MSI Debuts N280-Equipped Wind U100 PLUS Netbook

Not much has changed about the Wind U100 PLUS compared to the U100 we burned in earlier this year, but when something's hot, you might as well strike (again), right? MSI's certainly agreeing with that mantra, pushing out a mildly refined version of its hit netbook that takes advantage of Intel's 1.66GHz Atom N280 and adds a few other small niceties not found on the original.

In addition to Imperial Black, Angelic White and Regal Red, two brand new colors (Rose Champagne and Metallic Blue) are being added to Wind U100 PLUS product line. Outside of that and the new CPU, most everything else will feel totally familiar. There's a 10" LCD, GMA950 graphics chipset, up to 2GB of DDR2 RAM, a 1024x600 resolution panel, 160GB (2.5") HDD, 4-in-1 card reader, VGA output, headphone jack, Ethernet port, audio input, three USB 2.0 connectors and a 1.3MP webcam. The full specifications are posted below, but don't go looking for a price or release date.
