Conclusion: The MSI Wind U160 is yet another representative of the netbook sector. The 10 inch device with a WSVGA display and a maximum resolution of 1024x600 pixels doesn't only look great, but was also able to win the much desired " iF Product Design Award 2010 ". The Wind U160 is available in two colors, which are Jet Black or, like our test sample, in a successful Fancy Gold .
Pros: Long battery life, Design and looks, Bluetooth, Workmanship, As known, there is no accounting for taste. But MSI Wind U160 has literally brought us a fresh wind in the black-white monotony of notebooks and netbooks.
Cons: Sound, Uneven display illumination, Constantly running fan, Temperature under load, Design is balanced, workmanship is suitable. The recommended retail price of 349.00 euro is just. Just like the good battery life. The only thing missing now is a better fan control paired with cooler temperatures under load.
Conclusion: As a netbook, MSI's Wind U160 has almost all of the right ingredients. The system's small, thin, ultra-light, very easy on the eye and comfortable in use. Performance is exactly what you'd expect from an Atom-powered netbook; it's perfectly adequate for basic tasks such as word processing and light web browsing, and battery life - albeit short of MSI's own claims - is excellent.
Summary: The MSI Wind U160 ($379) isn’t perfect—its battery juts out of the back and its keys are smallish—but on the whole it’s a strong choice in the 10-inch category. This machine offers especially long battery life, good performance, and one of the lightest designs you’ll find.
