MSI Wind U230 Now Shipping

After about 4 months of waiting, MSI have now started to ship the MSI Wind U230 that we mentioned back in November 2009. The new netbook computer comes running an AMD processor and has a 12.1 inch HD LCD display.

The new MSI Wind U230 was designed to replace the U210 netbook that MSI say was a favourite among MSI users.

The Wind U230 weighs 3.3 pounds and comes in two different variates. The first is the U230-033 with the other model being the U230-040. Each of the models ship with 2GB of DDR2 memory along with a 6 cell battery and for the OS, each run Windows 7 Home Premium.

Each device has a 12.1 inch screen that can display HD with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. Each has an ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics card which is a step up from the regular Intel GMA chipsets netbooks use.

Other features include a 4 in 1 memory card reader, VGA port, 1.3 megapixel webcam and a HDMI port. Three USB 2.0 ports are also included as well as the usual Wireless connectivity.

Each netbook is available now with the differences being that the U230-033 model has a smaller 250GB hard drive and a different AMD processor. The U230-040 model has a 320GB hard drive and a quicker processor.
