MSI introduce new Wind Netbooks in the UK OC3D Official Press Release logo
 
In June 2008 MSI released the MSI Wind Netbook it weighted only 1 kilogram, making it ideal for outdoor use. Living in the new age of the internet, it allowed users to have an effective internet connection for professional and personal use anywhere. The MSI Wind Netbook was also equipped with Bluetooth 2.0 and a 1.3 Mega Pixel webcam and 10" Wide LED backlight display. The 1024 x 600 resolution allows the full display of Web Pages while browsing, this gives users more freedom when exploring the internet.

MSI Wind PCThe MSI Wind notebook was widely complemented on its userfriendly keyboard, this was because we use the same ergonomic keyboard as used MSI’s larger notebooks. The keyboard not only has great texture, it also has increased space between the keys, allowing for a comfortable typing experience.

Unlike other netbook options the MSI didnt compromise on memory capacity, the MSI Wind Notebook was equipped with the 2.5 inch standard 80GB hard drive. This means that despite its size the MSI Wind Netbook can operate without the worry of insufficient storage capacity. The MSI Wind Notebook offers a smart and portable accessory for everyday life.

Today MSI is proud to announce three new variations of the ever popular U100 Wind Netbook. MSI Wind U100 just got even better! Now U100 Wind is available with: New Colours, Suse Linux, and 120Gb HardDisk capacity as standard!

Nearly bought this board ...

Today I received an Abit IX48 GT3, and have to modify a scythe ninja (trim 4 fins) in order to get past the skycraper of a nb cooler!

What is the deal with all these cokey coolers ? Why we want a wad of heatsink sticking out the back of the case ? Why we want big arse tower things ?

Just give us an oustanding board with decent cooling... most of the hardcored guys take them off anyways.

I'm sorry Rast, that boards cooling is simply gorgeous. Unless you're watercooling you won't need to replace it.

Great review. As always, DFI's are nail-biting, scream-inducing overclocking nightmares but if you fiddle long enough they hit the spot big time :drool:

Stretching the mediocre points a little I feel, I've not met an EZ Clear CMOS switch that works every time yet to be honest

I guess it comes down to your point of view. Overclocking has never been so easy with other boards, maybe that takes some of the fun out of it or maybe it relieves the stress of endlessly rebooting, stress testing resetting BIOS etc.

Point taken over the switches, I was just peeved while writing the conclusion as I was stupidly running the chip at 3.9ghz( I'm always one to push things as far as possible lol) and had a BSOD when the conclusion was almost complete. The board then wouldn't reboot (again) without a jumper switch. Grrrrr:banghead:

That said there's simply no doubting it's one hell of a clocker and providing you have the patience, as the review showed, the overclocking results can be astounding.

I wish more companies would adopt the digi PWM. the socket area is just so much cleaner.

Just cries out 'insulate me!'

Fantastic job as ever webbo!

Wow... It's so flat and clean it reflects logos that aren't actually there :eek:
