MSI says that the U160 is available right now at Frys,, and for $379.99. We already know the specs of the U160, but in case you missed them I will outline them again. The U160 uses an Intel N450 Atom CPU.

It runs Windows 7 Starter, has a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 LCD screen that is LED backlit, and graphics via Intel GMA3150. It has 1GB of RAM, 160GB of storage, WiFi, Bluetooth, and a memory card reader. The 6-cell battery provides a claimed 15 hours of battery life per charge.
