The MSI Wind is a late comer to the netbook market, but this delay made it even more delightful to use. It weighs a mere 2.3 pounds and carries a bright 10 inch LCD along with an energy efficient yet powerful 1.6 GHz Atom processor. In addition to that it comes with a 2.5" SATA hard drive with an 80GB capacity. The bright 10 inch screen along with the 1024 x 600 resolution makes internet browsing delightful and easy on the eyes.

I was amazed with the capabilities of the atom processor when I saw it perform heavy duty tasks and processes such as running Photoshop, Eclipse IDE, or even playing Warcraft. Although it wasn't too pleasant to play Warcraft on the MSI Wind, it proved it was capable of handling such tasks.

With the 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth transmission, MSI Wind users can enjoy Internet access anywhere so you can perform tasks such as read emails, blog, follow twitter, or even check out SharedReviews.

On the downside, the outer casing is a bit fragile and the hinges connecting the LCD to the netbook's base are weak, thus make the screen shaky while moving the laptop.

The netbook comes in 2 variants: 3 cell battery and 6 cell battery

The 6 cell ranges at about $450 and has a great 4 hour battery life and the 3 cell is about $40 cheaper.

The MSI Wind delivers great value for the money; it even falls within its own category in the netbook market due to its outstanding performance.
