MSI U160 Goes the Official Route, Available Now

MSI Computers has officially announced the availability of their latest Wind model netbook, the U160. This particular model is actually the winner of the 2010 iF Product Design award, and the company is proud to finally bring the product to the consumers.

CeBIT 2010 is coming, and MSI are tipping their hand for what pleasures they'll have at the show.  Most interesting are the latest Wind Top all-in-ones, the 24-inch AE2420 and the 22-inch AE2280; rather than the nettop-based models we've seen before, these new Wind Tops will use Intel's Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, ramping up to 3D capabilities on the top-spec machine.

MSI Wind U160 gets video unboxing/hands-on: quality improved

We had a brief play with MSI's new Wind U160 netbook back at CES 2010, and came away uncertain about what felt like more than a little flex in the keyboard.  Fingers-crossed that hasn't panned out to the latest models, and the people to ask are over at NewGadgets.de; they've picked up a U160 and have promptly shot a video hands-on.

MSI Tegra tablet coming 2H 2010 for $500

We'd question the timing of announcing tablet plans so close to Apple's iPad launch, but with mixed reactions to the Cupertino slate perhaps there's room for rivals to sneak in.  MSI's sales director, Sambora Chen, has confirmed that they too have a 10-inch touchscreen slate in the works, which will arrive in the second half of 2010 priced at around $500.
