12+ hours of battery life for the MSI Wind U110 – Full Review
We haven’t heard much from MSI lately, especially following the debacle with the Wind U115 hybrid which was forced off the shelves by Microsoft for not following the netbook spec guidelines. Now, however, there is the U110 which drops the hybrid disk drive setup and adds a 7800mAh 9 cell battery to power the same Poulsbo platform innards (Intel Atom Z + GMA 500 graphics). With this monster battery, LaptopMag got 12.5 hours off of a single charge in their review of the machine. On a less favourable note, they complain of a cramped keyboard and a sub-par touchpad on the netbook.
The MSI Wind U110 is on sale in the US for $350 but here in the UK we’ll have to make do with the regular Wind U100 for now.
