Excerpt: After three days of hard research, I ended up buying this netbook because it was discounted, but I hit the jackpot. This little netbook has everything that I need and more. It has a huge harddrive (160 GB), full size keyboard, big 10in+ display, and Windows XP. Its not perfect: only has a 3 cell battery and can be laggy at times, but I still think that at $279, I think I got a steel.
Excerpt: I bought an MSI wind U100 about two month ago for my general use at home. The design's cute, super portable, and works well for internet surfing and general office work. At home, it works pretty well as a home PC with an external moniter, or if you've already got the 1st desktop PC and need a 2nd one with mobility, it's a perfect one. I've tested some of the graphic softwares(photoshop, illustrator, dreamweaver etc.), but it's a little too heavy for 1GB memory.
Fantastic netbook, though newer models might be better

Excerpt: The MSI Wind is an amazing Netbook. I am a student at the University of California at Berkeley and I use it to take notes in lectures every day. It is very small and lightweight for easy transportation (does not take any more room than a notebook would in your backpack). However, even though it is small, it is still plenty big enough so that you will not hurt your eyes while typing notes.
Excerpt: The MSI Wind U one hundred notebook netbook is the best laptop available. You will love it besides the fact that it does not have a CD/DVD drive. It is portable, has great memory, nice keyboard, great hard drive, and most of all its durable. This product works it really does work. It only has a three cell battery but it is better than nothing or no laptop at all. You will love this laptop, I use it everyday with no hint of problems and amazing results.
I own one of these and would't trade it for the world.

Excerpt: A fantastic little laptop that serves all the purposes a casual user would need while out and about. Wireless and bluetooth build in, available with a spacious hard drive and enough memory to run any applications. Sturdy and easy to carry, this model slips quitly into most any bag, even those NOT made for laptops. Near full sized keyboard will have you typing full speed in no time. Available with 6 and 9 cell batteries this laptop will run for upwards of 8 or 9 hours...
Excerpt: If you are in the market for a netbook, this is a great chioce. I needed a quick replacement when my laptop crashed and opted for a netbook. Unlike others, I DO miss the big screen. I got used to the smaller keyboard, but the screen just annoys me sometimes. Most times, I dont notice, but there a certain times when the screen just isn't big enough. The things I do love. It is so light. I still can't get over how light it is. It is so much easier to carry around.
Excerpt: The MSI Wind is a great netbook. Running XP, it's really nimble and has a beefy hard drive. The touchpad is really intelligently done and integrated well. The whole package just feels solid, even without a way to lock the keyboard closed. Battery life hasn't been bad for me, but I've always been paranoid about it.
Super-light, 10' screen, lived through spilled milk!!

Excerpt: The MSI Wind U100 is a wonderful, tiny, tough laptop computer. I got a Wind U100-439US for my teenage daughter in December 2008 and have been admiring it ever since. It has been carried everywhere my daughter goes (including skating, biking, and the beach), it really has the advertised 3-hour battery life and has even survived a glass of milk!! (More about the spill & recovery at the end.
Excerpt: I slaved over reviews for netbooks when I was in the market for one. And I mean slaved. It was pretty much all I did during my waking hours -- read up on netbook specs and reviews. So I had some pretty high hopes for the msi wind when I bought it in spring of '08. They have lived up to and exceeded them. It feels bizarre to me that I've had it so long without any problems.
Excerpt: The MSI wind is a great netbook. I've used it for over a year and it's still working great. Can't say the same for HP or Asus, I find those to slow down a lot over time. When buying the netbook, I compared price, specifications, and took advice from another friend who already owned an MSI. The specifications match up or exceed others in the same price point. An Atom processor is absolutely necessary.
