MSI Wind12 U230 gets priced
A nice upgrade to the Wind U210 is the new MSI Wind12 U230 with the same Athlon Neo processor but on a better. The suggested retail price — Php23,994.
MSI Wind12 U230
AMD Athlon Neo X2 L335 1.6GHz Processor
AMD RS780MN + SB710
2 GB DDR2 667MHz (up to 4GB)
12.1″ display screen @ 1366×768 pixels
ATI Radeon HD3200
4-in-1 card reader
3 USB 2.0 ports
MSI promises up to 4 hours of battery life on the 6-cell battery. The 9-cell (8200mAh) battery I’m using with the Wind12 U210 registers 5.5 hours on full charge so the 4 hours on the 6-cell isn’t far off.
Villman carries the model for Php3,999 for 6 months at zero interest. The unit does not come with Windows OS though (just DOS) so you’ll need to shell out at least Php7k for Windows 7 for that one.
