MSI Wind U100 Plus in Red, Blue and Rose
MSI has been expanding its 10-inch U100 netbook series and has now included an upgraded specs and more color variations under the updated MSI Wind U100 Plus label.
MSI announced last week two new colors — Rose Champagne and Metallic Blue — although the other color (Regal Red, announced in the 4th quarter of 2008) is something I haven’t seen anywhere before either.
Aside from the color variations, the U100 Plus is also updated to include WiFi 802.11n, a 1.3M built-in webcam, Intel Atom N280 (1.66Ghz, 667MHz). MSI claims up to 7 hours of battery life on a standard battery (supposedly the optional 6-cell version).
Although MSI did not indicate the SRP, expect the current price of MSI Wind units to go down further while this new model takes in the previous price point of Php21k – php23k.
Not sure though if this is the same one that is being sold at PC Corner that we reported last month.
Update: According to MSI, the official retail price is Php22,999.
