MSI X-Slim X340 gets another review: poor build & slow CPU still concerns

After the MSI X-Slim X340's recent frankly awful review, we've been waiting for a third-opinion and hopefully some indication that the ultraportable's poor showing was a one-off aberration.  Unfortunately, many of the critique points from that review - poor build quality, "cheap and nasty" trackpad and "tacky" keyboard - also crop up in NotebookReview's piece.

MSI Wind U200 gets video overview, HD playback testing

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.
