MSI too has jumped onto the Cedar Trail netbook bandwagon. The MSI U180 is the company’s first Cedar Trail Atom powered netbook. It was first showcased at the CES in January. And now MSI has officially introduced the 10 incher.
In terms of looks, the MSI Wind U180 isn’t all that different from MSI’s existing line of netbooks, but under the hood it is a different machine. The new MSI U180 will be available with a choice of the 1.6Ghz Intel Atom N2660 or the faster 1.86Ghz Atom N2800 processor. The laptop supports up to 2GB of RAM and a 250GB or 320GB hard drive. Both 3-cell and 6-cell battery options are available. The 10 inch display has a resolution of 1024 x 600 pixels.
Other specifications include 2 USB 2.0 ports, Bluetooth 3.0 and WiFi 802.11n. The laptop runs Windows 7 Starter Edition. The Cedar Trail Atom processors have HD video capabilities, so MSI has also equipped the laptop with an HDMI output port. No word on pricing at the moment.
