MSI Wind U115 Hybrid

CNET
18 June 2009
  • Summary: Full marks to MSI for trying to do something different with the MSI Wind U115 Hybrid, but, despite the excellent battery life, we're not convinced there's quite enough on offer to justify the high price tag
  • Pros: Great battery life; good screen; impressive keyboard.
  • Cons: Expensive; tired-looking design.

MSI Wind U115 Hybrid review

22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: MSI's Wind U115 Hybird is so-called because it has an 8GB solid-state disk (SSD) and a traditional 160GB hard disk. The idea is that Windows XP is loaded on to the faster, more reliable SSD, while the slower, cheaper hard disk can be used for storing files.

MSI Wind U115 review

PC Advisor
22 July 2009
  • Summary: For travellers — or anyone who wants to work for long periods of time away from a power outlet — the MSI Wind U115 is perfect. Its battery life is the longest we've seen in an Intel Atom-based netbook, lasting well over five hours.

MSI Wind U115 Hybrid notebook

Pocket Lint
29 May 2009
  • Conclusion: On paper, MSI claimed the battery life was 12 hours of use whilst in Eco mode, where the U115 relies solely on the SSD. In reality, we managed to get a good 8 hours of life out of the latest Wind netbook, with Wi-Fi on and many applications running at once.
  • Pros: Both an SSD and HDD based netbook, 10-inch screen, good keyboard
  • Cons: Loses power saving settings easily, not a unique looking device: too close to the HP netbook for comfort, price

MSI Wind U115 Hybrid

ZDNet
6 March 2009
  • Summary: The Wind is still one of the better 10-inch laptops in the mix, although due to its substandard trackpad and high price, we'd suggest the HP Mini 2140 or Asus Eee PC 1000HE would be a better choice.
  • Pros: Excellent keyboard, More efficient Atom processor, Good screen size, Relatively quiet, Hybrid storage offers the best of both worlds, No useless trial software
  • Cons: USB Ethernet implementation can be confusing, Sentelic touch pad falls short of other offerings
