MSI Wind U100 Laptop

Introduction

After Asus revealed the Eee PC back in 2007, there were bound to be some who would follow suit and release their own ultra portable notebooks. With hotspots appearing throughout cities all over the world the market is becoming ripe for cheap, ultraportable, easy to use computers to perform basic tasks.

Sure, there are a selection of smart phones with Wi-Fi capability, word processing and email tools but no PDA or phone can compare to the functionality, power, and ease of use that a subnotebook gives you. Today we’re going to look at the MSI Wind U100 Series, a smart looking subnotebook aimed directly at the successful EEE PC market.

Packaging & Bundle

The MSI Wind comes packaged in a simple box with some subtle abstract artwork, a few pictures of the laptop and branding. The only thing to note about the packaging is the list of specifications located on the side. Apart from that, the box is fairly simple and nondescript.

The package also arrives with a white glove for the laptop which is sufficiently padded and has a netted pocket inside for your USB sticks or other accessories. It isn’t made out of the highest quality materials but it does the job and offers better protection than some other products.

Inside the box containing we have a fairly simple bundle containing the manual, warranty information, windows and driver CDs, AC adaptor and the laptop itself. You don’t get any fancy kit with the laptop but it isn’t supposed to be elaborate and complicated, it’s supposed to be simple and portable.
