MSI To Release 2.6lb, Atom-Based Wind This Month

By Luke Anderson

If you’re looking for an ultraportable laptop, you have plenty of options to choose from. The latest of those being the Wind from MSI. It packs a 1.6GHz Atom CPU, 80GB of storage 1GB of RAM, a 10-inch (1024×600) display and Windows XP Home. All for just $499.

I have to say that this looks mighty tempting. I’ve been looking for something a little more portable than the laptop I have now, and this one seems to fit just about everything I need. It also includes features like 802.11b/g, Bluetooth and a webcam. Battery life is expected to be right around 5.5 hours.

You’ll be able to get your hands on one starting June 16th directly from MSI. Also, if Linux is your thing, you can wait until July and get one without the Windows tax for $399.
