MSI confirm no ATI graphics in Wind U110 Eco

Disappointing news from MSI, as the company confirms a misprint on the MSI Wind U110 Eco specifications.  Officially announced yesterday, the netbook’s two main draws were its 9hrs battery life and the ATI Mobility Radeon HD3200 graphics card; unfortunately, the graphics are in fact courtesy of Intel’s GMA 500 chipset.

Other specs include Intel’s Menlow Atom 1.6GHz Z530, 1GB of RAM and Windows XP, together with a 160GB hard-drive.  There’s also optional Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi draft-n support.

MSI’s US wing are currently “undecided” as to whether the Wind U110 Eco will make it across to the US, and given this news about the netbook’s video prowess it’s no longer something we’re really holding out for.  MSI’s own U115 Hybrid scores much better in battery testing: over 13hrs on a single charge.
