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.

Hackint0sh netbooks seeing battery boost under OS X 10.5.7

Apple's recently released 10.5.7 update for OS X seems to have backfired, with some MacBook users reporting sluggish performance and hardware issues, while owners of Hackint0sh netbooks have found their battery life much improved with the new software.  The change has led to suggestions that Apple is readying OS X for better power management on netbook-style hardware, such as might be used in a 10-inch Mac touchscreen tablet/UMPC.

MSI X-Slim X340 reviewed: $899 bargain Air-alternative

MSI's X-Slim X340 ultraportable may be all about the skinny glamor, but once you've succumbed to its slender charms you want a machine that can handle at least the minimum of mobile processing tasks.  According to LaptopMag's X340 review, as long as you're not looking to game or edit video, that shouldn't be too much of an issue: the 1.4GHz Core 2 Solo CULV chip may rack up only half the PCMark Vantage points as a ThinkPad X200, but it's good enough to run Vista, Office 2007, crank up tabs in Firefox or play 720p video.
