 2008
  • Summary: Larger storage, better networking and the all-important extended battery life make the revised U100 a winner. Combined with the more attractive choice of colours, free carry bag in the box, and an extended warranty to 2 years, we feel the original MSI Wind U100 is not just the first Wind, it also breezes into first place.

MSI Wind U100 Review

1 October 2008
  • Summary: Overall, the MSI Wind is a great laptop and it lies in between the Acer One and the ASUS EeePC 1000H in price. In terms of features, it lags behind the Eee PC 1000H, but the 6-cell version of the MSI Wind is priced at Rs 29,000. This makes it a little expensive as compared to the MSI Wind. As long as the EeePC 6-cell is priced around the same as the MSI Wind, the Eee PC remains the better option. If you can get the Wind for over Rs 1,500 cheaper, it's worth considering.

MSI Wind U100 Netbook

19 September 2008
  • Summary: It'll be very hard to actually find a fault with the MSI Wind. Honest, I'm not joking. Having played with both the Asus EeePC 1000 and the MSI Wind, I would say that both of them are very similar. The only thing which I can think of, which could affect consumers decision is the 3-Cell battery. Although it gives 2-3 hours of continuous use, I would have prefered it to be a 6-Cell battery ... which Asus have included in their newer EeePCs.
  • Pros: - Uses Intel's ATOM CPU@ 1.6Ghz, - 1Gb of DDR2 ram, - 120Gb SATA HDD, - Good build quality, - Good features, - Wireless/WiFi, - 10" anti-glare screen, - 4-in-1 card reader, - 3 USB ports, - D-Sub for extrenal monitor
  • Cons: - Only a 3-Cell battery

MSI Wind U100 review

26 August 2008
  • Summary: There are some solid reasons to consider MSI's Wind. It's small and fairly light (about 1kg), and it's sturdy enough to take a beating. But other solidly-built mini-notebooks are just around the corner, including Lenovo's S10 and probably an entry from Dell this Autumn. If you can't wait, the MSI Wind is a solid recommendation to buy now.

MSI's Wind U100 netbook

21 August 2008
  • Summary: Our discussion of the MSI Wind U100 must unfortunately end with its least attractive feature: the price. Despite the fact that the system is well-rounded and only truly falling short in the battery life department, its price threatens to sink the whole endeavor. With a suggested retail price of $499 for the 3-cell unit we reviewed and $549 for a version with a 6-cell battery, the Wind is a hard sell given its competition.
