Swirling around inside MSI's newest Wind U270 notebook is AMD's "Zacate" E-350 dual-core processor. Zacate is the codename, of course, the E-350 being AMD's first fully integrated CPU-GPU combination, otherwise known as an APU, or Accelerated Processing Unit. And if you're stockpiling buzzwords, go ahead and add "Fusion" to the mix, which... Read more...
You didn't go and believe all the doomsayers who said that tablets would kill off the netbook market, did you? Good, because if you did, you'd miss out on MSI's new U160XM, the company's newest addition to its Wind netbook line, which MSI describes as "gorgeous, slender, and light." It's also well equipped (for a netbook), boasting an Intel... Read more...
If the Wind U230, and its 12.1" display, was just a little too big for your netbook needs, help is soon on the way. MSI has today announced their newest notebook, the U230 Light. It's an interesting one, mostly because it resembles the original in so many ways, but the most obvious difference is the smaller (just barely) 11.6" LCD. The new... Read more...
It's getting difficult to discern one netbook release from another, which is our way of saying if you've seen one, you've seen them all. Until now. While the internal hardware is standard fare for a modern day netbook, MSI's latest entrant -- the Wind U135DX -- adds a bit of style to the genre by coating its latest netbook with its own "Color...

MSI usually delivers new machines at a fairly regular clip, but this is just insanity. The good kind of insanity. At the Computex trade show in Taiwan, MSI decided to showcase six major series of notebooks, with a grand total of 30 models making an appearance. The stylish F Series, multi-media centric G Series, handheld Wind Pad series and... Read more...
MSI has an itch, and obviously the only solution is to just ship more machines. After announcing the availability of the X-Slim X360 and the Wind U160 earlier in the week, the company has now said that two versions of the Wind12 U230 are also making their way out to consumers. This machine takes the place of the... Read more...
We 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... Read more...

MSI announced the new Wind U110 ECO netbook. Featuring best in class battery Life, the Wind U110 ECO offers up to 15 + hours of untethered computing power with its 9-cell battery. The Wind U110 weighs just 3.2 pounds and measures just 1.24 inches thick at its widest point. It comes with a one-year warranty. Featuring the Intel Atom Processor... Read more...
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... Read more...
We had a clue as to what MSI's ultra thin X-Slim duo would look like, but beyond that, most everything else was veiled in mystery. Until now. This week at the CTIA Wireless Expo in Las Vegas, MSI has taken the wraps off the full specification list on the X-Slim X320, X-Slim X340 and Wind U123, all of which we'll detail below. As for the X320,... Read more...
Maybe we're suffering from delusions, but does MSI's newest all-in-one PC look eerily similar to Apple's previous line of Cinema Displays? (Hint: yes.) That small detail aside, the Wind Top AE1900 does look like a pretty stellar machine, particularly for those who value style over all else. The all white machine dons a glossy coat and features...

Man, if MSI doesn't stop popping out new notebooks, people are seriously going to have a tough time deciding whether to jump in now or wait all the way until tomorrow to see what's "just around the bend." As the flood of new MSI machines amazingly continues, the U110 ECO has become the freshest of the fresh for the moment. Not surprisingly,... Read more...
MSI did the right thing by beefing up its Wind U100 with a six-cell battery and a 160GB hard drive, but in doing so, it took a fair amount of thunder away from the machine's successor. The Wind U120 keeps the same 10 inch LCD, 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 1.3 megapixel camera and 4-in-1 card reader, though it does include Bluetooth as... Read more...
The folks at MSI have been cooking up a number of new netbook products, as we'll certainly see at CES this week. MSI has released a cheaper 8.9" version of the Wind, the U90, which is currently available in parts of Europe, Australia and Canada. However, at least for the time being, the original MSI Wind, now dubbed the Wind U100, is still... Read more...
Immediately after ASUS launched the Eee PC into an unsuspecting notebook market over a year ago, the short term answer from competitors was, well, nothing, save perhaps for the XO-1 from the OLPC organization. At the time, there was still speculation about whether or not anyone would even be interested in a low power, low cost, ultraportable... Read more...
When pimping Windows Vista prior to its release, Microsoft called it "the most secure OS ever." Of course, software is just software, and there are bugs in anything. And on Friday, security firm Phion AG announced they had discovered a TCP/IP stack buffer overflow. As researcher Thomas Unterleitner indicated: Since this buffer overflow overwrites... Read more...
In an attempt to gain a stronger foothold in internet "cloud", Microsoft has revamped their Windows Live services with new applications and third-party integration. By providing a hub for web access to e-mail, instant messaging, photos, and other web applications, Microsoft hopes to enhance the consumer experience by consolidating... Read more...
Though obviously Microsoft has taken a fair amount of heat regarding Windows Vista, there's probably a directly proportional level of hype on their next mainstream OS, Windows 7.  Projected by some to be the OS that Vista should have been, and still by others to be nothing more than Vista on steroids (perhaps just a six-pack of Red Bull,...

In an interview with Laptop, ASUS' CEO, Jerry Shen, confirmed that ASUS will introduce a new Eee PC sometime in the second half of 2009 that will have a touch screen and run Windows 7. Given that Microsoft has said it plans general availability of the new operating system around January 2010, there’s a bit of a discrepancy here. Promising... Read more...
Since the codename for the next release of Windows was announced, many of us have wondered what the actual name would be. Well, it turns out that the codename for the next version of Windows, Windows 7, is going to be the actual name for the product. And in what is somewhat of a passing of the torch, the announcement was made not on the Windows... Read more...
We're not quite sure why anyone would want to do this, but a Norwegian programmer claims to have created an application that allows you to run the Windows Mobile operating system on your iPhone. The programmer, Erik Kristiansen, showed off his app in action at the recent myPhone2008 convention in Las Vegas. Kristiansen's application operates... Read more...
