CES 2010: MSI Wind U160 gets previewed

MSI have been very busy in recent months in its build-up to CES 2010, not only will the Wind U135 be on show but the 10-inch Wind U160 will also be previewed at the show. Looking closely at a side shot, the power button is the same as many other laptops on the market.

Engadget has laid their hands on a number of photos, and we can tell you that the design is slim and has classy look. Engadget does point out that the MSI Wind U160 looks a lot like the Toshiba Mini NB205. So what has MSI managed to do to make it different to that Toshiba netbook?

The keyboard looks a little strange as the keys are slightly raised, and its touchpad is covered in dots giving you a strange feel when running your fingers along it. An Intel Atom N450 processor with a speed of 1.66GHz powers the netbook.

Most of the hardware is the same as you would find in any other netbook on the market, but the 10 hour battery life certainly makes the U160 stand out above the rest. The starting price for this small device is $350, which is not as high as we first thought.

Once CES 2010 is underway, we will give you more news on the MSI Wind U160.
