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.

Alongside that CULV processor there’s WiFi b/g/n, 2GB of RAM (up to 4GB supported) and a 250GB hard-drive. MSI also throw in a 3-cell battery – with which the Wind U200 weighs 1.4kg – but a 6-cell version is an option. There’s also a 4-in-1 memory card reader, 1.3-megapixel webcam, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and an HDMI output.
What’s left up in the air is specific release dates and pricing. We’ve estimated that the MSI Wind U200 will come in at around the $699 mark, but MSI themselves are yet to comment.
