MSI Wind U135 Netbook Review

4 thumbs up

 
We also ran the MSI Wind U135 through Futuremark‚Äôs latest system performance metric, PCMark Vantage. This benchmark suite creates a host of different usage scenarios to simulate different types of workloads including High Definition TV and movie playback and manipulation, gaming, image editing and manipulation, music compression, communications, and productivity. We like the fact that most of the tests are multi-threaded as well, in order to exploit the additional resources offered by multi-core processors.



This is one of the first netbooks with Windows 7 Starter that we've been able to run PCMark Vantage on. Until recently, the software wasn't capable of dealing with the omission of certain MPEG2 codecs (a limitation of Windows 7 Starter edition), and so the software would refuse to run. A recent build enabled the testing to continue without relying on those missing codecs, so we're able to present this data to you. The TV & Movies benchmark failed on Win7 Starter, however. With this new build of PCMark Vantage, we should be able to start compiling a database of Windows 7 Starter scores over the course of the next year.

The MSI components all together from my point of view anyway seem to be well thought out, and generally solid products.

Lol Killer you might be surprised. I have very large hands (10" palm to tip of index, and am 6'3" tall), I had someone send me a netbook to repair I could actually use it. It was one of the small one's to, smaller than this one. While I would not want one of the smaller one for personal use a 10-12 would be fine I am almost positive. Also remember a netbook is more mobility and extended usage over a period of time to, not for typing a book on although the guy in the BK commercial (I have such tiny hands), a child or many females would not have any issues at all with them. I was just surprised I could use it decently well (although it was pecking if I remember correctly, it was not hard), a 10 or bigger would be fine I think.
