If you've been interested in a new netbook for quite some time but have been hoping for one to be released that's within your price range, the MSI Wind U123 , just might be your answer. The computer manufacturer, MSI Computer, has just released their latest netbook and it has quite a bit to offer.
This new netbook sports an Intel Atom 1.66 GHz N280 processor, 1GB of memory and a 160GB hard drive. It also features an ergonomic keyboard for ease of use and a 10.2-inch LCD display.
The U123 comes with EasyFace identification software, and the option of a 6-cell or a 9-cell battery. It's also available in four different color options including white, grey, red and blue. You can get the MSI Wind U123 starting today for $379.99.
The MSI Wind U200 might look quite a lot like its Atom N270 predecessors, but under the glossy hood there's a whole load of Celeron ULV SFF 723 goodness going on. Given that Celeron CPUs have long been the whipping boys of the processor market, that might seem a strange thing to say, but when you're comparing them to the low-power Atom chips they all of a sudden look more welcome. NewGadgets.de managed to score a hands-on with the U200, and you can see their video after the cut.

As expected, MSI have announced their Wind U200 netbook, based on Intel's Celeron ULV SFF 723 processor (now part of the Intel CULV line) with GMA 4500M graphics and a 12-inch 1366 x 768 LED-backlit display. Netbooknews.de stopped by the launch to shoot some photos and hands-on video, which you can see after the cut.

Hannspree are hoping to catch up with the netbook crowd with their own model, the HANNSnote SN10E1. A rebadged MSI Wind, the HANNSnote has the same old specs that have now etched themselves into our weary brains: Intel's Atom N270 1.6GHz processor, 1GB of RAM and a 10-inch 1024 x 600 display.
