MSI Wind U110 and U115 netbooks added to line up

MSI Wind U110 and U115 netbooks added to line up

Just last week we heard about the upcoming MSI Wind U120, which will be making its grand debut at CES 2009. But now it looks as if two more netbooks will be added to MSI's U Series including the MSI U110 and the MSI U115.

The MSI U115 is really quite different. It features a SSD and a hard drive. So, the OS would then be installed on the SSD, but all of your data and information would be stored on a larger hard drive. This makes sense insofar as it will keep the price down and allow you room to save data, but doesn't it seem a bit counterproductive to save your data on the drive that can be scratched or ruined?

You will have several options with the U115, including a 8GB SSD/80GB HDD, a 16GB SSD/120GB HDD or a 32GB SSD/160GB HDD. The MSI Wind U110 does not have the SSD configurations. However, both models feature Atom processors and have 10-inch screens.

ASUS confirm touchscreen Eee PCs, Windows 7 in 2009

ASUS confirm touchscreen Eee PCs, Windows 7 in 2009

The Eee PC will get at least two touchscreen variants announced in early 2009, with both convertible and standard notebook form-factor designs being explored.  That's the latest news from ASUS CEO Jerry Shen, who has been sharing some more details about what's become the largest netbook range on the market.  As well as the touchscreen models, ASUS have obviously decided to take Steve Ballmer at his word and miss Windows Vista out completely; instead, they're planning to introduce Windows 7 to netbooks in the second half of 2009.

Acer Aspire One D150 reviewed: battery shrinking, but price impressive

Acer Aspire One D150 reviewed: battery shrinking, but price impressive

After an unboxing photoset and video preview, the 10-inch Acer Aspire One D150 now gets a full review courtesy of Laptop Mag.  The segment leader gets a slicker casing, speedier 160GB hard-drive and larger touchpad, while the bigger display - although frustratingly glossy at some angles - is always welcome.  However have Acer soured the deal with an attempt at battery cost-cutting?

SlashGear Week in Review: Week 5 2009

SlashGear Week in Review: Week 5 2009

We opened the week with our first-impressions of the T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8900, a surprisingly adept smartphone that's managed to impress despite the absence of 3G.  We've also been playing with Vuzix's iWear AV230XL OLED video headset, and the VIA Artigo A2000 Barebone Storage Server.  Finally, if you prefer your gadgets with a bit of (artificial) flesh on their bones, take a look at our Orbita Mouse unboxing; we'll have the full review this coming week.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 43 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 43 2008

We kicked off the week with some high-profile reviews here at SlashGear, putting the latest MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops through their paces.  If you're considering one of these slick new machines - or are wondering what style features other manufacturers will be copying over the next six months - make sure to check them out!  We also played with a more budget computing option in the shape of the ASUS Eee PC 1000HA.

Meanwhile cellphones have been on the test bench, with Sprint's pair of new Samsungs - the messaging Rant and the musical HighNote - squaring up against Velocity Mobile's 103 smartphone.  We had to leave our desks to try out Blackline's GPS Snitch, however, but were back in before curfew to play with some toys: WowWee's Bladestar remote control helicopter, for one, and a rather more unusual review of the WowWee Femisapien

AMD planning netbook strategy for November reveal

AMD planning netbook strategy for November reveal

AMD are preparing to reveal their netbook intentions at an analyst meeting on November 13th.  Management at the company have previously been apathetic toward the segment, with VP of advanced marketing Pat Moorhead suggesting they only really made sense "around the house" rather than as a valid mobile warrior tool; CEO Dirk Meyer is now describing the AMD strategy as a "complicated answer".  It's likely to address both battery life and video performance, both key areas criticised by Moorhead.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 41 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 41 2008

Laptops big and small have monopolized the headlines this week, with the most anticipation being Apple's upcoming MacBook event on Tuesday October 14th.  SlashGear will be live-blogging the whole thing, so join us at http://Live.SlashGear.com at 10am PST.  Meanwhile the 'Brick' rumors of what Steve Jobs might be announcing keep on coming: we've seen water-jet cutting systems, $800 price-points and several purported photo leaks.  Of course, Apple are saying nothing until Tuesday; they're too busy blaming NVIDIA for a spate of MacBook graphics failures.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 38 2008

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 38 2008

After a week or two on the down-low, netbooks have been back among the headlines with Sony grudgingly admitting that it will probably make one while MSI discussed plans for their second-generation range.  Not bad for something an AMD VP described as only good for "around the house".  Elsewhere, it's been 3G and netbooks getting married: Vodafone revealed their UK deal with Dell, and T-Mobile their Acer deal in Germany.  Speaking of Acer, we unboxed their Aspire One and will have the full review on Monday.
