March 10, 2010, By Thomas Antony

MSI unveiled its Wind12 line of AMD ultraportable notebooks a few months back, and the original U230 was shown in a video back in November 2009. Now they have unveiled their next generation 12-inch netbooks, in the form of the Wind12 U230-033 and U230-040. The new models come packed with a larger screen and more computing power. Both come preloaded with Windows 7 Home Premium and 12.1 inch 1366×768 ( WXGA ) display. The U230-033 will be priced at $429.99 and the higher-end model U230-040 at $479.99.

Both versions are pretty similar in specs and layout. The machines come with 2GB of DDR2 memory and an ATi Radeon HD 3200 GPU along with a 6 cell battery. The U230-033 runs on an Athlon Neo MV-40 processor while the U230-040 runs on an Athlon X2 L335. The Wind12 U230 notebooks comes with MSI’s EDS ( Ergonomic De-stress ) keyboard with 51% larger keys to reduce stress on fingers and wrists to improve accuracy and comfort. Other features common to both notebooks include 1.3M webcam, HDMI port, 3 USb 2.0 ports, VGA port and a 4×1 card reader.

The new Wind12 U230 models are now available from the online retailer NewEgg starting at $429.99 and comes with a 1-year limited warranty from MSI.
