MSI Wind U230-040US 12.1-inch Netbook - MSI Wind U230-040US

MSI's line of Wind netbooks aren't all packed with 10-inch and smaller screens and Intel hardware. The MSI U230-040US netbook I am checking out today is a 12.1-inch rig with AMD power. But is it worth the money?

The top of the MSI Wind U230-040US is glossy black with metallic flecks in the lid. The machine is attractive, but catches lots of fingerprints.

The bottom of the machine hides the battery and cooling grates to keep things frosty.

The right side of the machine has the memory card reader, two USB ports and the mic/audio ports along with the RJ45 port and Kensington lock port.

The keyboard on the U230 is large and nice. The only downside is that the right shift key is smaller than normal.
