MSI Wind U135 Netbook ReviewWe have been fans of MSI's Wind series of netbooks. They have consistently rivaled Asus' Eee PC range and HP's Mini line, and the competition has been good for the industry. MSI's Wind line has remained relatively consistent over the years, with the design staying mostly the same, but the internals progressively getting more advanced with newer hardware platforms from Intel and fresher operating systems from Microsoft (and Linux, truth be told). The Wind U135 is the first major contender in MSI's netbook line to ship with Intel's Pine Trail platform within, which means that it finally ditches the aging Atom N270/N280 CPU in favor of the newer Atom N450...

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.
