MSI Wind U270 Netbook Comes with AMDs Brazos 2.0

MSI logoMSI, the well-known mainboard manufacturer is also in the business of making mobile PCs, such as the fastest Ivy Bridge notebook called GT70, or todays Win U270 that has just been listed on the companys official website.

The netbook is powered by AMDs E2-1800 processor.

The operating system of choice is Microsofts Windows 7 Home Premium that comes preinstalled on a 320 GB HDD.

Wind U270 comes equipped with 2 GB of DDR3 memory, but it can be upgraded to a total of 8 GB DDR3 system memory using the single SO-DIMM slot available.

The iGPU is AMDs Radeon HD7340 Discrete-Class graphics and offers much more performance than anything Intel has accompanying the Atom.

The 11.6 screen offers a mediocre 1366 x 768 resolution that should suffice for such a mid-range product with a medium screen size.

The multimedia side is completed with a 1.3 MP webcam, two small speakers and one mic.

Connectivity is well-endowed with one SD card reader, a HDMI port, a D-SUB 15 VGA connector, two USB 2.0 ports and one USB 3.0 connector, along with the two usual audio jacks and the RJ45 LAN connector.

It has a 6-cell battery with a rated life of just 4.6 hours.

The system only consumes around 13 watts when idle and weighs just 1.39 Kg. Thats around 2.86 pounds for a netbook with 12-month warranty.

The 5400 rpm drive can be easily upgraded with an affordable SSD or a low-profile SSD if the normal size unit doesnt fit.

MSI also offers an external optical unit as an option, and were sure there would be a cheaper version without Microsofts bloatware.
